I'm taking a break..

I am taking a break from filling every free minute with work. Instead I am getting back on the bike and logging some hours. The work needed on the rentals is now a small amount and I don't have a super short timeline to work with. Yeah me!

Yesterday was our 10 year anniversary. Becky, Abi, and I celebrated with a trip to the Como Zoo and one of Abi's favorite activities...BIKE RACE! I raced my bike poorly and managed to locate a tree to crash into hard. My body was not firing with the same horse power as earlier this summer plus I had a hard time focusing. I was all over the place even before I checked the stability of a good sized tree (my knee is not so happy about this FYI).

Abi rocked the kids race and seems more and more determined to go fast. This was really the first time that I gave her almost no assisted "biden handups". She rocked it and even knows what candy in the bin we'll let her hoard.

Today we planned on a night out to celebrate as a couple. Instead, we are taking that money and using it for another purpose. I encourage you to do the same.

Read, do as you will.

We all get entrenched in our own lives, but try take time to care about others as well. Now would be a good time.

Feels like home.

With so much to unpack still and organize, it feels comforting that I can finally make my own coffee (took awhile to find all the needed stuff) and explore all my pressing needs on the Internet (ie cycling sites and blogs). Funny, I felt like my move was sponsored by Trek with all the marked boxes we used from the shop.

Now as I finally get back on the bike, I hope to regain some fitness in a respectable amount of time. My workload at the properties is decreasing, so my ride time should increase. Looking not to embarrass myself, I will be skipping my 3rd planned MN series race this weekend. Looking forward to toeing a start line soon though.
