Yakima HitchSki 6 Ski Adapater for Yakima Doubledown 4-bike Carrier

I am definitely snapping up one of these:

Yakima HitchSki 6 Ski Adapter.  We already have the bike rack (which is excellent).  Hitch-mount and folds down, even when loaded, so you can get into the back.  Plus the bikes are really held in there securely.

And now we have 3 pairs of skis and 3 snowboards to get to the slopes.  The little ones go inside, the big ones ride outside!  Plus I don't have to try to get everything off the top of the vehicle.

Seriously, what family runs out of room in a Ford Expedition EL?  Apparently us.

Quad Lock discount code and review

This link will give you the code and the link to Quad Lock's site to use the code.

I'm using the case now on my iPhone 6 Plus to hold it on my road bike but it's an easy swap to move the mount over to the mountain bike.  It's crazy sturdy and easy to put on and take off.
This is the mount on the bike and the phone case that it locks into:

The case is actually quite nice.  I use it as my main case now.

The "locking" part:

All in all, a really nice piece of kit.

First run of 2015

Still running and starting the year off right!  3 miles with my beloved in 30 degrees and 20mph winds - felt great. Focused on form and foot plant. #LearnToRun. :-)

On a path for 2015 to be able to truly call myself an ultramarathoner. Yes, I did the 50k but that's just one. Signing up for some big races TODAY and mapping the way forward between work, travel, kids, house, etc. 

Happy New Year!

The start of 2015 training

Well, we took some time off after the 50k. Ran infrequently but kept up on some cross training. Gotta heal up!

2015 "real" trading started today with a drizzly 36 degree four mile run. We've got BIG plans for 2015. 

Looooooove running.  Goofballo Blanco is back!

Kids follow good examples!

As with most things, with exercise and diet, kids tend to follow their parent’s lead. If most of your meals are McLousy for you and you’re out of shape, your kids will probably be as well. They follow the example that YOU set, and kids deserve a chance to be healthy.

Our kids all like to run, some further than others. :-)

The pics below are from a kid’s duathlon this summer. 7 year olds bicycled 1 mile and ran 1/2 mile. 6 year olds bicycled 1/2 mile and ran 1/4 mile. Both gutted it out and did their best. They had even trained in the neighborhood, carrying water bottles just like mom and dad!
