This week may have given me a couple challenges in keeping that stride going, though. That's all well and good, and everything played out with a happy ending. Besides, a few obstacles just make the journey more interesting and the finish more satisfying.
At least that's the story I'm going with.
Before I share the details, welcome to the Weekly Run Down!
Anyways, here's what went down this week in my little world of Florida fitness:
In other news:
Friday Fashion Flair. It was kind of a neutral day, with the pewter and khaki, so a pop of color was most necessary. Most know I love my bright colors, so I can handle an occasional "neutral" palette as long as I can add a punch of pink to it. How about you? Got a favorite color you add to a neutral outfit, or do you just let the neutrals hold their own?
Oh does it feel good to be back on a real set of wheels! We brought our son's mountain bike here, and recently added a second bike to keep here in Florida. The green bike has been christened with the name Flo, and the red bike has been named Rider. Get the significance...Flo and Rider? (huge thanks to my gal at Birchwood Pie Project for the suggestion!)
Lastly, a nice little feel-good moment happened the other day. The people from the Quad Cities Marathon noticed I was wearing my QC biking jersey (from Thursday's ride) and gave me a shout on Instagram. I didn't even tag them or mention their name, so the fact that they spotted it on their own was especially nice. The QC Marathon was my first 26.2, and I was blessed with a great experience...glad the karma has continued!
So, that's the story of my week. A few twists and turns never hurt no one, right? Just keep smiling through the grit and embrace each day.
How were things in your world this week? Any phantom aches or pains to deal with? Any racing, in person or virtual?
