    Musings: #GaneebanTris – Week 2

    …and fails! Not really fails, but damn humbled by the latest #TriTuesdayTraining for sure. But first, let’s get talking about post workout #1. Putting the bike in my car and getting it out is so damn annoying. Thankfully, J has been super helpful in doing this, even in the rain. Each time I have to put down the seats and remove the cover, then awkwardly scrape myself and my car, by trying to thrust the bike in there without getting it caught somewhere. Definitely a case of first world problems. Thankfully, I have a blog I can whine about these things. After the first training, I asked a few questions from…

However, after that random day in September of 2013 that I stepped foot into Midtown, I haven’t looked for a ‘box’!Midtown has everything I need and will ever really need. But, the lure of Crossfit has always been on my mind. I follow the IG-famous Crossfitters, I know some of the terminology (thanks, Midtown), and I appreciate the sport. I just was never actually a part of it. Until yesterday. J’s good friends L & S have been going to Crossfit Envy for a…

    Rose & Thorn [46]

    I’m Yessss, it’s Monday! Marathon Monday, deserves a quick shout out! Rose: Family and friends, por vida! Thorn: Nothing really at all…does a stiff right ankle, that’s been annoying, count? Yup, you read that right. This week is going to be the BEST ever. Only three days of working and two fun events that I am so giddy, giddy gum drop excited for! Friday Off to go pick up our fave little girl, we didn’t have many plans. We did have to run a few errands for the weekend birthday parties we were attending, so we did that to kill a little time in Folsom. I was having a serious…
