Tall Weekend Ahead

 First...I'd like to give a shot out to the inventor of the Gyro. I love you.

I am actually sitting at my desk right now, enjoying a gyro for lunch. I have to teach spin later this afternoon...I might be the stinky teacher today. Although gyros are totally dee-lish...they are stinky.

On Saturday I will be participating in the Trek Up The Tower event here in Omaha.
I will race to the top of the First National Bank Tower. It is 40 floors, 870 steps, and 633 feet into the sky, First National Tower is the tallest building between Chicago and Denver.

The Hubby and I are doing the race with the Carter family, the other couple who we camp with all the time. It is apparently quite the event. Big companies in Omaha sponsor employees to go and community members can form teams too.

So...spin tonight, tower on Saturday, and a 7 mile TEAM run at 7am on Sunday. Nothing like a good workout to fight off that stress. THEN IT'S VACATION WEEK!
