It's never too late to be what you might have been. --George Eliot

Athena is the Goddess of wisdom and war. In 2005, I declared war on my own bad tendencies: sloth, being fat, compacency, and being too old for adventure. This is the story of how I went from being someone who never stood when she could sit, to being an ultrarunner, marathoner, and triathlete. Along the way I've cried, laughed, fallen, gotten up, lost, won, hallucinated, been dehydrated, DNF'ed, and been DFL.
I also swear. Alot.

Iron relaxation.

After our morning bike ride Sweet Baboo and I power napped, ate, sat in the hot tub, and then ate some more. Then we slept about 7 or 8 hours. There's some serious relaxing afoot here at Cordy Lane.

It's worth noting that the sun comes up here pretty early this far north of the equator. I wake up with the sun blazing in through the windows
Blink. Blink.
What the hell--is that the sun? What time is it? 4:45???

So this morning we found a fantastic trail next to the lake--through the woods, all twisty turny and shaded and stuff. I did about a 5K run and now, of course, I'm eating again. Surprisingly, I've been able to stay within my weight watchers point for the week. This despite the fact that I eat when I'm bored AND weight watching does not consider acute anxiety to be any form of exercise. (They never seen my anxious freak-outs, apparently.)

SW TriGal and her beloved H arrived yesterday and she was able to snap one of the rare pictures of Sweet Baboo and I without sunglasses. Enjoy!

    BTW I dodn't know that about WW - if freakouts don't earn points then I'm never going back

  5. Beautiful picture! I'm sending good mojo starting now because it may take a while to get from NC to Idaho! Enjoy your race! (Well - you know what I mean.)
