Mo Tab Inspriation

SOOOO – yesterday we my friend L.N., my husband, and I were driving home from seeing the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in concert here, I was sharing about my recent post….ya know, the part about how I said I would to a triathlon…but didn’t. Remember?  WELL – it seems as though there is a women’s only triathlon in July (won’t be here this year) 2014.  Hubby recruited my friend and I – so, the goal is July 2014 I’ll do my first triathlon 🙂

Picked up my currencies today. CHF, super pretty bills.  I’m sure there are laws somewhere prohibiting photos of money – so just google it.  One of the prettiest monies out there.  Random note – have to get a “European wallet”..my little USian wallet is too short for the extra tall European money!

The choir – small army.  Loved the concert, loved Come Thou Fount.  Sure, 10 years ago I probably would have thought this choir to be an “old people’s choir” – but I’ve changed that perspective.  They’re a disciplined, well-oiled machine and their dedication shows through their performance.  I teared up as they stood and sang their first song. Tears came again as they sang Come Thou Fount (my wedding march and a dear hymn) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPw7-QniaDQ is a video of it, but super more fantastic in person 🙂

 

long time

SOOOO – it’s been a year and a half!  What has happened…I really never finished my trip to Italy in Summer 2011..but it was fun and I made lasting friendships..hence my return March 2012!  And THAT, dear friends, leads me to NOW!

Scott and I celebrated 10 years this past March *woot woot*  Some days it seems like yesterday..others…whoa, am i cut out for eternity?  It’s definitely not easy, but I know it’ll be worth it 🙂

This past May (though not a triathlon and 18 months later) I completed my first half marathon.  Started off with me ripping my bib off my race belt – Scott teased me about being a rookie the whole time.  No photos are logged because my bib wasn’t visible to log my photos 😦  Also, completion was not a record of a time, my dear husband got a leg cramp after about 1-2 miles..so we walked it in 3 hours…and…50 minutes 🙂  However, my time didn’t log – for all we know, I set a world record!!!

After that, I stopped – pretty much all – gym going.  Didn’t shed an ounce this entire time either…so that’s moderately…majorly (nothing moderate about it!) frustrating. BUT, I figure…my lungs are probably healthier!

Well, June 1 rolls around and we take part in our second mud run, Warrior Dash. Totally fun, totally uphill!! http://www.warriordashphoto.com/ click Butler, OH Saturday and bib # 9969  Don’t know how long the link will be available, so good luck!

Anyway, there’ s more – I  shall log later!! My darling husband is competing in Ironman Zurich http://ironmanzurich.com/ – his first full Ironman – – why not be crazy and make it a destination!

You’re caught up.

Blessings to you and yours.
