Wishing I was back on a warm island...

John made fun of me wearing my swim cap with my bikini...ok, so I am a dork.

Houston has been socked with snow, fog, and thunder storms since I have returned from Cozumel. There has only been one day of sunshine and I am really needing another day of sun before I head to an area of the country that is famed for cloud cover and rain. Please Santa, all I want is sunshine and warm days.

So with that, here are the wonderful memories of being back in the sun on the island that are keeping the sunshine in my heart.

I am a BIMBO!

One mighty big iguana.

The Mayan ruins at San Gervasio.

Speed Racer and I were mosquito food again out here, but we learned a lot.

San Gervasio was where young women would make a pilgrimage to for fertility and marriages.

Speedy and Johnny Tri at the awards ceremony.

My Celeb/Pro sighting, Bree Wee!!!

Fun on the beach!

Ahh, Coronas!

The sunburn lines may have faded by now, but the memories are still fresh...

This is how John and I felt after this race....but we would do it again in a heart beat.

I could not have asked for a better experience with such good old and new friends. I think Santa already gave me my gift. I really don't know what more I could ask for. I have not had the Ironman blues and after a talk with my coach I am excited about what the next 12-week block of training has in store for me. More about that later!

Have a great day,

I love the obligatory Cornona photo. Such a great memory and accomplishment.

So will you be back in 2010?

LMAO a that rhino pic! Man, those Coronas look so tasty.

I love your pics! The rhino pic looks like something my husband and son would do! I can't wait to hear about your 12-week plans!

Sarah and I got to visit San Gervasio a year ago too!! She actually fell down at some fertility alter and cut her hand. So there was a "blood letting" at the alter. We're not pregnant yet... ha!!

Cool you got to meet Bree!!
