baby blue birthday

Well it happened I turned 29 and I got a lot of tri goodies in my favorite color no less :)

It started almost a full week early when Kyle brought home baby blue shoes laces.

Kyle put a brand new chain on my bike (I think it still had the original one for 2+ years ago on).

I got new smaller aero pads for my bike - now I have room for my hands on the bars when climbing.

And the biggest surprise was that Kyle got me a pair of newton running shoes and his Dad got me a baby blue sugoi running skirt to match.

Last but not least my super Mom gave me the registration fee so I could sign up for Ironman Coeur d'Alene 2010.

The best part was that Kyle and I went over to Coeur d'Alene to cheer for all our team mates and friends that were doing the race this year. We stayed in Spokane with some family friends who spoiled us rotten with good food and lots of cake. And on Sunday we spent the day cheering on all our friends in the race. As is the case with Ironman races it was an inspiring and motivating day of racing and the most perfect way to spend my birthday weekend. So with that let the countdown begin to my big 30 and my second Ironman race! Bring on the training :D

Thanks Jill. Sept 27th is probably to close to the nike marathon for me :( I have been thinking I may do the half though.
