Another Auld Lang Syne

If you didn’t know, the song “Auld Lang Syne”, traditionally played at midnight on New Year’s Eve, loosely translates to, “For old time’s sake“…


As we bid farewell on 2017, I wanted to do a quick recap and update on life since I last posted. Mostly told through photos :).

2D22ACCA-114E-414C-BDE9-12ECBB71F710Sandie and I tracked and cheered on our friends Jeremy, Cristina, and Laura from Brownsville as they competed in Ironman Arizona over Thanksgiving break.

AB687B9E-8A2B-4759-B1C0-031A7EC9E374Orangetheory Brownsville opened it’s doors, and you KNOW my friends and I were down for any themed workout. We also fill in the 5:00am class spots!



3B20A498-F1BD-46EC-AFBE-BCD8E0C1F301I was in full-swing concert mode the last couple weeks of school. Three nightly performances and a day of Christmas caroling around town! Honey, I was READY for break!




The OTF Member’s Christmas party entailed all of the coaches attempting a challenge which included a 2000 meter row, 2 mile run, and 100 burpees! Poor Mike was working his butt off while my friends and I enjoyed our wine. But he did it!



Christmas morning we enjoyed our cold front with some coffees on our back porch. Then we headed to my parent’s house for lunch and opening our stockings.



Even though we’re on break, we’ve still been getting our workouts in. But it’s so nice to be able to stop for a coffee and visit afterwards. Here we are at a very cute local coffeeshop called Juice Us.

Because Orangetheory Brownsville is just getting on it’s feet, Mike and I can’t make any major definite plans for 2018. We DID sign back on with Big Sexy Racing for 2018 (how could we not?!), and are trying to make a Colorado trip happen in late February, so we’ll see.

Happy New Year friends! Here’s to 2018!
