Taos Ski Valley opens today!
The skis are screaming that it's there turn to get out! Lots of jealousy in this family.
I think the bikes are happy, they had a great season this year and made their goal of 1000 miles this past Monday. I thought it funny that just as the odometer turned 1000 I was at the one and only STOP sign on the ride. Nothing sublingual here! This is the first time my husband made the magical 1000 and his computer stopped working with 30 miles to go, great timing!
This year I was excited about getting the 1000 miles but ... been there, done that before and was really working on improving my speed. At the beginning of the season I struggled to get 14 mph on my favorite 10 mile ride, then something happened and the speeds just flew through the 14's. Couple weeks back I averaged 16 mph over the 10 mile ride and was estatic! Yahoo, I've never been so speedy. Imagine how disappointed I was when I did 15.9!
Now I will need to sharpen the skis and think about next year's goals. I am sure the bikes will make an occasional appearance over the winter but why live at the base of the best ski mountain in the world and not go visit the summit?
Happy Thanksgiving Everbody
