As some lives fade, so grow others.

This is a flower my neighbor gave me 10 days ago. When he brought it to my house, it was 1 inch high. Now it is almost two feet high and has a brand new bud on it. Amazing how life is. As I may be faced with saying goodbye to one friend, I'll have to see the beauty that surrounds me.
And the snow has finally come to our mountains. Cold temperatures, but they fit the season.
Out with the bike, unless the day is 39 degrees and above, and bring on the skis and snow shoes. Of course, we can't forget the gym workouts. And the indoor trainer........ This is the time of year when cross training is in full swing. Best gym workouts will come with at least 3 times in the gym. Make sure to work on any limitation you remember having during your season. Happy winter!
