Where's Coach???

Well, I am back in H-town for now. I needed a well deserved break from training, cleaning house, work, and blogging. Here is what I was up to while I was away...
I made a lot of pumpkin bread to give to teachers, coaches, and neighbors for Thanksgiving...

I made candied citrus peel for my kid to take to school for Colonial Day...

I sewed up a costume and a nifty tri-cornered hat for my kid to wear for Colonial Day...

I worked on my knitting and crochet...

I read the entire Twilight series of books and a few others to boot...

I hung out with relatives and went and saw the holiday lights in the town square in New Braunfuls, TX...

and I put in one 11 mile run "Turkey Trot" on Thanksgiving morning in the hill country of central Texas to make up for the stuff I would eat later that day.

I am back to work, back to training, and back to eating clean. Buddy is back to school and hopefully El Esposo will be back from his two and a half week work trip to the Dominican Republic on Friday so we can attend his office Christmas Party. Yeah, he was stuck at a 5 star resort in the Dominican Republic forced to play golf for Thanksgiving. What a shame...

The big news is that the countdown has started! I have 365 days until Ironman Cozumel!!! This time next year I will be finished with the race, purchasing FINISHER's gear, and laying on the beach. Whoo Hoo!!! This is going to be a fun year for training.

I hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving.

Later Gators!

I love baked goods like oxygen. I drooled all over my keyboard when I saw that first pic. If those pumpkin breads were baked at my house, they'd never leave.
Yummy.
Have a great training year to IM Coz.

You have been busy, Liz! I love how you can see your bikes on one of the pics. LOL!
The pumpkin bread looks delish!

I am so excited to follow you though your training journey for Cozumel :-D
