A Good Day

My birthday involved training, friends, cake, relaxing and the beach. I think I covered it all.

Cactus garden on the cliffs.

Perfect weather.

Beach with Steven!!

My mom made me a chocolate mocha cake. There are 35 chocolate covered espresso beans on top and one green candle. It was most excellent.

And a fun new training toy - a lime green power meter. Happy girl. Can't wait to get it on the new QR and do some work! But first I'm off for a run . . . hope everyone had a great weekend.

That is an amazing cake -- it looks bigger than your head (which is the minimum size a cake should be, btw)

Happy Belated B-day!! You don't look 35 at all!! That is what triathlon does to you though. It ages people well. I hope you had a great run. ;)
