Runner. Mother. Writer (kind of). I don't know, but I am trying to figure it out.

 

I was looking Trek bikes today. They have last years model for a good price…and my dad knows the owner which meant another $100 off. 

I think it’s the 7.2 FX. Probably should have paid more attention. I’m pretty sure this is it: http://trekbicyclestores.com/m/product/13trek-7.2-fx-wsd-173478-1.htm  

He’s holding it until tomorrow. My parents can bring it up in May when they visit, so it should work out well if I buy this one.

I went to the bike shop today and tried out some bikes.

Does anyone have a suggestion? I’m thinking triathlons up to a half ironman. So moderate to heavy use, I’d say. What brands and features do you like or recommend?

Any suggestions are welcome!

danagoesthedistance thank you! I’ll think of that every time someone compliments my eye, which are probably my favorite feature.

breatherunlive we do look so much alike. I think it’s really neat to look at old pictures of me and seeing her. It’s great seeing my grandpa through the years. I’m glad you liked them too!

It’s almost Thursday. I’m counting it.

My grandpa at his wedding. Such a cheeky expression. Him dancing with my mom at my parents wedding. Him holding me as a baby.

Everyone says andie looks just like me.

I’ve enjoyed looking at the photos. My family catalogued over the years. My cousins births, marriages, children…we’ve gotten closer as we’ve gotten older. It’s been infinitely better coming home than I expected.

My cousins daughter runs. She’s almost. 15…I think I talked her and my cousin in to the Dallas half in December. Yay!

It’s been a long day. I’ve eaten so much today as everyone has been so generous with dishes. I should sleep better tonight.

Using grammar to deflect from real feelings…

This annoys me. Because it’s inconsistent between “do’s” and “don’ts”. Though I don’t really have a good solution because “dos and don’ts” seems most correct but “dos” looks funny to me too. 

Mostly I really want a nap. It’s been a long day. The visitation last night and the funeral, burial and lunch today…and I couldn’t sleep well last night. I’m stating with my grandma to help her as much as she’ll let me.

I feel so grown up right now.

Thank you everyone. I made it home…now to face the visitation and funeral.

And my mother.

The latter being the most stress inducing. So glad I packed lots of running clothes. I’ll need them.

It’s probably not normal to cry at the airport…but I already really miss my family.

And I haven’t even left yet.

I’m flying back home to Illinois.  The flight isn’t very long but I’ll need something to pass the time at home anyway.
