Back at it

Last weekends season opener seems like a blur. Besides the awful blisters from all the sand running, recovery went smoothly. My best friend just had a baby boy and I've been dying to see him. So I took off for Arizona! He is now 6 weeks and adorable beyond words.  AHHHHHHHHHHH, Crazy! It was love at first sight. Seriously missing the little dude right now. We got in some serious cuddle time though.
 Mom clearly has him on the right track in life! Study hard Cole ;)

On Sat. morning I had to sneak out the door without seeing Cole first. Once I laid my eyes on him I couldn't say goodbye. And there was some exploring to do.The best part-only one stop light. The worst part-the streets were loaded with debris. Ok, let me define what I mean by debris: dead bobcat, mice, 2x4's, glass galore, nails and tacks, and how can I forget to mention the mattress. Seriously, Phoenix!?!?!?!
The last time I biked through Tonto Nat'l Park was miserable. It was early 2006 and the first ride on my original P3. 12 hours after the bike was built Lance and I headed out for a pre-ironman ride. It was the most uncomfortable 100 mile ride ever. I was a sad excuse for a cyclist back then!
Needless to say this time I was lovin' my ride, and as a result enjoyed the scenery way more...
After 4 hours I really wanted to take a dip in the river! 85, sunny, light winds. Perfect day for exploring!
Before I left today I hit up South Mountain for a KILLER trail run. I'll post those pics tomorrow.
I miss you Colester!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
