While The Kids Are Away...

Mama will play.

That's me, Gigantor, on the right, with Kimberly
It's Spring Break here in AZ.  Most of the fam damily is up skiing their little hearts out in Utah.  But some of us are home doing other things, like gymnastics (not me) and sneaking away to Mt. Lemmon in Tucson, Arizona (guilty).

If you've never tried to conquer this beast of an Arizona mountain, it's worth your time to give it a spin.  So many riders were out enjoying the challenge of 27 uphill miles  -- taking you from the extreme desert heat to the cool, green pines and Manzanita trees swaying in the breeze at 8000 feet.  Such a treat for the parched and sun beaten cyclists.

Even if you don't want to ride your bike to the top, take a day to get out to Tucson, drive up to the peak and  enjoy the view.  Did you know there is a ski resort up there?  And giant plate sized cookies?
This cookie filled the entire plate before I had my way with it.
Then treat yourself twice and stop in at Eegees for a frozen fruit slush. My favorite flav is lemon, (sounds like there is a theme going on here).

If you really want to make a day of it, head on over to to browse around the world's largest triathlon store.  And while you're spending money, go ahead and book a night at Ventana Canyon or La Paloma for a five-star luxury getaway.

Oooh, and while you're thinking about it, set aside a week for Gorilla Multisport's Triathlon Training camp for March 2012.  All the goodness of the Tucson mountains, Saguaro National Park, intensive training days and endless bowls of chips and salsa for ya.  Now how could you top that?

How lovely it is to dream while you are awake.
