|I don't care what anyone says.....mai tais are the best way to start offseason.|
|After a week of just OK sunsets, the day after the race finally brought a great sunset to Kona.|
|Ouch. Just ouch. Kids....don't try this at home! You can tell where I put on the sunscreen and where I thought I was already covered.|
|My beautiful girls!!|
|I really had no idea I booked a plane this small. So small they couldn't fit my bike. Hmmmmm.....UPS Cargo took care of that little problem!|
|A good day playing in the waves - asleep before dessert!|
|Where's the next wave?|
So what have I been doing since arriving back in Colorado? There's been a bit of this and that but for the most part the answer is.....not much. I swam once more in the ocean before leaving Hawaii and haven't been in the water since. My dog is VERY happy since we've been going on lots of walks together. I even went for a little jog - twice. My bike is patiently waiting for me but, well, it just hasn't happened yet.
|No purpose of this sunset picture here. Just love looking at it.|
|Another sunset picture.|
My closet is waiting to be cleared out and I have all of my garage/bike/run stuff to go through at some point. Basically cleaning up the remnants of the 2011 season and getting my life back in order. But I am relaxed. I am happy. I am NOT stressed about NOT working out. I am doing the things I want to do when I want to do them. There is no compulsion. No anxiety. I think that for the first time in years, I am actually enjoying an offseason!
Of course, all things come to an end and 2012 planning is in the works!! And, my daughter reminded me the other night.....mommy, if you keep eating candy corn and drinking wine you won't race fast next year. Dang, that coming from my 6 year old. Off season will come to an end soon. But not until I finish that bag of candy corn:)
