What did I do this week?

Went to VT and went mountain biking on REAL Hills!  
I do eat like Cookie Monster on trips - mainly b/c my band shuts tight when I travel...I'm considering having fluid taken out so I can eat more whole foods.... lately I have been eating garbage because that's what goes down and make me feel full.  
I digress -

VT was the bomb!  I went with my best friend J - quite the adventure - we stayed at the adorable Wildflower Inn on top of the hill with views everywhere and the best damn breakfast ever! The best part is the location on the Trail - at the top!.  We road Wednesday afternoon for 2 hours once we got there - scary and fun riding with super technical parts on the side of cliffs..that I walked - chicken.

Thursday we rode for over 6 hours - up and down and all over the place - the trails are amazing there! About 27 miles and over 3500 cal burned - amazing.  Views at the top and challenging fast down hill with painfully long climbs. Then yesterday we spent the day in the car in the pouring rain driving back - long trip - we were so close to Canada - Hi Leigh!

I'm thankful that I'm in shape to be able to enjoy a trip like this - not even sore today...Trainer is coming in 30 minutes to torture me...But I know I need to get back to where I was last year and part of that will be being able to eat real food and not live on sliders like I have been doing.

Oh and and new blogger alert - check out Banded Brazilian!

Here are some pics of our adventure- none of them do the place justice.  

there is a beautiful chapel at the top of the hill where bikers are welcome - blessing of the cool!
