Hanging around

Spending most of my day on the computer today. Although I've been super busy with nutrition consultations I'm taking a break from work this weekend. well, I'll try but when you love what you do, it's hard not to spend extra time on things which are work-related. I'm watching the NYC marathon trials right now on TV and checked out the post-race coverage on the internet earlier this morning. I'm also checking out the Ironman Florida coverage. Looks like great weather and I'm thinking there are going to be some surprises with the pro's and super fast times. Tomorrow I'll be watching the NYC marathon and I'm sure Karel will want to see how Lance runs. Sadly, I just heard that Ryan Shay was rushed to the hospital at mile 5 of the trials and he past away. very sad for the running community and my sympathy goes out to his family and friends.

Happy Birthday Aaron!!!

A big HAPPY birthday to my brother who turns 23 today!!! Woah, he is catching up to me. I am lucky to have such a wonderful family.

Aaron graduated from the business school at the University of Michigan and if you know anything about UM you probably know about the prestigious Ross Business School. Not only did my brother graduate last year with an outstanding GPA but he was a full ride scholarship, 4-year NCAA athlete. I have no idea how he fit in school with all his gymnastic practices (including summe

Happy Halloween!

Staying busy...

I may be walking a bit funny but I have no pain in my leg and I am really happy about that. Haven't felt pain for the past week so the healing process is going very well. Just a slight limp due to sore and weak quad muscles but it is a great conversation starter! I got back in the pool pretty quickly after Kona but it took a week and a half to get back on my bike. Now that I can ride again, I am feeling super excited for next season. So many goals and races to think about! Saturday morning I rode just a bit and as I mentioned in the last blog, it felt great to be outside in comfortable florida weather. Karel did his own thing on Saturday morning but the weather wasn't so kind to him. He got a little rain during his ride. In the evening, Karel and I went to the movies (something we rarely do) and we saw Dan In Real Life. This was the cutest movie I have ever seen! If you are a girl, single parent, wife and/or mother you have to see this movie! And for my guy friends, it is reall
