My good friend Erin is marrying a great guy, David, today! So we’re off to Muir Beach to participate in what will be a beautiful ceremony on the sands surrounded by friends and family who love them to pieces.
Yesterday I had the chance to ride with Anke the super dressage trainer. She’s back from her Olympic duties in Hong Kong and is helping me and Now Voyager get back on track.
We did A LOT of trotting over poles on the ground. These basically trick Now Voyager into picking up his hooves and carrying himself more. So then I can feel when his hooves are coming off the ground and start to understand when to push him forward with my leg.
And a big thank you to my friend Paula who is also riding Now Voyager a few days a week. He’s a different horse (much improved) each time she rides him so I gotta get the inside scoop on what magic she’s working.
My world of triathlete bloggers is all coalescing into one big happy family. I love that! Turns out Sarah’s Triathlon Adventure knows my amazing open water swim coach Morgan Filler – they used to swim together in Berkeley. And then Sarah pointed me to Looking for A Better Hobby, also known as Tawny, the amazing woman who just swam 21 miles from Catalina to San Pedro…with Morgan in a kayak by her side! Isn’t that the coolest circle ever? Go Tawny!!!
Carb Confession wise – let’s see. Yesterday I was good until dinner when I chowed down on a few snacks made of some kind of dough. I think they’re called empanadas. Whatever, they were YUMMY! But I did stay away from crackers, chips and bread in its raw form. Which is good!
Ok, I gotta go buy a slip for this little number I’m wearing tonight at the wedding. Gee, I didn’t use to be so last minute. Guess I just have too many fun things to do these days to ever willingly walk into a mall!
