Weekend run and ride:

Well it’s the weekend and I am not training for anything so I am just fooling around, just getting in some junk miles.
I ran the Chickamauga marathon a few weeks ago and I have been feeling kind of burnt out, so I have been spending some time on my new bike. I figure the weathers been perfect for riding and hey I should take advantage of it while I can. Running has been second fiddle to riding for the last few weeks, and I’ve been a reenergized.

Today was a quick one hour ride, I would have gone longer but I promised the family I would take them to the North Point Mall to go to the American Girl store. Tomorrow is a six mile run, and then I’m taking the family to see the Nutcracker and the Fox Theater.

My plan is to take it easy (still swimming, riding and running) until early January, then it time to ramp up for 70.3 FLA. So for now its time to recharge the batteries and spend some time with the family that loves me.

The older I get the harder it is for me to slowdown and truly feel the sprit of Christmas.
So this year I am really making an effort to smell the roses and be there for my family.

Merry Christmas to all and please slow down a bit and really enjoy the season.

It's weird that you posted to my blog yesterday because I was just thinking about how I really need to *just slow down* and enjoy the next few weeks...and then I read on your blog that you are throwing out the same advice! Maybe it's a sign that I really do need to (or that we all need to!)

Have fun at the American Girl store :)
