I’m sorry it’s been so quiet here. There hasn’t been much to write about lately. Since the race I’ve been super lazy, not training at all. About the only exercise I get is taking longish walks when the mood strikes me. At some point I’ll get back into the exercising, but for the time being, I’m enjoying the downtime and attending to the parts of my life I’ve been neglecting lately.
One area in particular was my hair. It’s been getting very long and I really didn’t know what I wanted to do about it. With the Vineman training, I was reluctant to give up the ease of throwing it into a ponytail, so I tabled that issue until after the race. I typically have just gone into the hairstylist and asked for a variation of a fringy chin-length bob, but this time I wanted something different, I just wasn’t sure what. So, I waited to be inspired.
Inspiration struck while finally getting around to watching the Netflix show House of Cards. One look at Robin Wright’s hair and I was in love:

I made an appointment with Roxie and even splurged on some chunky blonde highlights. I couldn’t be happier with the end result:
