Last week by the numbers

1-   son graduated from high school
Zach, Josh, stepbrothers girlfriend, stepbrother Mikey and stepbrother Jesse
5 give or take -  times I cried at graduation
1 give or take – times I tear up daily
43 – hilly miles ridden
1 – times I fell over on above ride
2 – times I’ve fallen over on my bike this year. Yes I’ve been riding for a few years
I all ways wonder just how accurate these are.
5702feet or 1728ms– the number it says I climbed on the BT elevation profile. BDD or someone, maybe you can explain these numbers to me...
0 –  time I swam
1bazillion – times I have coughed over the last week
139 – number of pictures we took to get 4 decent ones of me and the boys. 

7 – hilly  miles Josh and I ran / walked together Monday morning.
14.47 – pace of said run/walk including potty stops, horse petting stops, and coughing fits by one or the other of us, regardless of how slow it is we did not however stop to take a nap. 
10 – times I told Josh to just go ahead without me
10 – times he said it was all good 
 1 – son that now has a purple mohawk
Looks a little different doesn't he?
18- days until the Denver Century. I’m pretty sure this will be cut to either 85 miles or maybe even 62.
26- days until Josh leaves for bootcamp
46 – days until my first tri- I better start swimming

I'm getting choked up just at the thought of you getting choked up; I know how hard it is to see your baby move away. You raised him well!! Now, as for the Mohawk kid, that's another story!! ;)

How fun you and your son went for a (long!) run together. Pace doesn't matter on those types of runs! Something you will laminate in your memory bank forever :).

43 hilly miles is great! Let's go for a ride when I get back...I need some bike work, bad!!

((hugs))

5700 ft of climbing?!?! I am gonna die this August. :/

You are one tough lady on a bicycle!

Julie said...

You know Duckie I'm sure I'm reading that wrong...I think its actually the 1700 number...but as I said I don't really get it...nor know how accurate. But it was quite a lot of climbing!

Love the family pics!!! Hope you didn't get hurt falling off the bike...?

Diana said...

What fun! Love the family photos. I can't even get my son out of his room, let alone pose with his "parents"!

Pace is over-rated. I always average out between 12-13 and really don't care. I'm at least out there and not hanging out on the couch. We do what we can....

You look so pretty in the graduation photos--that must be so amazing. Will and Ruth's preschool had a pre-K "graduation," but it was really just a big party--no crying for me. I'm saving that for the big day 13 years from now when I'm standing in your spot. I can't imagine having a child headed to bootcamp.

Climbing=good!

Great pictures!

I am doing the Denver Century and was thinking of going down in mileage as well. Let's ride together!

Oh, I don't know how I'll deal when High school graduation comes along. I was getting teary when I attended a kindergarten orientation this week.

I know I will fall over on my bike again. I try not to be too cocky, because if I am, I'll fall over in that moment, I'm sure.
