Take Time Tuesday

Live Half Full
Yay, it's time to be grateful again. Despite the kind of crap week I had, I still have much to be thankful for.

Maybe the best $8 I spent last week
First, special thanks to the genius who invented these waterproof transparent films. They're the perfect fix for my CrossFit injury and hold long enough for me to get in a long swim workout.

Thanks to Alyssa for putting up with my bike breakdown (the first one) and walking with me to our cars, drive to the bike shop and then refuel with Mexican food. And also for the super sweet silicone swim cap. I'm going to get spoiled with these fancy swim caps.

I'm also thankful that I'm fit enough that it was no big deal to bike the 15 miles home last week when I had to take my car into the shop.

And a special thank you to the stranger that picked me up while I was pushing my bike down a road without a sidewalk in the heat of the afternoon in cycle shoes. And thanks for actually taking me to the bike shop rather than an underground dungeon. Thanks, dude.
And thanks to my biggest cheerleader, Jenny, for this trainer
And thanks to Fort2Base for keeping me on the team for three years to help promote and grow this fantastic event. Through this job, I learned about social media, managing teams and working with brands.
And got some sweet swag
Also, my garden makes me smile every day. Thanks little patch of earth for providing delicious tomatoes and basil day after day.
Bruschetta, anyone?
Don't judge.

Those geniuses at Taco Bell also give me something to be thankful for. After the 2013 Fort2Base Race Sunday, I debated what I really wanted to eat to celebrate. When I stopped at a rest stop that had a TB and I saw the advertisements, I was totally sold. The firey Doritos taco is where it's at. Best post-race treat ever.

What are you thankful for this week?
