The Long, Hot Blog-less Summer
I have a million excuses. If you're an editor, I know you've heard them all. (As an author, I'm sure you have a few creative ones yourself.) But I'm copping to the fact I've been a bad, bad blogger. So, while we get this back on track, I'll catch you up on our summer so far!
- Tim is sleeping again! This corresponds directly to the fact that the triplets are old enough to be sleeping themselves. So, we have Tim's brain back! Yea!
- Bryan is finally in Indianapolis! This weekend marks his move from Bloomington to Indy making it easier for us all to get together without him blowing a day on his commute.
- I finished the Danskin Triathlon in Chicago! Thanks to author and triathlete extraordaire, Sally Edwards, I trained for and finished the Danskin Triathlon in 2 hours and 25 minutes which is pretty good for my first time. Actually, I had a great trip and Sally, who is the spokesperson for the entire Danskin Triathlon series, was an inspiration. She was there at the start line and at the finish -- and I know she checked my time because she had emailed me before I was even home from the event! Thanks to Sally and also, many special thanks to author Susan Kane who had a lovely dinner the night before for myself and several trainers and execs from Heart Zones. With 4,000 women competing, it was a pretty awesome weekend. (Plus, nothing much can describe the true sense of accomplishment I felt when I came up the beach from the swim and saw I was only a minute off my best training time.)
We'll have more news and commentary as we go, but for the first post catching up, we thought everyone needed an update. Here's to a break in the heat -- and better blogging!
