Hi friends! Happy New Year!
I want to thank everyone for all of the love that was delivered around the Bravo post. I was so excited and surprised to be included in their list fitness gurus to follow. Definitely check out the other four bloggers on that list, there are some pros on there.
I am back from a 12 day trip to Colombia. We hopped around the country, visiting cities, small towns and beaches. Unsurprisingly, Matt and I had an active trip, and I’ll fill you in on some of the fitness highlights over the next few days. But first, for our regularly scheduled week – well two weeks- in review.
I’m pretty excited to share my duathlon experience, which I’ve been referring to in my head as “2Chainz,” you’ll see why soon.
I spent most of Saturday horizontal on the couch nursing a cold. Sunday morning, amped on Mucinex, I took my bike (and Matthew) to Central Park to ride two loops of the park for the first time ever.
It’s a strange activity for someone who spent most of the weekend trying to take it easy. But I’m training for something. What? Yup! I haven’t mentioned it here because I’m a little intimidated by it.
Last Saturday I rode my bike from my apartment on the West Side, through Central Park and then all the way down Park Avenue to the Brooklyn Bridge. And back.
How was I able to do that? Because I am a biking goddess! And because the NYC DOT closes Park Avenue to car traffic from 7am to 1pm the first three Saturdays in August in a festival called Summer Streets.
