Too much distraction in the office today so I came home to work for the rest of the day. So nice to have this flexibility.
How is YOUR day going??? xoxo J

1. Work is nuts and I am the boss so of course, all the responsibility ends up on my desk (going in early, staying late). We are doing a total overhaul of our organization which is both fun and kindof unnerving at the same time. Lots of learning, to say the least!
2. Training is full ON. Training for Ironman is no small feat. It requires many hours of training and I am putting in a minimum of 18- 20 hours per week of training (not including Yoga and core/weights). In fact, this weekend alone I rode 340km on my bike in 2 days!! What fun. Actually it WAS and I got some sun too (see the hint of a tan on my face? :)
3. Stylish outfits have been secondary. I have been grabbing on the run (this is a fashionista's PROBLEM!!!) Unless I think out an outfit the night before, I usually grab my clothes at 5am when I get up and then hit the pool for my 6am (4 day per week) 1.5 hour swims. I also usually have MAJOR goggle marks under my eyes not not very photo worthy!!
Life is GREAT though. I am getting very lean, toned and fast. Good because I have some big race goals this season. I love training. The race is like the icing. I train for the training itself and the race is just a way to gage my speed and strength. Love it. Anyway, thats it for today. I need new clothes. Thats the next thing on the list.
Miss you all. xoxo Jodi

Tangent: our cats breath reaks! We have given her herbal remedies and even tried brushing her teeth with special stuff (THAT should have been video-taped let me tell you!).
Anyway to today I am home early because I get to take the beloved to the Cat Clinic for a check up. Little does SHE know. This will be fun. Imagine me driving with fur floating everywhere in the car and an unhappy cat sitting on my shoulder. I will report the event after the fact! Wish me luck!!
AND what about the spring weather you ask? Well apparently we are not getting any this year. Today still felt like a winter day. YES I am still wearing winter clothes!!

Exciting news is that I found a new commuter bike. After being in Beijing and seeing all the great bikes there I thought I wanted to get something cool since it was time to replace my old mountainbike hybrid anyway. I just found this Dutch bike and it is so awesome!! I love it!! It feels really strange riding upright when I am used to being in such an agressive low position on my carbon fibre cervelo triathlon bike. It is totally fun to ride and in fact I was just getting home from the market when I got my man to snap these photos.
Anyway, I fully plan on getting back into the ol outfit posts since you guys keep me honest and creative!! and LOOK, my hair is getting LONG!! Thats also been fun.
Okay. long post, but I missed you!! MWAH xoxo Jodi
