Merry Christmas from Phoenix


Christmas in Phoenix...oh its good.

Did you have a good Christmas? We stayed in town this year not traveling to Ohio due to our recent trip to South America and although we missed our families, it was really nice to relax and just do nothing.

Sorry my blogs have been MIA, but you know, holiday eating was very time consuming. I will return to the Incan trail at some point soon. Besides eating, I have also been distracted because (and this is NOT to brag to all you people in cold weather places -- at least not a lot) but the weather has been really nice and i have been biking quite a bit. I am in training now for the 24 Hours of Old Pueblo where I am riding on a 4 person women's team. Somehow, the other three women I am riding with are super fast and guess what, I am not, so I am trying to remedy that by riding a lot and getting fit.

This past weekend Angel and I spent some time on Trail 100 in the Phoenix Mountain range where we wanted to ride the entire length of the trail. The day was so amazingly beautiful with 65 degree sunny weather and the trail crisp trail due to recent rains. We took our time, road a lot of extra loops, got lost and road some extra ridges, and then road around town for a total of about four hours on the bikes before meeting our friends at Chueys to scarf some major calories.

We stopped for a lot of photo ops which required many takes because neither of us is that good at sports photography. If it looks fun, its because it was.












**UGGHHH. For whatever reason, Internet Explorer make things on my blog look like crap so if you have a choice, pick Mozilla Firefox for best viewing.
