The Peleton

Talia and me - smiles all the way
No one looks good in lycra, do they?  As a point of reference, Talia is 5'8" and weighs 135.  Ah well, that is certainly not the point, is it - look at those smiles.  We are having the time of our lives.  When this photo was taken, Talia was traveling uncharted distances - she was biking farther than she ever had before.  And we are scheduled to push her PR even farther next weekend. 

This is what exercise should look like - it should be a pleasure.  I want to continue to look forward to it! 

There is a downside, however.  Two cycling buddies took bad falls this past weekend.  One suffered a concussion and a broken collar bone and the other four broken ribs. 

Take good care of yourself.  Be kind to others.  Find a way of living that brings joy.



  1. Boy, do I love this photo. I imagine you gliding along like a bird in flight; and I must say, you both look fantastic in that gear. Ironwomen :)

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! Good luck next weekend. BTW~ you look like a pro. Like a female Lance doping now, my dear :)

    Glad you checked in!

  3. You both look amazing - Lycra, in this case, IS y'all's friend! Love the happy smiles and the pure enjoyment!!!

  4. What does it actually mean? To look "good"? You look freaking fabulous from where I sit....

  5. Great to see you gals smiling :) The things we do in life should make us happy and smile! :)

  6. Great photo and congrats on losing so much weight!

    To answer your question -- yes, some people look good in spandex. They are the greyhound cyclists like the Tour de France guys!! :)

    (I do NOT look good in spandex.)

    1. Hi Lisa - thanks for stopping by and commenting - I've marked your blog and look forward to getting to know you! I need some inspiration these days :-)


We'll try this for a while.
