Edit: I woke up this morning to the updates from Boston. I’m thinking of everyone, especially the police officers, in Watertown and Boston searching for  the second suspect.

The season may have actually changed to spring! We’ve had our first week of above zero temperatures. Our snow is melting. And I went for my first outside ride of the season yesterday! It was pretty cold and windy but so worth it!

I’m using my cyclocross bike for now since there is a ton of gravel on the roads.
(Edited to say there’s snow/rain mix in the forecast for the weekend! Hopefully it’ll disappear as quickly as it comes! Back to the trainer…)

I finally chopped my hair.


I loved it long since I could put it in a ponytail and not one piece would fall out when I ran or biked. But, I had short hair envy for a couple years. The short hair definitely wins for swimming! I just have a little bump under my swim cap now instead of a big mound.

I got a new road bike!


It’s a Giant Avail Advanced SL1. Here’s what their website says about it: “The all-new Avail Advanced SL is engineered for the ultimate ride. Designed with Liv/giant’s 3F philosophy, it’s the most advanced composite bike built specifically for women.

The coolest part is the Di2 electronic shifting technology. And, I think it’s really pretty! (That’s just as important as all the other stuff…)

I can’t wait to take it out on the roads!

Lastly, Kelly and I went for a nice run together a couple days ago! My ankle/heel/foot is doing better. I still haven’t gone past five miles and am hesitant to try. But, I’m running a little and that’s what matters! {Knock on wood so I can keep it up!}

Since I haven’t been running much and Kelly’s pretty focussed on biking, we hadn’t ran together in quite a while. It was so great to just run, together, with no Garmin, and enjoy the sunshine.

It’s been a tough week. Happy Friday!

What are some changes in your world?
