the post that goes nowhere

My plug for today: my creepy blog friend Jon over @ SwiCycloRun requested an email interview from ME about my IMLP experience, as well as other points in my triathlon "career." As a relative newcomer to the sport (been multi-sporting since 2007) and eager to self-promote, I happily complied. You can read the interview here.

Shameless plug over.

I am starving. Do you ever have that feeling where you eat, and eat, and eat, and eat, and EAT, and are NEVER full? That is me right now.

I got a little tipsy last night. Yes, it was a Tuesday night. That is all I will say about that. Don't judge me.

Today is one of those days where my goal is to simply make it through in one piece. I am tired, hungry, and really, really tired. Like, I may fall asleep while swimming laps later. That is how tired I am! I will go to bed early tonight!

Life is boring with no Ironman training stories!

It is official - I am riding the Syracuse 70.3 bike course on Saturday. I promise a full report of the course sometime shortly after. Rumor has it that there is a giant elephant statue along the course. I'm pretty excited to witness this! It may even top the Jesus statue that you see if you ride around Canandaigua Lake.

Summer is almost over, which means fall is almost here! Fall is my absolute favorite season. It always sparks my nostalgia over things such as running high school XC and late season horse shows. Fall is the PERFECT time to train for a marathon. The air is crisp, the leaves are turning, and you can actually run without losing 10 lbs of sweat. School is starting back up again (although I am not currently going to school). Hoodies and jeans are back in the wardrobe.

I can't wait. :)


  1. Tipsy Tuesday, sounds like something that could become a tradition.

  2. creepy blogger status ACCOMPLISHED! ;)

    Have a good course preview this weekend! We are expecting a picture of that elephant!

  3. HA! I have been drunk every day of the week in the same week. Glad you had fun!

    LOVED your interview. Can I be a creepy blogger too? :) ha ha

    Definitely get a pic of the elephant statue. Have a great weekend!

  4. I've done the 70.3 course a few weeks ago. Its a hilly first 12-15 miles or so...then it gets so beautiul, then a fast last few miles!! Have fun! I will be riding it again on Monday...

  5. read your interview a few days ago, and loved it...great job!

    I also love Fall for most of the same reasons you do, although my kids are running XC right now so I still get to enjoy watching them run. Love the jeans and hoodies, and running and biking in the crisp air, and the smell, and I am a teacher so I am back to school and I love that too (other than the time it takes away from my training and family and blogging and reading and ....)


I love creepy blog stalker friends! Don't be afraid to leave me a comment!
