I am catching up on my Christmas blogging today. I'm going to have 3 posts in one day! Unprecedented productivity.
Christmas is all about tradition and one of my favorites is breakfast with my high school friends on Christmas Eve. Elizabeth comes from Portland, Laura comes from Chicago and Maysoun comes from New York City.
Boys are allowed at breakfast, too. (Eliz's husband, John, is absent. He was flying in that later that day):Last year's Christmas Eve breakfast discussions about my adventure racing led to Maysoun and Laura coming out to Phoenix to do the Women's Adventure Race with me in April. (Blog post here.) Discussions at this year's breakfast led to an activity plan for 2010. Last year we did my thing, next year we are going to do Laura's thing...biking! Actually it's more her husband Chris' thing, but we're going with it. In September, Maysoun and I are going to Chicago to ride in the Apple Cider Century with Laura and Chris. (Website here.) Chris even convinced Pat to do it! I'm not sure if we're going to do the full 100 miles. It seems to me that there would not be enough daylight for me to finish 100 miles...perhaps the 50, 65 or 72 mile options might be better choices. We'll see as the ride gets closer. I'm already looking forward to seeing them again!
