Why I love mornings

I am into my training plan for the Olympic Tri I will do in a few weeks. This morning was my long bike. The Dad thinks I'm nuts to get up so early in the morning but I love it.

I woke up this morning and the sky was crystal clear. I could see Orion sharp and clear above me and off to the South was a beautiful lightening storm.

I headed inside to check out 4 different weather sites to make sure that storm wasn't headed toward my ride route then I set off.

I had to stop and take this picture... Good Morning from the Lord!

The Big Bit swam/ran a kids Splash-n-Dash today. It is amazing to see her strength, courage and self assurance. She is not on swim team, she's not a runner. But she loves doing these races and trying her best.

Her swim was in a pool. Most of the kids are on competition teams but Big Bit held her own. She got stuck in a traffic jam but she didn't panic.

So very proud!!

Mad Dash Miles

Have you ever decided on a plan of action despite it being a bad idea... Then something unexpected happens that turns it into a really bad idea?

There was a heat advisory today but the girls were tucked away so I decided to bike to the gym, swim, then bike home. It's only 6km to the gym so I made sure I had plenty of water and set out. I had checked the weather, which is why I knew about the heat advisory.

As I'm swimming, I hear whistles but figured it was adult swim or something. No. It's thunder and we have to clear the pool and deck. I still have to bike home.

I made it, but I rode REALLY fast. This was the sky when I got home... with lots of rumbling behind me!
