Good Morning! Wow this weekend was a whirlwind of fun!
Thursday – I flew to Seattle and saw my recipe in a magazine.
Saturday I learned about storytelling and picture editing.
And Sunday I went home and watched the Real Housewives of New Jersey (love love love) before promptly passing out. I am obsessed with that show, so if you are too let’s discuss.
This morning I had to shoot some video on my run for a BIG project I have coming up. So, I did 6 miles total but there were a lot of breaks in there.
I came back hungry and had half a sandwich thin with AB while making eggs. I’m so glad I remembered to pick up ketchup yesterday!
And I don’t know how or why, but this batch of iced coffee is extra delicious! I brewed it last night and added almond milk and stevia this morning. I think going a little heavy handed on the almond milk “made” it.
Yes, so I have a big video project going on and I’m going to start training for my first triathlon this week! There is a local Triathlon group for woman called Tri La Vie that has invited me to train with them.
I’m planning on doing the iTRYathlon at the end of July – it’s organized by Renegade Racing – a local racing company that also hosts trail runs and other events.
This race is an entry level triathlon with a 200 meter swim (in a pool!), 9 mile bike and 3 mile run. So, it’s not a killer distance and I don’t have to learn open water swimming –> but I haven’t biked in a year and haven’t actually swam a real lap in 6 years?!
Backstory – I started to train for my first triathlon in college after I hurt my ankle while running. I knew I needed to cross train more to protect my running muscles. I saved up my money and bought a bike and a wetsuit. I even started to train with a local group since I knew NOTHING about tris.
Well, I got busy with school, work and my internship and quit the tri-training.
Sadly, the wetsuit was one of the casualties of our move across the country. Ben and I threw out a ton of super valuable stuff at the last minute because it didn’t fit in the car and we were on a time crunch
Anyways, years later I am finally going to give the triathlon another shot.
Problems to solve:
1. My bike has 2 flat tires and spider webs.
2. I don’t have a pool to train in! My gym doesn’t have a pool and I’m not sure where to go. I’m thinking the local Y?
Music Monday: Pitbull’s Back in Time
I need to add this one to my playlist!
