News!

Well, not only have I been taking time off from training, I have also been taking time off from blogging!  And not because there's nothing going on - there is plenty going on!  I've just been taking the past couple of weeks to sit on my couch, do some 2011 planning, think about training and then not training, having fun with the "training" that I'm doing, reading, cooking, and trying not to eat every cookie that I come in contact with!

One of the fun things?  Yep, changed the look of my blog....whaddya think?  See, I like to change things around every once in awhile and since I never change my hair, this blog gets a bit of attention.  So, with the help of PIC, this is what we came up with.  And, since pink is my signature color (can anyone name the movie that line is from?), well.....there you have it.

But more than the visual change, there is a very important new look.....on the sponsor side! I will be racing for the 2011 KompetitiveEdge team!!  This is a local swim and tri gear shop that carries the absolute best gear and is very customer-oriented.  They have created a team of 12 this year and I am incredibly excited to be part of this team and representing KompetitiveEdge and TYR!!  I've already met a few of my new teamies and they are amazing and talented.  Even though I'm pretty sure I am now the KE grandma.  This is quite simply a fantastic opportunity and even better?  PIC has made the change too!


The sad part for me is that I am leaving behind a fantastic team in Trakkers.  The people that I have called my teamies and friends for the last year!  I will continue to cyber-stalk these peeps and support and cheer for them in all they do, and hopefully they will do the same:)!  It turns out that green is now one of my favorite colors (but not a real green dress that's cruel.....anyone name the song?)!!  And, of course, I am looking forward to racing another Rev3 event in the future.

But the countdown to "official" training is on.  January 1st I'll be back at it.  Until then?  FUN!  Tomorrow's fun?  I'm finally heading to the hills to enjoy all of that snow that has been falling on the slopes (but has thankfully missed Denver).

Congrats on the new sponsor, though we will miss you on Trakkers!! Hope I can see you guys somewhere along the way!! Love the Steel Magnolias and Barenaked Ladies references!! "If I had a million dollars, we wouldn't have to eat Kraft dinner, but we would!"

Congrats Michelle- I'm looking forward to hearing about your upcoming season and KoNA training! :)

Sounds like you're having a great off-season! I'm jealous of you and anyone hitting the slopes right now, but my big belly won't allow it. It's been so warm here lately, we're afraid all our snow's going to melt! Has it been like that there too?

Anyway, congrats on the new team, it sounds awesome! I'm excited for you for next year! :)

Oh, and I knew he second quote was Barenaked Ladies (loved it!), but didn't know the first one.

I'll miss having you and Sonja racing in green, but hopefully our paths will cross someday soon.

Until then, I'll just have to settle for stalking you online.

Kelly said...
