on my way ...

trailrunnerbikerJune 1, 2012

First stop is tonight with DD. We had a girl's outing and she took me to her fave place for my FIRST EVER mani/pedi ! I had to look up what that meant when ya'll posted about it here on another thread :) Had no idea. Wow...it was so fun. But the woman had to work to get the calluses off of these 61 yr old feet..let me tell you ! It was amazing. Chair massages and leg massages and oil on everything . I swear my shoes are bigger now :) Wish I had done this years ago. Of course DD said " I TOLD you so " . Smart girl. She is my heart.

Had my hair cut yesterday in my pre-ride style too. Actually have kept it like this since last year. Will need it again in 3 weeks so look out Canada.

OK...will update as I go along with crazy stories and pics. If you get bored just let me know and I will try and do something exciting and fun LOL.

Have a great time and I hope you enjoy your trip. Starting from where I live ( or a ferry ride further) and biking across my country to the other coast is truly amazing and I don't mind telling you daunting. I won't even drive it!

Remember, July 1st is our party so I hope you enjoy it.

Wow, I love your hair. Wish I could get away with that but my hair is too floppy.

I love a mani/pedi, but I don't like when men do it. I go to a salon that has only women operators.

Love the color of your toes. Do you know the name of the polish?

Happy, Trail, to you!

irish : thank you for the compliment...I do have a LOT of hair :) I loved the massages...had never done it before so didn't know what to expect. It was great.

ded: DD says " oh no ! we forgot to look at the name !"...you can tell I am all about the nail salon experience LOL ! Will let you know the color when I go back in Sept. And I agree DD had a guy and he was not nearly as good. Thank you for the sweet compliment.

nancy: how lovely to say that. Thank you ! I appreciate it. My DD made my day I can tell you. What a precious gal she is...will be 30 in Oct. hard to believe my baby is so grown.

jab: you bet ! Biking really does the legs good :) Thank you !

Trail, you're my shero. I love that you are living your life 100% and loving it and that is a terrific role model for anyone!

I'm turning 55 in August, and thinking about how and what I want to be as I transition to the next stage of life. I truly hope I find both my passion and my peace as you seem to have in yours.

Godspeed and good luck. Looking forward to hearing about this adventure too.

I love opportunities where our children can teach us.... good for you for being open to it. I think it makes them feel do good to be in that role with us.

Have a wonderful adventure....!

I confess I have never had a mani/pedi either, cooper bailey! I NEED one but have never had one! My running shoes store guys tell me that calluses are there to protect runners' feet and should be left alone. They don't look pretty but I sure don't want any problems when I run!

Happy trails, trailrunner! May the wind always be behind you and all the hills downward!

Have a fantastic time!

I just finished my third half this morning, and was inspired by all the women I saw in the race that were about your age. I hope I am still running (and maybe biking!) 20 years from now when I'm your age. You look fantastic. I can only hope I look and feel the way you do when I'm in my 60s.

Can't wait to hear about your travels!

mitch: you are too kind !! Thank you . I will start a new post in a bit.

rip...what a sweet and moving post. Thank you . I feel all the good vibes from my friends here and it really keeps me going. I have my "devils" but I keep forging ahead. One pedal turn at a time.

stinky : thank you for the compliments ! I like the idea of the ripples moving and making a small difference even though I can't see it. What a kind thing to say. thank you again.

bestyears: my DD is an inspiration to me. She has made so many strides in her life against a lot of negatives at the beginning. She is someone I heartily admire.

sis : thank you ! I am hoping for some sizable tail winds !

folk : a BABE is it ??! You are a treat ...thank you. I have a lot of living to do it seems. Will try to live up to these great compliments.

rose: thankyou !

four kids : congratulations. You are certainly doing great ! I am sure you will have lots of success in your future races .

faron: babe again !! You guys are too good to me !! Thank you !! I hope to have a good tail wind for sure.
