Finally An Update

I always think about things to update with, and then I get too busy.

After my last post, Madison had her first volleyball game. They won in two games. Turns out she is one of the setters. She still needs to work on her serves, but the team as a whole played really well for only practicing a few days as a team. Her next game is the 25th.

And I finally got back to the pool to get in some swim time. I'm feeling a little slow, but that's what happens when you don't really swim all summer. I swam again this week as well. Maybe I'm finally getting in a routine.

I also took my tri-bike in for a tune up. After you ride for a while, your cables stretch and then the bike doesn't shift smoothly. Mine was having major problems with shifting on the rear cassette, so I took it in. I got it back last Thursday, but thanks to Ike, it was too windy to ride outside this weekend. I rode tonight, and now I can't shift the front cassette from the small ring to the big ring at all. Uggghhh!! I may have to take it back in. I also got a new pair of running shoes and my feet are much happier. I had way too many miles on my old ones.

And speaking of Ike, we were far enough away that all we got was a lot of strong wind. But we didn't even get any rain from it. I have relatives in Houston, however, and they all lost power and some trees, but no major damage or flooding. Thank goodness.

Other than that, life is just busy.

...don't know how you do it!! Run, swim, bike... it amazes me!

I need to have my husband tune my work bike....it won't go into the big crank up front and I need that for the downhills!

My 1/2 is in 3 weeks and I don't have a free weekend! Yikes!

Hi,
I just found you on Krisit's blog (through the comments). I noticed because your name was running girl. I just started running in June. Anyway i clicked over here and just wanted to say I really like your blog. I hope to run some races someday and find reading about yours inspiring.

P.S I don't know Kristi but have been reading her blog for awhile now. I was so sad to read today's post. Breaks my heart.

I wouldn't know how to shift gears on one of those bikes if you paid me. well, maybe depending on the amount I might figure it out.

New shoes too! Good luck on your swimming. That's one thing I love still.

Congratulations to Madison! I love watching girls volleyball.
