You guys rock!

So I took a mini break from blogging on accident but in the meantime I was still checking out you all's posts. There is so much good stuff out there! I just wanted to high light a couple of the posts that I LOVED. I hope neither of you are offended if I put links to your pages on mine, please let me know if you are. By the way, both of the pictures below are from their websites respectively.

Benson from Montana wrote a post at the beginning of March about bottled water. Who knew that "bottled water costs 1,000 times more than tap water"? He also had some super interesting info on the health standards imposed on tap water that is not regulated with the bottled variety. I am not sure where that info came from but I dug it. Click on his name above to jump right to that post.

The Dread Pirate Rackham wrote a post also at the beginning of March called "training with 5 year olds". It was a fantastic post about being a mom and a triathlete and it really showed what a wonderful mom she is. My husband and I don't have any children at this point and as I watch many of my friends enter into that chapter of their lives it is a little scary to think of how much life changes. It is a little hard for me not to be bitter about the fact that when I am pregnant I probably won't be out training for the local marathon, or doing 1:15 hundreds in the pool, or hammering on my bike until I feel like my quads can't take it and my heart is going to jump out of my chest, while my husband is doing all of those things. But then I think about how that will sort of be my own personal training event and after reading Pirate's post that life does go on and teaching your children to do what they love while taking care of yourself is reward in itself. Thanks Pirate!

So there are two of the posts that have kept me thinking. Hope you enjoy them and all the other blogs you read whether they are about triathlon or anything else for that matter.

Hey, glad you're back and survived Vegas. Great job keeping up and ramping up the training. Here's hoping for good outdoor riding weather real soon.
Thanks for the plug.
