Top Five Tuesday

This week’s edition of my Top Five for Tuesday will be my Top Five things I’d like to so before I die. Some are possible, some may be impossible.

5. Skydiving- I’d like to take the adventure to the high road, and jump out of a plane. I think it would just be a big rush, fun and overall a fantastic experience.

4. Travel to Space- Now this may be impossible, but I’m still  young you never know what will happen in the next 10-20-30 years. Maybe their will be a way to travel to Space, and I would sure be number one on the list. I have always been fascinated with space, and would love to see Earth from a different view.

3. Coast to Coast Bicycle Ride- I love bicycling, and someday plan to take the summer of fly out to California and load my future touring bike up and hit the open road. Nothing but biking, camping, seeing new places and having a great time. This will be many years down the road as I would need to save some money and really get it mapped out,  but biking across the USA would be awesome!

2. Write a book- I haven’t decided if I want to write a fiction or nonfiction book, but someday want to write a book. I think I got a creative enough mind to make it something great. Maybe a retirement job, but is something I plan to do someday. Maybe this will be something I write during my bicycle tour across the USA.

1. Family Trip throughout the US- I think it would be fun to take Stella and any other future  kids on a trip to each state in America. It would be fun to find the most popular landmarks in each state to see. It would be cool to rent an RV and hit multiple states at once, but it will be something we will do over time.

Music Monday- We are the World

Today’s music Monday song will be the classic song, We Are The World. This is such a great song, if only people would follow the lyrics

” We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me”

We need to start giving more, we need to start caring more about the future. We all need to make better choices, help teach children to save this planet we live on. Children are the future, and we have the choice as parents, grandparents, and Earthlings to make a difference in their life. So start being positive, find new ways to give back, volunteering can go a long way!

Dog Park

It’s been a LONG time since the Boys and I went to the Dog Park. Decided to surprise them today with a Sunday Morning trip. As I got them loaded in the van, aka Big Betsy, this is what they looked like.

Ready to leave without me, luckily I still had the keys. As we were waiting to back out, this is where the boys decided to sit. Murphy right behind me, and Harley all the way back in the third row.

When we arrived at the dog park we met up with Uncle Nick and their cousins Izzy and Ameila

They had a blast, did about a 1-2 mule walk, there was a lot if dogs out there big and small. Great time, glad to be back just need to make it a weekly Adventure!

Fun Fact Friday

Well since I have a run tomorrow, here is a Running Fun Fact.

“The fastest mile was run by Moroccan, Hitcham El Guerrouj in 3:43:13 in 1999. Interestingly enough, the second fastest record holder is the 2nd place winner of the same race.”

The other day I thought my 6:59 mile was a fast run, I can’t even imagine running that fast for one mile. It would be awesome if I could get my running speed average closer to 7-7:30 minute miles. Oh well, just keep running I guess. Tomorow I just have the 5k goal of beating 25:54 as that was the time I had last year at this Amana Freezer 5k. It was a lot warmer last year, but maybe the cold will make me run faster!

Throwback Thursday Tattoo

Back in 2012 I got my first tattoo, wanted it to be something that means a lot, and something I enjoy, so of course it was a Bicycle on the back of my calf and the side the word RIDE in bicycle chain.

image

It was a strange feeling but now I believe it’s time to get the next ink.

I was thinking of doing a Star for Stella, but have thoughts of waiting till she is older do draw me a Star and get that tattooed on me.

Next would of course be time to show my Hawkeyes love. I have looked at multiple designs and so far I am going to do something similar to this with a few modifications.

image

I am thinking right shoulder, but location TBD. I saw a similar one that has the Herky outlined in Hawkeye gold, so that might be incorporated. I have the flag not only for the USA, but for my grandpa Boppy, has he was a beloved fan of this country and the Hawkeyes. Things might change, but this is what I am looking to do, again with a fee modifications.

Work Out Wedneaday

Well I have got my registration all set and ready to go for the Pigman Sprint Triathlon. This will be number 4.

Here is the past three years times.
2013 my first year

image

2014- Year 2 shaved off 5 minutes

image

Last Year, still a better time, but could have done better.

image

This year I have made it a goal of doing a lot more swimming, minimum of twice a week. So far its been good, need to get better at breathing during the swim, but its a work on progress. My other goal is to get the end 5k run down the 24-25 minutes that I usually do when I just run 5ks. Also I need to get the transition between swim and bike faster, so will be practicing that come spring.

This is a great first time Triathlon for anyone to TRI!
