I'm so lucky to have both a week with my family in such an amazing spot, and an opportunity to get one more solid week of triathlon training in before the craziness of back-to-school begins. And with Moosehead Lake and Mt. Kineo as the backdrop to our days here? It's crazy pretty.
Reed convinced the guy at the neighboring house to teach him how to fish. It was amazing how patiently he waited and waited and waited. I prayed to the Dear Lord to please let Reed catch a fish.

We've had pancakes and bacon, beers and happy hour every evening, and desserts every night. Good thing I'm burning some calories. Here's what I've gotten in so far this week:
I got to ride with my sister. When do I ever get to ride with my sister? Never.
I've had one hot/ dehydrated 6.7 mile run that kind of sucked. Except for the part when I ripped off my shoes, shirt, and garmin and plunged right into the cold lake. Oh, yeah.
Today I rode another 20 miles on my bike; it looks like this the whole way.
I always breathe to my right, so I keep the kayak on my right and every time I breathed today, I saw the bright yellow kayak popping against the dark sky with my brother in the back and my son in the front and dramatic clouds in the sky. It's just the coolest thing.
So, I'm getting the workouts done, but still. Putting it all together into a 70.3 mile race? Totally overwhelming.
Meanwhile, I'll focus on the happy hours and desserts. Wish you all were here!
