Christmas Time

Christmas has come and gone, so that means some new baby photos of course and I begin my recovery from overeating.

Ashley turned 32 (she is getting old) and we did 32 x 400 on the track.  Not much of a suffer-fest and ended up being pretty darn fun.  We, or should we say "I," wanted Ashley to tell one thing that happened each year at the beginning of each lap.  It went like this:

32: I had a baby
30: We moved
29: "I have to do this every time!?  I don't remember. Can't we just run!" Yes, we can.

So we got three years out of the deal.

Ryah is now 7 months old- Crazy- that little bugger has certainly brought changes to my life.  She is great and seems to feel the best when she gets her two naps daily and an outing.  No much of a surprise, but she doesn't like to sit at home.

I am actually seeing a lot of similarities between her and myself.  For instance:

1) I like to eat large amounts of food 8 times a day
2) I feel best when I get to take long naps often
3) I often fall into a deep drolling sleep before 8:00

I am starting to think more about what races I want to do in 2012.  I put in for the Leadville 100 mountain bike race on a bit of a whim.  I am still at the point where I get excited if I don't crash during a ride, but my skills are improving slowly. We shall see.

It is a goal to write a bit more consistently here this upcoming year.  As it goes with the best of intentions, often they are swept aside by working, life at home, parenting, training and sleeping.  Yet, it would be nice.

Ash may write a bit more later, but as for me- Merry Late Christmas and I will try to write more soon.
