Its been a busy few weeks! Starting with a trip to Spain with my daughter and the Wantagh High School band, my older daughter's 16th birthday, family over for the birthday and the track nationals, a devastating Nor'easter that took down a big tree in my backyard (still working on the cleanup!), St. Patrick's day, cramming at work to meet a software implementation deadline, my younger daughter's 12th birthday yesterday, more yard cleanup this whole weekend, etc., etc.

Squeezing in workouts as much as possible. Have done a couple of longer runs over the past two weeks, two 16-milers and a 10-miler, but the LI Marathon is fast approaching. I have a mental goal to do at least one 20-miler before the actual marathon. Just a few weeks left to try!

My cycling has taken the biggest hit! In Spain, I could run. In the rain, I could run. Its just harder for things just need to fall into place for a ride. But, it looks like today is the day. Just finished my routine pre-ride breakfast (oatmeal and coffee) and about to head out for a ride! Not going to be the "blissful" 70F and sunny conditions that some of my riding buddies have enjoyed this past week but I'm going for it in shorts anyway!
