I'm Alive!

Wow, how three months can fly.

In May, I had my bachelorette party...



The following weekend, I PRed the Geist Half Marathon...


In June, Ryan and I got married!






Immediately following the wedding, we took our honeymoon in Mexico...





 We returned from our honeymoon in July, and only a week later, we bought a house...


Two days after that, I told my work that I want to go part-time. I'm going to use the extra time to focus on my growing photography business...


Overall, It's been a whirlwind of a summer to say the least.

Oh... but you want me to talk about triathlons, don't you?! Well, I haven't done any. In fact... I haven't even been training much. I did my first swim last week, and did my first bike ride today. I have my first race, the Chicago Triathlon, at the end of August. Thankfully, I'm doing to sprint, and not the Olympic (which almost killed me last year).

My weight is holding steady for now. I gained (no joke) 8 pounds during our wedding and honeymoon. Ouch! But I lost a few when we returned, and now I'm back on the Weight Watchers wagon... aiming for that elusive 140. I only have 11 pounds to go.

Hopefully I'll be back soon! I'm still reading everyone elses' blogs religiously!
