I tried something new today and rode my bike to work!

I had six miles on the bike for today on my training plan and since work is a little over four miles away, I figured, why not kill two birds with one stone?  Plus, I got a couple extra miles in!  I know that two separate four mile rides is not the same as one eight mile ride, but at the same time, miles are miles!  Training or not, I really enjoyed biking to work and I think it will definitely happen again on a regular basis!  Probably not daily, but I’d love to do it at least once a week!  Especially because it took me just as long to bike as it does with driving since I park a bit of a hike away from my building.  Kind of pathetic, isn’t it?

Tonight was the end of the year picnic for Anthem!  It’s such a fun, laid back night – lots of food, fun games, and you know, our pastors trying to break a limb during tug of war.  Wednesday nights make my heart so happy.

I cannot believe another year has come and gone – next year, my girls will be juniors!

Getting involved in student ministries was one of the best things I’ve done for myself in recent years.  These girls inspire me so much.

I’m such a sucker for inspiring stories and videos (I still love Ben‘s 120 pound journey). Someone posted this video on Facebook today and it is so inspiring!  I was all teary by the end.

Love it.  Such a great reminder that anything is possible!

That video is amazing! I feel like I look like that when I do yoga all the time!!! It’s amazing to see what a person can do when they find someone who believes in them and when THEY start to believe in themselves. How inspirational! Thanks for sharing!!

Yay biking to work! You know I support that since I do it myself :). Late spring is a good time to start, too.

Ah, I wanted to – and planned on it – but my legs and allergies were both SO angry with me that morning that I just couldn’t do it! Dang it!
