Adventures of Two Triathletes in Love Moving Across the Country!

Hello from Iowa, friends! Phil and I made a pitstop in Phil's home town for a break from driving, a bed to sleep in, and to enjoy the day with his family and friends (and their new born babies!)

We left DC at 10:30 am on Wednesday morning with a Uhaul trailer packed to the brim and all of our bikes on top (except my tri bike which is being baby sat at my friend Kates place until it ships to Cozumel!)

We battled serious wind, rain, and traffic until 2 am when we decided to pull over into a rest stop and take a few hour nap.  Dont worry- Brizzy slept for the whole entire ride. As soon as the car would start to move she would be snoring in the back seat.

After a few hour nap we continued our trek and finally made it to Iowa at 3pm on Thursday. I was thrilled to get out of the car!

I also managed to get in a little training on the car trip! Everytime we stopped the car to use the restoom I ran for a minute with the dog. I atleast ran 0.289 miles ;)

Off to bed- we are leaving at 5am to finish our trek to Denver and check out our new place and hopefully at least unpack our bed!


  1. So exciting!!! Love the Brizzy picture :)

  2. Moving anywhere is a huge deal - moving across country is hard! (I've done it twice - and moved back both times eventually too)!

    Good luck with the move, hope Denver is everything you want it to be.

  3. Good luck with the move and enjoy your new adventure!

  4. That picture of Brizzy is too much... moving is hard work! :) Thinking of you and wishing you all the best in your new adventure!!!
