YOWZA! I’m so behind on blog posts. I’ll start with the Querque. It’s always great going home. Jack and I rode down together and he always makes me laugh really hard. Sometimes it feels like I never left, and a lot of times I get deja vu. This time was particularly interesting because my brother has left the nest since the last time I was there. I got to my parents’ house, and everyone was there to greet me except my brother. Awww.
In short, my photos will let you see what I was up to. I did some work for Sunflower in the mornings leading up to Thanksgiving. We are super busy. We have revamped our website a little- www.sunflowersolar.com.
I went mountain biking a lot, and I got to ride with my shero, Nina. I’m so excited that we are teammates this year!! I finally remembered to take my camera the last day I rode. I got lucky b/c the sun was setting with a killer view!
These are the wonderful Sandia mountains. Who said the desert is ugly? And for those of you out there who are a little “confused..” Albuquerque is a mile high. It is not low elevation. This is high desert. I can’t tell you how many people here in Colorado think it’s low.
This photos was taken WHILE I was riding with my camera upside down. I was having fun with photography and taking shots while moving and not looking what I was shooting at. I was pretty damn happy about this one! 🙂
I got to spend a lot of time with the fam. We went to my grandma’s house for Thanksgiving. This year, my aunt, uncle, cousin, and her husband came from Arizona. I don’t get to see them much, so it was a great time! The Looneys know how to party. I’m really lucky to have such a fun family.
Jeff and I ran a 10K on Thanksgiving. I wanted to break 40 min, but all the partying and lack of resting my legs had them ridden with lactic acid from the gun. It was also a super hilly course. There was a huge mishap in my race, but I won the women’s category and got 4th in the men. Not too shabby. 🙂
I finally got to see my friend Jason. His ex-gf had him under house arrest (haaa) every time I came to town. He is one of the funniest people I know.
