Happy Mother’s Day and BelieveIAm Journal Winners

Happy Mother Runner’s Day, mother readers! Hope you’re having a wonderful day and are being pampered and thanked properly for everything that you do and the supermoms that you are! Today’s post will be a quick one: just stopping by to let you know who the winners of the BelieveIAm journal giveaway are, then I’m off to do supermom things like bake cakes from scratch, clean the house with 100% organic homemade cleaners and sew some new clothes for BabyRuns, from 100% organic cotton that I made.

Kidding. I just woke up from my nap and when I’m done here I’ll probably watch some Hulu, then we’ll have to eat out because I haven’t cooked anything today.

[But I did bike nearly 27 miles, tell you about that later!]

Oh yeah. The winners of the two journals are:

Number 4, Jennifer Nelson:
Good luck with your first half marathon, Jennifer! Now you have one more place to document your journey — and those to come! Enjoy!

And Number 15, Chloe:
I love that! Signing up for races and setting an example for my kid are my biggest motivators, too. And look at that – you did win! Congrats!

Jennifer and Chloe, please drop me an email with your addresses, so I can mail you the journals!

Today’s ride:Decided to celebrate Mother’s Day by riding my bike longer than I ever have today. That meant doing at least 20 miles, so the plan was to go out, ride for a little over 10 miles somewhere and head back. I wasn’t sure how RunKeeper would manage, considering its drunken performance at the Sirena18 yesterday, but what do you know: it worked perfectly.

I, however, managed to get lost a little bit. Not LOST-lost (and certainly not on an island with supernatural creatures…), but somehow on my way back I ended up on the busy El Camino Real (a highway with no bike lane, but plenty of traffic lights) instead of the beautiful tree-lined Foothill Expressway. The traffic lights slowed me down a lot, but overall I had a great ride that ended up being exactly two hours long – and I was hungry like a horse by the time I was done. Learning to drink and eat on the bike is still on my to-do list, and with an Olympic distance triathlon I’m eyeing on June 16, I’m running out of time. Help!

How was your Mother’s Day? Did you get some miles in? Or mimosas?
