I am sitting at my computer listening to, well, nothing. It is quiet and it sounds pretty good right now. The holidays blew in and blew out in a burst of activity that has left me tired yet glowing with the family time spent together, the defining of goals for the upcoming year and the general sense of rebirth as a new year opens on the heels of a pretty good year overall. I know I will feel reborn as soon as I clean up the mess that was left in the house from all the great family time spent together. How do so many water glasses end up in one child’s room? How does toothpaste end up on walls? Is hanging up a towel a crime?
So, I thought I would start on the right foot and bring you up to date since I am removing my maid uniform and donning my Love, Sweat & Gears kit. First off we have a new rider joining our team. Dina Hannah, rider extraordinaire, will be our newest member. Dina attended high school in Colorado and is currently living, working, and training her ever loving brains out in Salt Lake City, UT. We are so excited to welcome her to our team and feel she will be an added boost to achieve our goal. Read all about Dina and her accomplishments under our “Meet the Team” tab.
Our co-crew chiefs, Joe and Bill, have been hard at work finalizing our crew, reviewing the route and coming up with time goals for each Time Station. The team has been training, fundraising, and chasing the many details and logistics of an adventure of this magnitude. All of us have been squeezing in jobs, family, and downtime (whatever that is) to maintain a balance (whatever that is). Balance. Hmmm. I have a feeling that is probably a topic of a blog all by itself.
In the very minute lull that is happening post-holidays and full throttle training, we are refreshing, refocusing, and rebooting to embark on the adventure of a lifetime while leaving what we hope is a legacy for not only ourselves but for the many, many people touched by the work done through LiveWell. As training and details become draining over the next several months, we will remind ourselves of the reasons we took this leap and know that every great goal entails a whole lotta effort. Effort we are ready to embrace.
We are hoping to keep our blog alive with our activities and thoughts. Get to know each of us. Send in your comments. Be our friend on Facebook. Send us fantastic mojo. Donate an RV. Wait, what? Help us smile across the miles. Most importantly, stay tuned. We are on a roll and the bells are quiet. Go TEAM!
