Sweet summertime…my favorite time of the year! Wanted to take the time to update on the goings-ons within the past month.
Finished off my 9th year of teaching with our choir musical and 5th grade talent show.
Then Mike & I flew out to Boulder, CO to watch the Ironman with our Big Sexy Racing team. It was a blast, just as I expected it would be.
I do have to say, there are so many amazing people who participate in this sport! Got to meet new friends along with two pro triathletes Rachel Joyce and a Craig “Crowie” Alexander!
I also loved spending time with Chris & Erika McDonald and their adorable kiddoes…
After the Boulder trip I hopped right into swim lessons, which I’ve enjoyed teaching for the past 14 years (I can’t believe it’s been that long?!!).
I’ve also been living up the freedom of summer break spending time with my girlfriends hanging at the pool and the beach of course!
Also have been trying to get back into triathlon training. I have signed up for 2 sprint tri’s this summer, the first being the Harlingen Triathlon Festival in mid July, the second Tri Girl Sprint also in Harlingen in August.
In other exciting news, I’m SUPER close to being an official Orangetheory coach! I’ve been practicing shadowing and coaching small blocks, and Mike has also let me coach a couple of entire classes myself (with his supervision, of course). It’s a bit overwhelming but I know that with more practice it’ll get easier.
The dogs have been good too! Blake has literally grown like a horse and he’s learning to get along with his brothers and sisters.
So there’s some updates for now! Looking forward to the 4th of July next week (one of my fav holidays). Will prob try to make my way out to the beach that week and of course enjoy some delicious grilled goods. Anybody doing anything special for the fourth?
TRI WITH JOY!
