Didn't plan most of that, it just happened and was fun. No races on the agenda, so all runs at this point in time are just for my own satisfaction.
Longest run of the week:
11 great miles with Brittany and the Spring Marathon Training Team on Saturday morning
Monday (aka New Year's Day) was the RVA Fat Tire Bow-Tie Ride.
We did a three hour bike cruise around the fan district of Richmond.
|I missed the detail about dressing up...oops.|
But of course Tappan was sporting his bowtie!
I typically do NOT have coordination at these types of sports but we all had an an epic move or two.
We proceeded to cruise over to Hollywood Cemetery, a famous cemetery that has the remains of tons of famous people including:
And many visually pleasing memorials and gravestones:
Happy New Year, Friends!!!

|COULD NOT RESIST |
hammin' it on the Ha' Penny Stage with Btypes, my lavendar twinsie.
We have no idea what this random wooden stage is doing in the middle of the field.
- president John Tyler
- president James Monroe
- president of the confederacy Jefferson Davis
- over 18,000 civil war soldiers
- six Virginia governors
- two supreme court justices
It's a beautiful cemetery with a breathtaking view of the James River:

|I am a helmet nazi.|
I see WAY too many bad outcomes
of people not wearing helmets at work in my Trauma ICU.
|I love many things about this photo:|
Cool tree shadow
|I like to think that this is the mysterious "Black Dog" of Richmond.|
Although I think it was referring to a fond memory of a family dog...
Someone even left some Kibbles and Bits for it!!
Is everyone having success with their New Year's Resolutions so far?
Well....seeing as how I haven't come up with any yet...I am either failing or passing. In typical Katherine fashion, I am late on the resolution bandwagon-- I usually prefer to make gradual changes in my life and not make any sudden unnatural changes because I'm less likely to stick to them.
