Three Quick Things Thursday


1. Rain rain rain rain. That's all it is doing these days in Vermont. When I woke up Thursday morning it wasn't raining so I jumped on my bike and took a relaxing morning ride before I was needed elsewhere.  I didn't hurry.  I just appreciated the ride, the temps, the sun and the scenery.  Bliss.


2. This was posted on Facebook.  I love it!  It's perfect and I like to think at least partially fits me.  I have people telling me all the time they wouldn't ride their bike in the road or run where I do or whatever..... Yes, you can live life as safely as possible but is it a life worth living?  I am not doing crazy things but I do need to step outside the lines to find my happiness.  I have loved the road my fitness journey takes me on, which definitely takes me outside of my comfort zone at times.


3.  I read a book today.  The whole book.  One of the many reasons I love summer!  I know at least a couple of you are wondering what the book was. It's the new book by Elin Hildebrand, Beautiful Day.  
I enjoyed it a ton.  And I just finished the new book by Nora Roberts.  Perfect summer reading.  I can hardly wait to pick out my next book.

Glad you got a ride in between all the rain. You certainly read a lot, something we all should do.

It rains here everyday...but I don't care. Good thing too because I'm not as hard core as you.

Love the sign! Thanks for sharing it!

I love that sign too. Had me laughing and I can tell you that not many things do that at 4:30am.

Love that "journey" quote :) You are definitely one of those women who seems to live life fully and to be enjoying the ride!! Thanks for giving us the title of your books...I always love a good book!

Love the saying!. Endurance sports definitely makes us feel alive. I don't tell my wife about people dying on the swim in triathlons but when she hears about it or reads about it I tell her I'm going to die of something, some day. Might as well be doing something I love doing outside vs. old age in a home.

I wish I could read a book all day! In the summer holidays I have less time to myself as the kids are off school.

I'm glad we are done with the rain for the next 2 weeks. The forecast is pretty good.

I have a vacation in August and I have ordered some new books. I often read more during Summer because I sit outside a lot and like to read then. Since the weather is improving, there will be more reading the next couple of weeks.
