*Chocolate sprinkles don't really taste like chocolate.
*My max speed at the NYC Tri was 37 MPH
*On Friday my son wanted a dog, on Sunday he wanted a brother (as if).
*I am reading a book called Olive Kitteridge, by Elizabeth Stout (thanks to my literary goddess friend Susie, who's booklist on FB I scanned for ideas). So far, so good.
*When I did my 1:30 run on Saturday it was 95˚F with a heat index of 102˚F, I drank 56 oz. of fluid (3.5 lbs) and I thought I was going to barf at the end.
*My cold water tap in my shower and tub at it's coldest setting comes out lukewarm. It is like torture after a long, hot run. Ice baths are stuff of fairy tales in my house; the water melts an entire bag of ice in no time flat and it is still not cold.
*I have my 25th class reunion in less than two weeks. I went to the 10th, but not the 20th and yes, I am that old.
*In truth, I am looking forward more to swimming in the lake and riding the country roads more than I am my reunion.
*A further truth, I am looking forward more to having a weekend away from my husband and son than I am to swimming in the lake and riding the country roads.
*I'm not sure why I bother to speak; no one I live with seems to pay attention to anything I say.
*I am tired.
*I have three races left for the 'season': 5k, sprint tri, HIM. I'm sure there will be other races out of 'season' if my coach has anything to say about it.
*I have no desire to do an IM. However, I will be putting my name in for the NYC Marathon lottery for 2011. I used to say I would never do a marathon.
*I can never seem to come up with a good idea for a blog post. Then I read someone's post who has had a good topic and I think, "Why can't I think of something like that?"
*How in the hell do people score free shit to test? Do you just ask for it?
*I have a 4 year old, but I do not speak '4 year old'. I had to buy a book about anatomy geared at a 4 year old, since said 4 year old was continually asking me why I pee out my butt. I should have just locked the bathroom door. Oh, right, it doesn't have a lock.
*You know that movie Kindergarten Cop? This morning my sitter arrived and my son says, "Boys have penises and girls have vaginas." I am so proud.
*I need to dye my grays and get a hair cut.
*I really want to cut my hair short. My husband says he will divorce me.
* My bike started making this knocking sound on my ride on Sunday. I can't figure out where it is coming from. Somewhere in the rear (pedaling or coasting I get the sound). My husband thinks it might be the bearings in the hub. There are bearings in the hub?
*I use diaper cream as one might use butt butter. Infinitely cheaper and I have tons of leftovers lying around (I particularly like Balmex or Boudreaux's Butt Paste-this one is a little on the thick side, but stays put and has a slightly, refreshing tingly sensation, oh my!)
*I found a new podcast today, Stuff Mom Never Told You (from the folks at How Stuff Works).
*I got new dishes, which I did not design myself.
*I am doing some artwork for a line of note cards for Crane & Co.
