Hey y'all. Just a few things I wanted to tell you.
In case you missed it yesterday, read up on the giveaway for the Fulfill your Year e-course with the amazing Kelly Dahl. We are accepting comments to enter the giveaway until Friday at noon.
1. I turned on the comment moderation tool on the blog, which means only that I approve the comment before it's published. I did this because my association with a certain local celebrity has increased the traffic to the blog by quite a bit. (And I thought it was me that you loved). I noticed that when some of you are commenting you must think that something went wrong because you are sending the comment several times. No worries... it just sometimes takes me an hour or so before I get the email and then it will show up. I love your comments so keep them coming.
2. I figured out my life! I mean, I know what I want to train for in 2013! It came to me in a flash this weekend and I called my friend Suzanne immediately as if it were an emergency and I needed to know right that second if she was on board so we could train together. I want to train for a Century Ride (100 mile bike ride) and complete it this summer. Suzanne said YES! I thought the century ride is a perfect solution because I'm not feeling pulled to marathon-ing right now, but I want something that is big and a little intimidating and most importantly, will define my quads. And it means I get hours on the road with my girl Suz. Win win win. (You think you share a lot when you are running with someone? Try biking 50 miles side by side. We covered every single topic.)
We are thinking of doing the Maine Lobster 100 mile Ride in July. Anyone done this one before?
And so, dear family, I would like cool new bike jerseys for my birthday, because we know looking cute while training for something is 75% of the battle.
3. The Clean Food Challenge (CFC) is a week-long cleanse I have done and blogged about several times. It is a week drinking a gallon of water a day and eating only whole foods, no meat, no dairy, no gluten, no soy, no sugar, no alcohol, no processed anything. Remember, it gives you clean sweat and makes you feel sparkly? It really does.
I am going to work on creating a section of the blog (a tab at the top) that includes all the instructions and blog posts about the CFC so that if any of you want to access it at any point you can do so more easily. I will also host a CFC challenge in February if anyone wants to join. Get your juicers ready.
