Here's a quick run-down of what I've been up to.
Memorial Day - went to South Fork, CO to hang out with some friends in college. It was crazy-windy, and there was a bit too much snow on the ground for any amount of hiking. But I got to sleep in and read books! And enjoy pretty mountain scenery!

Got a Pedicure - my first one in I don't know.... a year and a half? at least? Of course, now its been 3 weeks and my pedicure is all chipped and looks terrible now. But it was fun while it lasted.

Running with people - sense a theme here! My IMTX training was mostly solo, so I'm really enjoying being out with other people. It really helps that I'm not seriously training for anything, which means I don't have specific targets. This gives me a LOT of flexibility. Tuesday nights I've beend going to track workout with my tri club. There's usually ~8 of us, I'm the slowest (usually). Track is a bit hard right now as I'm still recovering from IMTX, but its so nice to be out with people and to (at least try) to build some speed. Also, 6 PM track night in CO is no where near as hot and horrible as track night in Houston. AND I have a great view of Pikes Peak from the track. Its awesome!
