Pinata Breaking Time...

I'm officially between training sessions to bust a pinata (not really) but I do have news.... coach gave me the GREEN LIGHT to return to Ironman Cozumel! This mornings ride was filled with Mexican memories. My run is now lingering, I'll tackle it after I take a time out to tell you how excited I am, I'M SO EXCITED! Mambo number 5!! I mean Ironman number 5 this year, the reason Im so stoked on it, (other than the fact I love Mexico), is that it will mark my 10th Ironman hoooorah! Double digits, you know how happy that makes a kid feel to turn two full hands, I feel like that. Then a proper recovery session will be on the program and 2010 season will be in put in the scrap books, memories, and photo albums.
This race fits so ideal for this momma too. It happens to fall on the week Kainoa is at his dads (Thanksgiving with his pops this year too), that leaves me able to work without worry. He will be safely scarfing down turkey while I'm chowing down gels and salts!
This week is already smoother than last week. Training again, (still really minimal as it's more or less recovery style), having Kainoa home, and once again having a goal-I love goals. I've also taken on a Christmas project, more on that later. And we did our Halloween costume shopping! I LOVE this time of year, holidays are here! Everyone seems to be in a good mood, the air is cooling off a little (by Hawaii standards that is), and all the fun recipe books are out. This morning was pumpkin smoothies! After school Kainoa has begged to make pumpkin cookies (it's our tradition every Halloween time). Holidays are amazing with a child, they get so excited that it makes you so excited and they never forget traditions that you began just a year or 2 ago...
Thankfully packing for Mexico will be easy. ha ha.... that beach cracked me up last year and sadly as the bike course zoomed past it there was not a person on the beach! I could use a laugh mid 112 miles. Alright, that run is calling my name...

that is a great shot of you on bike. So glad you got to do this race as it seems to mean a lot too you.

I know what you mean about traditions taking hold so quickly with the little one.
I'll go stand naked on that beach as you go buy, if you think it will help. Trust me, what you will see WILL make you laugh!

Holy smokes. You've done half of all your ironmans in the last year?! That is insane Bree! I'm pumped to have another chance to follow you online and cheer you on from my living room.

Hope the ribs are feeling better!

Horray for pumpkin cookies and naked beach time!
