Other than S/B/R, um, yeah, I don't really have much time for other obsessions. I am obsessed with hills, getting better at them on the bike and run and not totally sucking an egg.
My 4" red heels...no, not really, I don't need to be 6'1" for crying out loud. Cheap-O tank tops from Sam's Club, two in a pack for $16. Love em.
...rectal thermometer for the dogs. Wait, that's not for me, that's for the dogs, I'm not using that thing in ANY fashion.
Colon blow aka All Bran, a banana, coffee
Jim is funny in a low key funny kind of way. When he sent me this he said - make it funny, I'm trying Jim, hope I can get you to laugh! Jim also likes to swim and freeze his face off. 12 C, whaaaat!?!
Bonnie Bell Dr. Pepper Chapstick - I have one in every pocket, every purse, every jacket and bag.
Turkey, probably never go unless I know someone that's Turkish but I'd love to see it. Instead, you can just send me to Grand Teton National Park TO die. I'd be OK with that. And when I'm dead, just dump my ashes there. Favorite place since I was a kid and still go there every year. Open water swimming at GTN!
Kick ass with Ryan at the Mach Tenn Sprint Tri this weekend (our first relay together) - I just need to hold up MY part, he'll be fine. I'm swimming and running.
9. What are you reading right now?
Really, no time to read, work, eat, sleep, watch HOCKEY, swim, bike, run, hang with hubs, swim with Grandma, that about covers it for me. Oh and MAYBE clean a house and a bike, really read?!
10. What is the last movie you saw and enjoyed?
11. What’s your guilty pleasure?
That white cheese dip at every Mexican restaurant. We call it butt spackle at our house but I swear, give me a bucket of that, some avocado, salsa and chips and that's dinner. I will lick the bowl.
12. What’s your Least favorite smell?
Being crop dusted by someones fart in a store or other public place. If it's in the family, that's one thing but the random crop dusting is something all together different.
13. Whats something you look forward to?
My new work schedule 4 x 10 with Wednesday's off - how much damage can one do on a Wednesday? We'll just have to see. AND the relay tri on Saturday with RH!!!
14. Favorite Quote?
See top of my blog.
15. What is something you would like to do, as outrageous as it may sound?
Write a book...not so sure of the topic, I have lots of random thoughts, helpful tips and even a serious moment or two. I just don't think anyone would buy it.
16. Whats one thing you can't go a day with out doing?
Drink coffee and poop...in that order.
17. What do you have an addiction to?
My Booberry - I seriously don't think I've gone without it for less than a few hours.
18. Whats your favorite holiday?
Thanksgiving because it's not about gifts, just about getting together, watching the Lions lose on tv, overindulge and play games.
19. How many pairs of shoes (not just running) do you have??
No clue, unlike most women, I don't care about shoes so much. I DO have at least five pairs of my current running shoes that haven't been retired to lawn mowing yet.
20. Tell us one random thing about you.
This is to see if my Dr. is reading this - I love these little brush toothpick thingies. When I'm in my car, I go to down. I take that little brush and go through every little crack and crevasse. Makes my teeth feel super clean - my teeth are good just very tight. Oh, and I brush with baking soda and peroxide 2-3 times/week. Mom used to and she had good teeth?! Is that bad?
To let family and friends know how Ironman training was going last year - then, it took on a life of its own. YOU people still come here so I keep writing. I check analytics once in a while and if there's anyone out there who wants to give me free shit to try, I can give you my stats;) I'm 5'9" so no clothes for shrimpy people, thanks.
22. What is your silliest/ most embarrassing triathlete rookie story?
I don't embarrass easily, shocking, I know. Really and truly. I think it's just that I don't give a flip. If it's something crazy or will make someone laugh, I'm in, even at the risk of embarrassing myself. I think laughter is underrated and if everyone just took themselves less seriously, the world would be a better place. OK, maybe not better but it sure would be more fun. I don't know that I've ever done anything particularly dumb, no helmet on backwards, no naked under a wetsuit, I got nothing...OH, that's the other side of me, I will research and understand something in every detail so crazy shit DOESN'T happen to me. If I happen to it, sure, but I don't want to be totally caught of guard.
Retire at the cool age of 36...I got all kinds of stuff I'd LIKE to do rather than all the things that I must do.
24. If you could train with one person in the world in any sport, who would it be? (My changed Question)
I'm torn on this one - either Amanda Lovato or Bree Wee. I think they both kick ass but have real expectations about sport and life. I don't know that they could come down to my level for even a day but I think we would have fuuunnnn.
I forgot what the rules were, but Jim, did you laugh?
