4am, How I love thee?

On tap for today's loads of laughs - a baby 3 mile run and bike ride with friends tonite! In between, there will be something that resembles work being accomplished. I'm just bummed that I didn't get to do or see anything exciting in the last couple of days. I think I need to head to Walmart or the pool for a fix or something. WAIT, I got it, I saw a guy, a big, fat guy who 'has bad knees' (I'm sure) on a riding mower. I wouldn't have laughed out loud if the lot size wasn't 1/3 acre or less - he couldn't even turn the thing. For crying out loud people, walk behind your mower like Diana, jebushcheeerist. Check out the pictures of her mowing the lawn, only dirty D could get away with that. Instead, I get to see giant fat guy on a riding mower...akin to the fat guy at the grocery on a scooter. Fat ass America, I swear...TN at LEAST!

Here you go kids - set your DVR's, TiVO's or just sit down and watch. The third annual Aflac Iron Girl Atlanta Triathlon will be televised nationally on NBC Sports. The broadcast will air on Sunday, Aug. 2, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET. Now, I'm sure it'll be full of fun and inspirational stories. I did not get interviewed but look for a bright green flowery Speedo, that's ME. I'm sure I stepped on someones head to get into the water.


I happened to mention to Ryan that I was getting up at 4am this morning so I could run and ride later. His question, WHY, again? I told him that the 'plan' goes into affect today. He says - the plan for Beach2BattleSHIT? I said yes, the plan for Beach2BattleSHIT, baaahahahaha. He's all for it, he just thinks that getting up at 4am is, well, shitty. Can't blame him, I don't love it either. Here it goes...

Oh man. I forgot that freaking race is going to be on tv. I hope the announcer dones NOT say "and there are some that just could not finish" and then a picture of me - walking my bike. With a busted tube sticking out of the back of my tri shorts and a flat back tire. Ugh. I've been watching to much Ironman Kona on Hulu.

You should pucsh that guy off his mower. See if he can get up. :)

Ok. Off for a ride. :)

I have my DVR set, something to watch while on the trainer.

Back to the taper, I hate this week of training, race on Saturday.

It's gonna be aired... I will so not miss it! Thanks for the reminder :)

Carly said...

LMAO....that guy sounds like my neighbor. HE has a riding lawn mower on a tiny ass city lot. I could cut the whole thing in 10 minutes with a pair of clippers.

Glaven Q. Heisenberg said...

Hahahaha! Fat guys on sit down mowers!

Diana eats those guys for BREAKFAST!

IronBob said...

And your tax dollars probably paid for the scooter and the lawn mower! With Obama care you will probably be required to stop your car and ask him "Is there anything else I can do for you?"

Keith said...

It could be worse.

4am --- IN THE SNOW!!! -40 C. Howling wind. Polar bears padding around sniffing for food, or worse, playmates.

Not sure where I saw it, but there was a series of pics of a huge person, on a little motorized scooter the handicapped use to get around, going through the drive through lane at a MacDonalds or other fast food outlet. Sad.

Now to the important stuff. The pic of your medal. Is that taken on a shoe? A shoe?? Or, I suppose, it could be a purse. You know what's going to be preying on MY mind today....

Beth said...

Diana on the mower ... I'm speechless! Now I feel like I wimped out at the gym this morning. Good luck w/ your B2B training. Got your note - Wilmington is a cool town. You'll enjoy it!

I need this post to motivate me to stop sleeping in when the alarm clock goes off a 4:45am. I could've gotten another mile into my run this morning if I got up when I was supposed to.

4am huuuuuuurrrts though!

We have a riding mower, but at least we're talking about 2acres of weeds that need to be plowed down. My hub's trying to lose weight though - I should show him that picture of Diana!

Carolina John said...

haha, yea riding mowers are for the weak of knee. i still cut my acre with a pushmower, but without tying weights behind me. geez, diane is nuts.

Diana said...

Right now on GMA they are talking about gastric bypass people who are gaining weight back because they can't say NO to food!!! LMAO! Loosers! Get your ass out there and cut some grass.
Next time I drag my 55lb skid loader tire around the yard I'll have Jared take a pic for a posting!! You think I'm kidding right??? Just wait!
Thanks for the shout out-looking forward to watching your green ass on my home theatre 99 inch screen this weekend!!!! You are in HD I hope?!

Amanda said...

I work with a guy who just bought a riding mower. He lives in a subdivision. The houses are 50 ft apart!!! Come on, people! But, he might have a heart attack if he tried to push one. instead, he drinks beer and rides.

I'll take my beer as a reward for the effort :)

4am is early, girl! Hats off to yoiu for that.

Molly said...

Ha! My husband's comment when he got home from TN on Sunday was, Wow, people really ARE heavier in the South!

Mel-2nd Chances said...

I have my pvr set already! Saw it advertised during Kona's showing on saturday. Hope you had a good run and enjoy your ride tonight... they're calling for T-storms here tonight, not sure i'll get mine in :(

Wes said...

Don't worry. If you are anywhere in the frame, we will instantly now its you :-) 4 AM? HTFU :-)

RBR said...

Let the hardcore craziness begin! So cool to watch you work toward B2B! I hop you had a great run and have a great ride tonight!

AKA Alice said...

4am?!?!?! You and Diana are the most bad-ass chicks I know.

Got the DVR set. I'll be lookin' for your green-self!

Runner Leana said...

I must have been chanelling you Missy when I woke up at 4 am!! Must remember to set the DVR for the Iron Girl!!

Jes said...

You mean 4 a.m. actually exists?!? I thought it was just some crazy rumor! Way to harden the fuck up!

MCM Mama said...

Way to get up early! I'm so not there with you LOL.

I'll try to catch the show, but we are probably the last household in America without any sort of DVR...

ShirleyPerly said...

Definitely Fat Ass Florida!! Mowing the right way is hard work but I can't imagine dragging a kettlebell behind me, LOL.

I hope to be back from my workout in time to watch the show on TV. Green flowery speedo, got it!

I do not understand riding mowers. Of course it takes me longer to start my push mower than it does to actually mow my stamp of a yard.

Kevin said...

My body has apparently reset its internal alarm to 415 as I keep waking up then even when I dont have to get up

I have my DVR set. A friend posted a link to a 6 minute youtube video from IG at
