never thought this would be me

I used to get so aggro at people who just went away for long periods of time without blogging and now I am one of them. Wow I suck. Come to find out, opening up your own business takes up alot of time and energy. Things are going well at the studio and I am now finally able to pass on some classes to other instructors which gives me a more normal schedule, but when I am not there, I am at home still dealing with the phone calls, emails, and the occasional ass bag who calls to yell at me. Fun stuff.

In the meantime Bri and I have bought a house. Well we bought a plot of land that will eventually be a house and we are super excited to do it and will hopefully have a place to live come summer time. Its all good though.

I have to be honest. I have MAJOR triathlon envy. I am so jealous of my old teammates in SD who are about to head back to Hawaii for the lavaman, and ESPECIALLY for those who are going to get to train for a full ironman with the TEAM in New Zealand. I think that is probably the only way I would do a full IM is if it was with the support and guidance of the my TEAM.

In the meantime there was a small triathlon added to the area in Nahant. It is on the anniversary of my mom's passing so its a must. Since its a sprint tri and I have never done a mini TRI I am going to try to get some people to train with. The idea kicking around now is to field it out to some of my clients to see if they are interested. The only problem is I need a pool to train at and am PETRIFIED of masters classes because everytime I went in SD people got aggro with me cause I was too slow. Hey it takes a long time to pull these long lanky arms through the water!!!

I am hoping that if I get going training and set up a schedule of events to train for that I will start to feel a little more normal.

I do miss sharing some ridiculous life stories so here are a few:
-my husband who will remain nameless came home the other day and had an egg on his head. apparently he was in the shower and experienced an "aggressive sneeze" and slammed his head against the wall. WOW

-driving home after a super long day the other night I was in the left lane at a red light when an MBTA bus decided I was too close to him to make a right hand turn, but instead of waiting for the green light he instead honked at me before driving into my buggy and ripping off the right side of my car. Oh and then he made his turn and kept going. It was awesome. I think my car hates me at this point, first she is covered in snow every other day, then covered in soot from all the crap on the ground and now she is covered in black white and yellow from MBTA's finest!

So if I still have any readers left I apologize for going MIA and cannot guarantee I will be any good with this but I will try!

I really am a terrible blogger as of late. Come to find out opening your own business makes one extremely busy. The funny thing about the New Year is it causes you to look back at the year and take it all in for all its guts and glory. This year had a whole lot of ups, and some fun downs that make you want to throw your arms up and pretend you are on a rollercoaster.

One things for sure I did not think we would be back on the east coast this year but life happens and you gotta ROLL WITH IT!

Highlights of 2010:
-Began with the Rose Bowl with our friends and cheering O-H-I-O to a victory (sorry bri).
-shortly thereafter we started many swims in the pacific ocean training for the Lavaman tri.
-training in general was a blast, i had bri by my side for this one and so many fun teammates and an unreal coach from whom i learned so many lessons from.
-in march we got to go to Hawaii and race together and again raise a ton of money for the LLS. We also got to race along and then get extremely intoxicated with world class triathletes.
-then a bunch of weddings happened, which meant alot of travelling.
-the stress of all that hit me and resulted in some stomach "issues" and my first colonoscopy also known as "the coolest shit i ever took." and a day spent high as a kite. Luckily everything the dr's thought was not true and since then I have been ALOT better (no more poopy stories for ya folks!)
-had my first primetime debut on network television but was TOTALLY jipped but still fun nonetheless.
-shortly after we made the decision to move back east and to start my own business. which meant ROAD TRIP!

I guess in just a year it was quite alot. A welcomed change that I am so thankful for. And now here we are ringing in 1-1-11 with snow on the ground, living across the street from our old place and just a slight headache because I could not indulge too much last night because I have to get to the studio to teach some pilates classes. WHAT?!?!? seriously life is too much! Life is funny you just never know what the day will bring you, let alone a WHOLE YEAR! Here is to a New Year. May it bring everyone the peace and change they wish and hope for.

2011 or bust!
