Catching up and Getting Ready for Weather!

on October 2, 2018

Okay, who hit the fast forward button?! October. Stop it.

I literally have not idea where the last 6 weeks went. It is like they zoomed by and I am freaking out a little.

We have had a TON of things going on around here….so this is kind of a Phone Photo Drop.

Brooke has been LOVING homeschooling. Me, too. Her group met up for some fishing a couple weeks ago and it was awesome! Someone even caught a fish!! (And the crayfish were a crowd favorite as well!).

Spent some time at the park….we are in full Fall mode over here!


There was a lot of zucchini bread consumed this summer…the garden was a success!!


Unfortunately, our dry and windy conditions over the summer have seen fires pop up all over. We have been lucky with wind direction and the smoke has not been much of a problem for us.


Some pretty stellar clouds…just saying.


The wind has made for some awesome kite flying (not so great when you are trying to stain your house on an extension ladder!).


It started dropping below freezing at night so we moved our tomato plant to the shop (hanging upside down!). It just keeps giving us great tomatoes!!


Science is her favorite.


With a side of tea parties. This was my date.


She has ridden outside more than me lately.


She is not mad about it!



Officially embracing the ranch style for Church. Either that or I am aiming for Rodeo Queen next year ๐Ÿ˜‰


Getting SOOOOO close to being done staining.


Spent the weekend supporting a group of cyclists pre-riding our race course for next year! The long course is about 141 miles. It was a long day on Saturday, but everyone had a BLAST! We love our cycling community!


Our forecast is trying to make up for all of the lack of water this summer!


We are taking advantage by getting our Play-doh-ing on! I love her creative mind!


I HAVE been working out! Some days it is really hard to fit it in (and then I try to get up at 5:30 to do it before Brooke is up!) but it is happening. I am not really training for anything this Fall, but have BIG plans for next year!! There will be both bike races and running races. (This summer was very house-project centered for me). I look forward to all of my bikes and a lot of trail miles on foot!

Currently, I am doing a lot more running than riding. This is mainly because of lack of time and it is faster to get in a good running workout ๐Ÿ˜‰ Last week I was at 20 miles of running with a little bit of trainer time. Just working on building miles and letting my body get used to the stress again.ย  Aiming for a 50 mile running race next Summer….better start now ๐Ÿ˜‰

Weights have also made their way into my life (now that I am done moving gravel ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). I aim for 3x per week. Brooke LOVES joining me for this. I try to do them on days where I run longer or harder so that I get real “easier” days surrounding them.

Now that the weather is getting chillier and we will be inside more…(maybe!?) you should see more of me!

I promise I have more exciting things to say ๐Ÿ˜‰

*Took Fall pics of Brooke (okay, maybe I am just excited about those).

*I am trying zero-drop Altra trail runners (I will let you know how I feel about it!).

*Ski season is coming!!

*In a couple of weeks we will officially launch our Summer 2019 Gravel Cycling Race! It is going to be BIG. You can find us at or like us on Instagram…SBTGRVLย  (A good amount of my time is going to working on this-hence radio silence).

Hope you are having a great Fall and taking some time for some leaf peeping! We are in the peak of our change right now and it is off the charts gorgeous!!!

Until next time!

      Hi, Lindsay! No snow yet! We have it in the forecast though ๐Ÿ™‚ And that’s awesome! It is going to be a gorgeous race. There will be a 37 mile, 100 mile and 141 mile option so it opens it up to everyone!

    • LeeAnn says:

      Lindsay, did you end up making it to Steamboat in October?? I lost that whole month! I want to hear all about it if you did!!

      • Lindsay says:

        Hi LeeAnn, unfortunately got WAY too crazy for me to get out of town … BUT I have booked my time off for February so that I can get some skiing in this season. My parents are still in Steamboat today … they just finished the work they were doing on our condo and plan to head east tomorrow as long as the snow clears up a bit! I wouldn’t have come to town without letting you know! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • LeeAnn says:

        Gotcha! I hoped that I didnt miss you!! Awesome for February! We have passes this year so we are looking forward to hitting the mountain. Bring on the snow! Looks like the weather is clearing up. Safe travels to your parents!
