Thank you all so much for your kind words, support, emails, phone calls, messages, cards, everything...Losing Bailey has really knocked the wind out of me, but the overwhelming response is a testament to what an incredible guy he was. Thank you.
I might not wash all of my gear every day. I do the sniff test on all of my running gear. Is that weird?
Todays running shirt was questionable. I wore it anyway.
I am pretty stoked about today's brick. I rode 42 miles then ran 3 off the bike. What I am stoked about was that it was a hilly, windy ride. Really windy. I took one First Endurance liquid shot during the ride, something, I admit, I have been skipping because I prefer Fig Newtons to any gel. My run splits off the bike were 8:58; 8:32; 8:06 and I felt great (thank you FE). Might my speed FINALLY be coming back to me after last years injury? Oh please oh please oh please!
I think I should stick to those liquid shots for long rides. Maybe a few Fig Newtons too. Hard to give those up.
The water temp of our lake is 50 degrees. Guess I will be making the big drive to the pool for a few more weeks.
Oh crap. That means my first open water swim is going to be at Rev3 Quassy Half.
I had a great swim this weekend, I swam 1650 yards straight, which is a pretty big deal for someone who not too long ago could barely swim 50 without going to a breast stroke.
Yes, my boobs stayed in my bathing suit, thank you for asking.
A great big CONGRATULATIONS to Jeff and Bob on their Ironman Texas finishes!! Actually, congrats to all finishers - you guys FREAKING ROCK!
CONGRATULATIONS to Miss Zippy! She is the winner of my Tommie Copper compression giveaway! I have contacted her and she is on her way to some new compression wear. Congratulations Miss Zippy! Sorry I am announcing this a few days later than I promised. If you read this blog, you know why.
