enjoying every second of life and running


Out and Back

Ugh…I wrote this post out once already and it looks like only the pics saved and not the post. I hate when the technology gods eat my post.

So here it goes, attempt #2.
It was a busy Labor Day weekend for us. The weekend included a long run of 21 miles with Rob. We did an out and back from our house, meaning we ran through town on our trail until we hit 10.5 miles and then turned around for home. Time flew by as we chatted about running, cycling, travel, airplane and house projects.

Before we got to our chores we did squeeze in some fun shopping which included this sweet Louis Vuitton. I felt like pretty woman as they served us champaign and personalized my purchase. Definitely a fun little Saturday!

Sunday we got our new pedals installed.

A blurry picture of the cleat.

Speed Plays are very easy to clip in and out of it seems. I dunno, I have no other comparison. I had one foot on the curb in front of our house and practiced getting the feel. Then Rob and I went for a mini-ride and practiced slowing down and clipping in and out. So far, no falling clipped in. We will keep practicing with small routes.

Monday we spent the day polishing the plane. I updated he Flights Page with a few pics too. We will have news in the airplane dept to share soon! Hope you all had a relaxing Lanor Day!


Training Wheels

So there was a change of plans for my bike order. Turns out the model I was originally getting is unavailable until February. There is no way I can wait that long. I want to get familiar with cycling this fall. Plus I’m excited to ride on a trainer.

So my new bike is a TREK Speed Concept 7.

We got our pedals, but we won’t have them put on for a few days. I need to get used to the bike first so I’m on some loaner pedals that don’t go with the bike at all. Plus I don’t have any cycling clothes. So much to learn and to buy. Running is definitely an easier sport to get into.

I’m overwhelmed by all there is to know, but happy to have another adventure. It was a nice, wobbly ride today. Hopefully I get the hang of this. 🙂
