Week 12 – Then and Now

June 7th, 2009

We’ve been looking through some of our older photos.  I thought it would be interesting to do a similar photo shoot.

  • Newer, lighter bike.  June 2009


    In 2002 we were just getting back into cycling after an eight year hiatus.  We did our first organized century in early June that year on our mountain bikes with slick tires.  It was America’s Most Beautiful Ride – around Lake Tahoe.

    Here I am seven years and several thousand miles later, training for a Half Ironman Triathlon.

    Speaking of training, I’m a liitle freaked.  My race is in eight weeks.  This is the last week of school.  Yippee!!  But oodles to do as I am changing rooms again.  Next week I’ll spend Monday – Thursday taking the first class for my Masters.  I think it’s going to be a little intense – 8 hours a day as a student.  Early Friday morning we fly to San Diego to hook up with our RAAM team.  I KNOW that week is going to be intense.  So, I’m a little concerned about how much training I’ll get in the next three weeks.  In July we’re spending ten days in Maine and Vermont.  While we’re in Vermont we will be riding the Six Gaps .  I plan on doing some running those days after riding.  But vacation plans don’t always go the way I think they will.

    Yet, I’m really looking forward to my various adventures.  Sometimes, it’s the journey, not the destination that matters.
