Month In Review: September

Oh boy, what a month.

This was one busy, exciting and crazy month and it shows in the numbers. Due to the trip to New York and Germany, I was missing several workouts. But, you can't go full steam all year long. While the timing for a slacker month might not have been perfect (with still one triathlon lined up), that's life and in general, I am good with that.... In general... Even though the ride today felt pretty crappy, but that's for another post.

I really want to try to catch up on my posts, but since I am not very regular in the posting department these days, let's just have a quick look at the highlights of the month, after the New York Trip and Tour de Paws.

Like winning the Open Category at the Western North Carolina Swim Challenge 3K race.... 1st out of 1 in my division and 42nd out of 42 overall. Yes, that's right, I was dead last out of the water.... I still take the medal though! ;-)

The following week, I headed out for a short trip to Germany for my Dad's 70. (!!!) birthday. I just went for a week and that was wayyyyyy to short. Because of that, I didn't do much other than spending as much time as possible with my parents. Hopefully, I can get them convinced to come visit next year... In the meanwhile, I also got to hang out with my little doggy brother Paul.... Very cute and quite a handful.

After celebrating my Dad's big day, I came back just in time to celebrate my own birthday. This cake was from my co-workers and was very tasty. Which brings me to my poor nutrition in the month of September... I know, you are all tired of that tune, but I really have to get back on the bandwagon. STAT.

Oh and speaking of birthday.

That's my birthday (Christmas, Easter, Anniversary) present from my most fantastic husband. It's a Trek Speed Concept 7.0 and I love it so far.... It's so shiny and pretty!!!

And that was my September in a nutshell.

Hopefully, I'll get back into more regular updates and more into reading and commenting again.
