Well first is the addition of this little stinker to our family!
This is him grumpy from pure exhaustion. Normally he runs around like he is part squirrel.
Although I used to race a good bit, I have taken about a year and a half off from it. Even though I was still working out and trying new things like, crossfit, yoga, and kiteboarding I never felt compelled to step on the starting line. Until last weekend! I am however glad to say that I finally raced again last weekend and really enjoyed it. I am sure there will be more races in the near future. Along with some other "events," but I'll save that for another post. In my defence being hit by a deer on my bike and breaking my sacrum only to be followed 3 months later with a random slip and fall ending in a broken elbow with 6 screws and a plate didn't really leave me with many racing options.
I guess overall my view on life has just changed. Maybe it's maturity, maybe it's experience, maybe it's good or bad but either way I can not explain how strange it felt to look back at what I wrote two years ago and not recognize that person. As I read those old posts great memories came back and as I sit here today life is pretty good, so I have no complaints! That being said its time for one of my favorite workouts, the tempo run!!!
