2021 week 52: vacay

Last week wrapped up 2021 and gave us a peak into 2022. We spent most of the week on vacay with my family down in Austin, Texas. This was the first time we have all been together since 2018, so it was fun to all be in the same place at the same time again. We had a great time with near perfect weather! We came back on New Year’s Eve to typical winter weather in Iowa and not enough snow to play in.

Quote of the week:

“Life is an adventure best traveled together.”


Swim: 7333 yards

Last week we got to swim outside in December and it was SOOO AWESOME! The Big Stacy Pool was AMAZING and if you’re in Austin, I highly recommend it!

We got to swim outside…in December, which is something we are definitely NOT use to. Oh…we are also not use to swimming in a pool that is 33 1/3 yards long, so our 3000 yard swim quickly turned into 4000 yards. We thought we were swimming in a 25 yard pool despite the much slower paces than normal. 🤪

Bike: 0 miles

There weren’t any bike miles last week as we didn’t take our bikes with us. whomp whomp!

Run: 4 miles

We got to run in Austin with two of our nieces and it brought me sooo much joy + sweat (um…hello humidity! We’ve missed you!)!

Hope…hope for a brighter tomorrow. Hope for acceptance of differences. Hope for true equality. Hope for unity. Hope for change.

We can hope all we want, but change comes with action. Let’s all have courage, be kind, and decide to create the change we want to see in the world. We have the power to create a brighter, bolder, better future. #bringon2022

Weekly Totals: 3 hours & 2 minutes

  1. Amazing pictures in these last 2 posts! I can’t believe you were swimming outside in December-I’m so jealous…especially since it’s been -30 to -40 for weeks now. You’re so fortunate so have such a close family 🙂 Cheers!

    1. Thanks Amy Lynn! It was nice to get away, but it’s nice to be home again. Definitely won’t be swimming outside in January. It’s in the negative digits here as well. 🥰
