|My post-race dudes, Thanksgiving morning|
Last year, I was totally out of my league on a cruiser ride with four adventure guys on a bitter cold Thanksgiving morning. My toes froze, my upper body overheated, and it was the best start to Thanksgiving I've had in years.
This year, Hot Husband ran a 5k with Tiger Boy. He surprised himself with a fast time, and Tiger Boy's daily practice of running a 3k paid off. I came home with two mellow, hungry dudes. We fried a turkey, sipped coffee by the river, enjoyed good friends and reveled in the luxury of Hot Husband's four-day weekend.
I started today with a killer yoga class and soon moved to milking the neighbor's cow, having a killer breakfast and playing Killer Bunnies with the dudes. Afternoon activities include a hike and possibly a ride on my new/used bike.
Life is good.
After a year of unknown and upheaval, we are in a beautiful place.
My family is healthy.
I've found a great new winter activity in yoga and a great studio where I can get stronger, gently.
I'm finding the courage to move forward into new adventures.
I am so grateful for the chance that exercise has given me, a 40-something mom, to get out out of my head and have a powerful body.
