Mr. and Mrs. Macca

Don't we make a cute couple? This was taken yesterday at the Memphis in May triathlon. Macca (aka Chris McCormack, the second place finisher at the Ironman World Championships last year) won the race; I placed 27th out of 77 in my age group. No, I was not burning up the roads, but I had a blast, AND I got to meet Macca. He is so damn cute!!! Here he is starting his run:

And here I am starting my run:
Wish I could say those pictures were taken one right after the other, but no.

Sorry I've been gone so long from blogland. I have been BUSY. I ended up passing my personal trainer exam and can now put NSCA-CPT behind my name. Yippee! I needed a 70 and I scored an 84, so I was very happy. Needless to say, I've added personal training to my schedule. That, training my triathlon club at the Y to do their very first race next Monday, teaching cycling classes, being Hayden's mom, and doing my own Ironman training keeps me off the computer quite a bit. But I love it and it's totally what I'm meant to do, so I can't complain. I do fall asleep VERY quickly at night, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

And now, a knitting picture:

This is a section of the Moderne Log Cabin Blanket (out of Mason Dixon Knitting, of course) that I'm doing for a friend whose wife passed away almost a month ago. I'm loving it, although it's about to get too big to travel with me. I'm using Cotton Classic. I'm not a good color person so I had Liberty at my LYS help me pick out something masculine, soothing and neutral, and this combination of browns and greens is what we came up with. I'm not a brown and green person, but I do love these colors together. DH likes it so much that he wants me to make one for us when I'm done with this one. I've decided that I really like to log cabin - simple enough that I can put down at any given moment, but interesting enough not to bore me to tears. I'm on block 5 of 9. I'm hoping that I won't take as long as some people I've read have.

Macca! He's so cute and funny! He came to one of our tri club meetings a few years ago and everyone ate him up! Congrats on your certification!
