Oh no you didn't!!!

Hey guys yes I am still here. I was humbled the other day though. I was running and I thought I was doing okay and this little skinny 85-90 pound chic and I met on the trail by the cedar hills golf course and at the time we were running the same pace and I thought okay kick it in and well needless to say she did and she freakin kick my trash. She ran probably a whole minute faster than me. When we approached the hill, the last climb, I couldn't find her she had lost me literally in her dust. I came home so pissed off that I got schooled by her. I thought she looked the way my Dez will when she grows up and I had to laugh thinking I just got rocked by my daugthter. I do hope that one day Dez will kick my but. So I tried to tell myself that I haven't been getting enough sleep and that I was at the end of my long run and she was doing a tempo run, you know what ever it takes to make me feel better about myself, but the truth is we all can improve. I shared it with my kids and they laughed. They think it is funny when I get the trash kicked out of me. We build each other up so well.

Thanks for the good laugh this am Nikki. That's too funny.

I had just the opposite happen to me on Tuesday, only on the bike.

I am training for a century bike ride that I will ride with my husband next month and I needed to get 20 miles in. So, I rode my bike to Novell and just as I was about to cross the freeway overpass just south of Wal-Mart, a man pulled out on to the road. Well, I thought that maybe we could help each other out so I booked it and came up along side him. He didn't do much so I passed him. When you're on a bike, it is nice to ride with someone because you can share the workload by drafting off each other. Well, the jerk had a great ride in to Novell. He never pulled ahead of me the rest of the ride. Every time I would look back, he was on my tail. So, I worked hard while he coasted for 6 miles...

Needless to say, I was pissed.

All I know is that you and Sarah are still my heroes! Everytime I feel like I can't run and I'm running in concrete shoes, I think of how hard you two push yourselves and it gets me over that hump. You are amazing.
