Because the important moments in life just don’t fit in a status update! I started this blog when I was training for my first ½ Ironman, (70.3 miles) to record what I hoped would be growth and progress but ended up being a huge learning experience. Although fitness is one of the key ingredients to a happy life, it certainly isn't the only ingredient. My blog has evolved to document growth, progress and setbacks in other areas too. From my surprise proposal in Rome and wedding in the fall of 2013, to Mom's devastating stage IV cancer diagnosis and death 2 weeks after I found out I was pregnant. Who knows what shape it will take, but thanks for being along for the ride.

For the next 2 weeks I am going to focus on my swimming. I'm a little worried that my swim distance was substantially lower this month...but, happy that my total mileage still increased. So did my speed. I went 7 miles farther this month, but it took me 30 minutes less!! And, when compared to January the improvement in speed is really noticeable: I went 21 miles more this month but it took me 3 hours and 15 minutes less!!!
