What the hell is Ditch the Tiara?

Redefining the word beautiful...one dirty, sweaty, bruised up mile at a time, with a few downward dogs along the way...

A "just what I needed" kind of day...

Ah, Sunday... I look forward to this day so much.  At least during Ironman training because Saturdays consist of our biggest workout of the week and Sundays are there to catch us when we are inevitably ready to fall.  We're tired.  We're hungry.  We're ready to wind down the week and so Sunday is our day of baby workouts (usually), lots of eating and living a semi-normal life, if only for a day.  OH and my new thing is baking cupcakes on Sundays from scratch.  This week's flavor was Pumpkin Spice with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting.  DELICIOUS! 

I headed out late morning for a 21 mile tempo ride.  The weather was gorgeous and I managed to maintain an 18mph pace.  It was windy but it felt good.  The kind of wind that makes you stronger but doesn't break you down. 

Not sure what the rest of the day holds but I am definitely looking forward to it.  Thank you Sunday.  Thank you Cupcakes.
