Hope you had a fantastic weekend. Seems hard to believe that it's already almost Monday. Isn't it funny how the weekdays tend to drag on and on forever...and then the weekend hits and Blamo! It's over in the blink of an eye. Odd, I say. Odd.
But I digress.
Julia and I have been enjoying some wonderful weather in Florida since we arrived on Wednesday. It has been in the 70s and sunny which is so nice. I love getting a little color on my face too so I don't look totally like boiled chicken!
We've enjoyed time at the pool, in St Petersburg with our friends The McCallens and their cutie 6-month-old Finnian, and of course time with our Florida Family - the Stutzmans. Here are a few pictures:
Meeting the crazy pelicans on St. Pete Pier
Perfect day for the pool
This is Winter the dolphin, the one behind The Dolphin Tale movie!

Hopefully we'll have time this week to enjoy more fun in the sun too between my work obligations! We're here until Saturday and it's supposed to be perfect every day - yay!
I've been able to run every day (except yesterday - I took my first "rest day" since January 4th...even though we walked all day in St Pete!) with Julia. It's been tough pushing her (she's ridiculously heavy!) and getting back used to warm weather, but I'm doing my best. Going to try and hit the gym this week too so I can get some swimming/biking in too.
So yea, can you believe it's almost February? This means just one thing to me:
Ironman training starts in t-minus 3 days!
Here goes nothing!
1) How was your weekend?
2) Have you started training for your "A" race yet? If so, how's it going?
3) What was your January highlight?
