Time for some iron

Time for some iron

When last I wrote I was full of bravado and bullet proofness.  I’m afraid to say things haven’t been all that straight forward in the time since then.  Sure, I’ve had some high times, but life has also interfered with the ride along the way.

Soon to be half an iron woman.

This week I finally took the plunge and did what I’ve been threatening to do for a few months now.  I entered my inaugural 70.3 race.  Otherwise known as a half ironman (although I tend to think it should be called an ironperson).

Day two in Roscoe, we did not go Skiing….but we did manage to completely relax and spend some quality time with our 3 little girls in the country (yes Chilli Sparkles is one of them).  I feel super blessed after spending my second weekend at our friends river house in Roscoe. Such lovely, generous, clever … Continue reading

Weekend fun, skiing in up state NY – Belleayre to be precise. It was cold and grey but still awesome to be in the fresh air, blood pumping flying (sort of) down the mountain. Love the Catskills!
