Well, it sure has been a hot minute, huh? Sorry about that! Life has been crazy! And also I’ve been living without internet for the past 2 weeks—the horror!

So what has been going on? Well, I have had some major cycling fever-I am just obsessed! Seriously, I cannot get enough of the Tour de France. Those guys are incredible. It is really unbelievable what they are capable of. It is getting me super motivated to ride…honestly I just can’t get enough of the long rides! Seriously, all I want to do is ride my bike. Last week I did a 60 mile ride (+ open water swim) with the Pittsburgh Tri Club and then later in the week I went out with some other friends (who are amazing cyclists and kicking my butt) for a 50 mile ride. It was awesome, we even found an alpaca farm…how random!

And whenever I am not riding, I am wishing that I was riding! Especially when I am running—but then again when I’m running I’m usually wishing that I was doing ANYTHING besides running. I am making such huge progress in my swimming too. I did an open water swim in the Allegheny River last night where I did 2100 yards…thats even further than the Olympic swim so that gave me some confidence. There were a few times that I started to freak out a little bit but I was able to calm myself down. So lets hope that my next Tri has a better swim experience than my first!

The only exiting news right now is that I moved into a new apartment today and I LOVE IT. It’s amazing. I especially love my room, it’s super cute. Here are the highlights:

Any How I Met Your Mother fans out there? I have Barney’s Awesomeness Poster: “When I get sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead. True story.”

Of course I have my race wall up to keep me motivated:

And my newest addition is my medal holder from www.goneforarun.com

I love it!

So that’s that! Gearing up for Pittsburgh Oly on July 31. I can’t wait!
