Not So Wordless...Wednesday!



Go Ironman Louisville! Sorry, this Wednesday, we have words for the first and maybe last time evah. For anyone racing in Louisville this weekend, if you're reading, please drop a comment with your race number. I WILL be there. Here's what our ragtag group usually looks like - can't miss us. Yes, Ironballs is our mantra. When you hear - YOU HAVE IRONBALLS, that's us.


This was at the swim finish and, um, yeah, it hadn't even started yet and I was AT LEAST one bloody mary in. They're thick, they're strong and you'll get used to it. Yep, we start the day out right and cheer til midnight. It's exhausting really. I will be sporting the same look + purple wig so show me some love out there.
Learn from my mistakes - know where the photographers are and don't let them take a picture of you eating a sandwich. Yep, peanut butter and honey sandwich in hand. I had to buy the pic.

I don't really need to give you my # because much like your group...I'll stand out in the crowd :-0


So what are the chances that you and your merry possee will either be locked up or passed out by the time I finish, eat, and get cleaned up to join you in your "merriness?"

When are you arriving in Lewaville (I'm practicing saying it like a local)?

I'll send you an email with my hotel info and phone # later.

Be sure to stand at mile mark 25 on the run and hand Ryan a beer... the extra protein should be beneficial at that point.

Missy!!! Two years ago this weekend was when I finally got to meet you and hang out. What memories. Man, sorry I will miss our Ironman-o-versary. Crap. I hope you have a happy one at IM KFC and find another loud mouth, uncensored buddy to cheer with. I will be there in spirit...and like I told Ash, be sure to shout your lungs out in the megaphone for me. I just am kicking myself that I planned vacation during this fun, fun event. Crap-ol-A to me.

I want details when I get back!!

Wish you were in St. John's two weeks ago.

I'll try a bloddy mary before my next ITT. WAIT That's only if I am cheering right!

mmbaker said...

What she says about her bloody mary's is true. A few of us got together one morning to make posters for the Louisville Ironman race. She says, "Want a bloody mary?" I says, "Of course!" She says, "Is it too strong?" I says, "Maybe, a little." She says, "YOU"LL GET USE TO IT!" And I did!

Marit Chrislock-Lauterbach said...

Okay - you TOTALLY have to cheer Ryan on for me! Have a BLAST!!! Enjoy and man.... If I lived out where you guys were, I would totally join you! :) :) :) Enjoy the Bloody Marys. YUM!

Bets said...

Your blog always makes me smile. Wish your crew could be at GF to cheer for me in October. Have fun this weekend!

Keith said...

I totally love the look on your face in the pic where you've got drinks in BOTH hands. Then I burst out laughing at the peanut butter shot. You're moving so fast the photographer couldn't get you in focus, and it looks like you just took a bite. Great choice in bikes, btw.

joyRuN said...

Your crew look like the best cheerleaders EVAH!

Glad you bought that pic - awesome :D

IronMissy - it's official!
