Just got back from a natural hoof care clinic in Washington, and had a great time. I learned alot and got to do some fun stuff with Dottie....

In other news, my diet has been slacking so I better shape up for the sprint triathlon end of this month! Or it's gonna be a sad day :(

Get Out!

Had an awesome day out in the beautiful sun...first hiked around and over Tubbs Hill with Jarod and my mom, then got home and loaded up the bikes and headed off to ride the trails of the Coeur d'Alene. It was about a 15 mile ride or so, and it was sooo gorgeous! 

Breakfast: curried cashews & blackberries
Lunch: Blackened ahi salad (from the beacon)
Dinner: Italian meatball salad (from chaio mambo)

I am on a total salad kick, last night was the rasberry vinegarette (from moontime) been eating out more than usual because my mom is in town, and we've been out and about. Try these salads if you go to any of these restaurants, they are really tasty! NO CROUTONS THOUGH!

Congrats to Luis for getting some on his first marathon in LA!! A smoking time of 3:34 too!
