Winter motivation

Holidays are over people.  Time to get moving.  If you are like me, a month of great food, cold weather and the flu has had us inside and the stir crazy has set in.

I am ready for some waves this weekend.   Yes, the water temp is 56F and the air is 36F.  We have surfed in worse for sure.  Last year one of the contests had water temps of 49 degrees with air temps about the same.  With fog.  Ouch.  In this picture, she was so cold she could hardly move.


Excuses aside, it is time to lace up our shoes, dust off our bikes and grab our boards.

I have been going through pictures of when I was racing to get myself motivated for competition season 2015.




This one makes me cringe because I am about 7 lbs heavier now and my luv handles are giving me grief.  Seriously.  The surgery I had last spring has really done a number on my abs and I have middle age gut.  Ugh.   I need to get out of my post flu fog, off my hind end and clock some serious miles to get anywhere near this point again.  I am not sure it is even possible at this stage of life but I will give it a try.


For this, I think a giveaway is in order.   I haven’t done one in ages and want to share the love and one of my favorite pieces of running, cycling, surfing, heck anything gear…my Headsweats hat.  Everyone is always asking where I got my hat (because good gravy I have one on every day….my uniform). These things are part of my every day wardrobe.  I wake up, throw on a hat and start my day.  To me, hands down, there is no other hat that comes close to the quality of these and you know I have put them to the test.  They stay put in heavy wind at the beach, keep the sun off my face and cool my head down on the hottest and longest of runs.

You want one of these?  Okay, I am giving one away randomly via comments.  You pick the color.  Post a comment about what motivates you after the holidays to get moving and active again for the New Year.  Tell me your pain.  But, you know my motto….no whining.

And remember….

The only easy day was yesterday.
