Today was a long day of driving…I went back and forth from Dallas, collecting the boy child who has been at SMU for soccer camp. He had a blast.

When I got back, the hubby who has been out of town was home and he had a present for me. It is amazing–he took my blog entries, starting from when I first began training and ending with my Ironman Coeur d’Alene race report, combined them with photos he took along the way, and had it all made into a book.  The cover is my IM finisher’s picture, and the title of the book is the same as my blog, Enjoying the Journey.

I sat and reread every bit of it; it comes to some 90 pages. It’s so very special. I’m just speechless. You just have to see it.

My hubby is a wonderful man.
