What’s up?

I did it! I completed my first century — 100 miles on a bike — on Saturday, and finished in 7 hours and 29 minutes. It is much better than I thought I would do. I originally thought I would finish in 10 hours since I haven’t had much time to train beyond my swim class two evenings a week and the occasional Jillian Michaels video.

And while my body was fatigued, I didn’t feel sore afterwards. Here’s what I looked like the day after, hanging out with DH, Erika and Tyler, which by the way, we have not gotten together like this since having children!

My next century is here in Berkeley in May. This one will be tougher in that I will have 10,000 feet of climbing as opposed to 5,900 in Solvang this weekend. Can’t wait!

What did I miss in the news? What’s up with you?
