What Next?

"The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.” - Flora Whittemore

Well, it's been a week and half since our big race of the year and we're beginning to think about what comes next.

Rest, the First Annual Family Camping Trip (with our parents, husbands, and in-laws), working out when we want to, and enjoying some free, unscheduled time are on the immediate agenda. Ray will also be spending some time getting to know our local orthopedists and podiatrists as she deals with some knee and foot pain that have been lingering long enough.

Next month, Robyn will join her best friend Carly in running the Outer Banks Half Marathon. It will be Carly's first half and the longest she's ever run - and Robyn can't wait to cross the finish line with her...and enjoy an ocean front beach house and hot tub after the race!

Then, who knows?

  • Robyn's planning on focusing on her running speed and overall swimming this winter, and is considering racing the Run at the Rock in December.
  • Rachel is looking forward to starting her doctoral program in January and is holding off on making an racing / training plans until she see what life looks like as a student again -- but she is looking into becoming a Masters Swimming Champ this winter.
  • We're talking with Genesis Home about their next challenge grant to see if / how Tri to End Homelessness can best help continue raising funds in 2008.
  • And Robyn is thinking -- just thinking -- about doing something big (the half!)next season.

As we take some time off, we won't be blogging as often. But do keep an eye on this space to learn of our latest and greatest plans.

Thank you for all of your support this year!
