tripkehughes Don't be fooled. The struggle is real. Lately any excuse will overpower being outside getting my fitness on. I've found this to be deeply rooted. Yet I need to be moving, preferably outside. My body needs it. Most importantly my brain and emotional health need it. It's been a crazy around these parts as of late, and I'm showing wear. Yet I choose to walk one day at a time. Thus: I couldn't make it outside this weekend for my normal long rides, so I settle for #Tabatas at home. See what I did there? #winning 6d

tripkehughes One lesson I've learned over the past 13 years: even amid chaos, find bits of joy & celebration. Today I enjoy this Little Man and cherish the natural way he radiates enthusiasm. Being a mom today is fun. 4w

tripkehughes Pre-birthday hike with this cutie patutie. None of our other rug rats wanted to join, so this guy was my date. He pulled in 4.5 miles (his longest yet) trail run/hike. Bravo little man. It was my best birthday gift yet! 4w

tripkehughes Trail running with these mini peeps. All but one had a great time *i swear*. Even though it feels we're being knocked down again, gotta keep showing up for life. I firmly believe staying present, mindful, seeking these moments of joy, all amidst chaos, brings me semblance of peace. Being in the great outdoors, sun on my back, breeze in my hair, doesn't hurt. One bit. #hikingforthewin #arizonahiking 1mon

Normal tripkehughes
tripkehughes It's been a rough year. Who am I kidding? We've had rough patches for many years, intertwined with absolutely fantastic memories & experiences too. Seems normal, right? Today we covered all above mentioned bases, in just a few short hours. By 2pm I was spent. Wiped out. True story.
Another true story: that adorable boy there in front, he over came his fears. Last time we attempted this trail, his fear of heights took over. Today, this boy climbed strong, all the way to the top! #littlevictories #HikeArizona #hikingarizona

tripkehughes Downtown Phoenix has something good going on Saturday mornings. These were my favorite items at our downtown #farmersmarket this week. Bought all my produce on Wednesday so I had extra time to explore other treasures. 2mon

tripkehughes #LittleMiss has been working her tail off to prepare for the big 2nd grade #Australia Report. #LakeEyre has nothing on this girl.

tripkehughes The ride started with 10+, ended with five. We saw cold temps, fast paces (first lap), flat tires, bike swaps, giggles, snacks, coffee break, all in all fantastic ride. Finally feeling strong again. 2mon

tripkehughes This is how we started our Thanksgiving day. See there, bottom-center left? That's me in the red/white/black @dnacyclesarizona Kit! Obviously with 150 of our closest friends. It was a sight to see all these people riding with speed downtown today. Weird how cycling is such a small world. Several times on the ride today I looked over and there was a friend from years past, or recent past. My heart is full. Thanks @j_mathew_th for kicking it today.
I can't take credit for the picture. It's from @clippedinaz

tripkehughes The weather has been all sorts of perfect. It's park season, finally. Lately we've been playing frisbee, tossing a football, cartwheels, racing, and easy rolling. Today, I was playing #Projectfunmom and #photographermom when I got nailed in the face with our new frisbee. Yet I couldn't stop smiling. These three can do that to a mother. #sorryforslammingyourfeed 2mon
