    • Yes! But in the last 5 days, I’ve hosted Thanksgiving for 10 people, put in more than 6 hours of training, and had Coach Irondad and soon-to-do-her-first-tri stepmom staying with me. So I haven’t had time to post. I’ll get there. 🙂

      • Sorry was not trying to pressure, just miss the good old days when you had more time for posting. Sounds like you have had your hands very full this holiday season. I wish you the best.
