Happy New Year!

It's time to get this show on the road! I've taken quite a big break and it's time to get the year started. I've been building a steady base. I've picked MY ONE WORD (more on that to come). Goals have been made. I've already done a triathlon!

It was a new year's day bash hosted by Sami Winter. We met at her home in Wrightsville Beach, lugging indoor trainers, bikes and gear upstairs to her 1200 square foot home. Sixteen of us squeezed in the kitchen, den and porch and rode our bikes. We did 16 x 1 minute hard efforts. We eased off the bike and hit the road. I did 2 x 16 minutes (see the trend here?)  around the loop with Sami and Erin. Then, we transitioned to the beach and on the count of three, we rushed the waves and I did about 16 seconds in the Atlantic. My very first polar plunge!

 Brave Souls. It was colder on the beach than it was in the water.

Here we go..........

You can start me up
You can start me up I'll never stop
I've been running hot
You got me just about to blow my top
You can start me up, you can start me up,
I'll never stop, never stop, never stop, never stop
You can start me up
Kick on the starter, give it all you've got
I can't compete
With the riders in the other heats
If you rough it up
If you like it you can slide it up, slide it up
Slide it up, slide it up
Don't make a grown man cry
Don't make a grown man cry
Don't make a grown man cry
My eyes dilate, my lips go green
My hands are greasy, she's a mean, mean machine
Start it up
Ride like the wind, at double speed
I'll take you places that you've never, never seen
Tough me up
Never stop, never stop
