Ok, now that I think I've figured out how to upload my phone videos, here's another of Sage. Enjoy her new-found language skills. There are some words that sound questionable.... not our fault. She comes up with all her own material. :)
Hopefully, it doesn't take too long to load. If it does, let me know, since I'm new to this aspect of blogging.
Steve, Sage and I went down to Moab last weekend. We went down to compete in the Moab XTerra Triathlon races. Steve and I did the Olympic Road race, meaning we didn't mountain bike it, but road on the road. Clever.
The race was good. Got our trash kicked, as we're pretty out of shape. This was the motivating race to get us working out this spring. Well, as it turns out, it's hard to work out while moving and getting settled and otherwise being busy. Have I mentioned that I have a hard time being consistent with working out ever since Sage was born? Yes, it's hard for me.
Anyway, back to the race. The swim was in Ken's lake, which was nice and chilly. We had rented wetsuits, but still it was cold. It took me the first 5 minutes or so of the race to even catch my breath. Every time I put my face in the water I'd gasp for breath. It was actually pretty frustrating for me, since swimming is the easiest part of a tri for me. I got pretty anxious and had to really control my head to stay focused and know that I was ok.
The bike was ok, more uphill than I would have liked. But the downhill was awesome!!!! The run was really good. I was surprised. I don't usually like trail running, but that was a blast. It was nice because Steve and I ran together, so that was fun. Slow, yes we were, but we had fun.
Now we're more motivated to keep working out and racing. We'll see what the rest of the summer brings. I was going to post photos from the race, but the ones online are horrible (and I couldn't copy and paste them... can't steal images after running our own photo business). Some friends snagged some photos of us, so when I get those, I'll post them up.
A huge thanks to Heather and Spencer Babcock for watching Sage during the race!!!!!! And thanks to Karl and Sarah Jarvis for hanging out with us before and after. Good friends are a great thing!
I'm very pleased to announce that we have the internet at our house again. We made an attempt to live internet free at our house, but, lemme tell ya, it's no fun. So, we bit the bullet and we're now married to Comcast for a year. Well, ok, not married, but paying them to attach us to the vastness of information and the connection filled world of the net.
So, I will hopefully blog more frequently again. And participate in everyone else's blogs again as well.
My Mother's Day has been nice. Some breakfast cooked by Steve-o the magnificent. Great hugs from Sage-aroni. Good times at church in our new ward. Then a fantastic nap, dinner with my mom at my sister's house and then a quick hello at Steve's parents. And now back home to surf before going to bed.
Great day. Thanks Steve for changing almost all of Sage's diapers today! :)
