Summer Love

I am in the middle of a perfect summer weekend . . . the kind of weekend that makes you realize summer is going way too fast, but makes you wish summer could stick around forever.

I started off yesterday by getting up early and heading to the pool (the beer worked!). But the gal who opens the pool during the summer was a no show. So I talked one of my swimming friends and her son into heading into the beach for an early morning open water swim. It was gorgeous, swimming in the sunrise. The rest of the day was spent golfing with my hubby and Sophie, and then hanging out at a friend's pool.

This morning, I went down to the Chisago Lakes tri course and did a practice bike and run - 22 mile bike, 3 mile run on the tri course. It was awesome. I am hopped up on triathlon like Sophie gets hopped up on popsicles. I came home and relaxed while Sophie napped, then we went to a BBQ and then hubby and I had a date night golfing with friends.

One more weekend day left! In keeping with my perfect summer weekend, I'm planning a great workout (long run) and then some fun. If only I didn't have to go back to work . . .

Hi Heather,
It sounds like you are having a great weekend! I am so proud of you for not only getting the practice bike ride in but for getting your butt out in the open water for a swim! You are going to do so good at this Tri:)

I hate Sundays....I know that I am back to work tomorrow and I am not ready for it:) Happy Sunday!
