I did not fall off the face of the Earth.
I did manage to plan a wedding, get married, complete two graduate courses, continue to do my job and submit my application to get my doctorate and take a honeymoon trip. You get it. I was busy.
Now it's back to training with Vineman 70.3 as our goal. I spent a lot of time yesterday trying to incorporate enough training time into my schedule along with all the business travel I need to do. Then I spent some time creating a really nice training calendar to hang on the fridge. I had the calendar professionally printed and everything. Long, long ago I worked as a graphic artist and visuals are important to me. More than loving a good visual, I believe it's really important to write down the goal and the steps to get there. There's something about putting your goals on paper that takes them from dreams to plans.
Just so you don't think I was lying about the wedding - here's a photo of Steve and I. Right between the wedding and reception, we went down to the beach for the sunset. I'm so happy we have these photos.
