Greetings from the East Coast!
By Mary McConneloug
Mike and I have been here for the past two months enjoying the quiet respite of his hometown on Martha's Vineyard. It is truly a welcome blessing, not only to have a house to live in with Mike, but also to be stationed in one place for more than a week!
I am especially appreciating cooking up storms in the kitchen. Mike tells me he is the luckiest guy in the world when I serve up my newest healthy invention - a sweet potato coconut pie with whole wheat coconut crust. Yum. lots of soups, dark green veggies and roasted goodies, too.
There is something about the cold dark time of year that brings introspection and reflection. As I look back and recall all the good and tough times from this year, I can only be grateful for another successful year of racing, learning and living. Heartfelt gratitude goes out to all those who have supported us in our mission!
The huge travel in 2006 was almost as challenging as the racing itself but Mike and I managed to stay healthy and fit as we zigzagged across the globe and back.
