Friday Mind Dump

This is my 268th post! Weird, I know. I thought it would die after Ironman was over.

This weekend is Augusta 70.3, best of luck and my hope for you is clear skies. My grass is covered in mushrooms is so wet here.

This weekend is the 24 Hour Tri in Colorado that I want to do next year.

I set an alarm for 4 AND 4:15 but I don't really get up until I hear the coffee maker downstairs buzz to say it's ready.

I saw a very large man being arrested. He was handcuffed, sitting on his riding mower that was on a trailer he was pulling with his truck. He was fat and shirtless. It was the weirdest thing all week.

I saw a guy with huge moobs running. He really needed a bra, I felt bad for him.

I saw a lady that needed a new bra, running. She should know better.

Do people think cat calls while you're running really work? What would they do if you stopped, turned around and said, Let's GO, Right NOW? Would they cry and run away scared?

Equally as weird as the guy vacuuming his car at 4am, is the guy washing his car while it's raining (pouring). What can't wait for a dry day?

For this week, I have left - one swim (on my way right now), a 4 hour bike and a baby bike/run brick. ALL before football kickoff on Sunday at noon. Will I make it? Place your bets and if it's raining, I'm NOT getting on a trainer for 4 hours because you can't make me.

I'm convinced the car wash thing is just a type A-person saying...."Oh, I started this and now I'm gonna finish no matter what!"

Did I just confess something? LOL.....

BTW, If I ever give you a cat call (where the hell did this come from)-I really do want you to turn around and say, "let's go!" :)

If I have to "hang" myself this weekend, you can for sure do a little ride on the trainer for God's sake! Don't be such a p*ssy, get on it and ride like G would want you do!
Have a good weekend!

Moobs, haha~

Kim said...

hahahaha funny funny. i always pass a lot of women running who don't wear proper bras. or really it doesnt look like any bras.

sooo try having to get a 6 hour workout done and be at a bridal shower at 12:30 tomorrow. yeah. good times. nothing like hitting the trainer before sunrise! shit!

Dang,
Your training program is tougher than mine and your only doing half. Of course, if I trained more I wouldn't be the Onehourironman.

Blondie said...

I wish you had a picture of that guy getting arrested!!!!

TRI-james said...

That is why guys don't get cat calls very often - that is exactly what we would do!

Wes said...

I would like women to run without bras... just sain ;-) and what do cat calls in my direction mean? I run like a sissy? ROFL...

Keith said...

Once again, you reveal to me new depths. You must have unusual neighbours. Or an unusual neighbourhood.

(Bellies up to the betting counter.) I'm placing a big bet on Missy completing EVERYTHING by tee off on Sunday. I have faith!

Glaven Q. Heisenberg said...

O, man, if you and Shannon ever DO get down to doing it on the street, all sweaty-like, CALL ME first, because I wanna watch! Because that would be hawt with a capital "HAW"!(And yeah, you bet I'll be rubbing my moobs the whole time I'm watching, sister!)

Also, it's weird that your OCD compels you to call me out for running weird-numbered distances ... and yet here YOU are celebrating, not you 250th or 300th post ... but your 268th?

If you're getting disability money for your alleged OCD, time to start paying it back, sister!

Carolina John said...

that's a dump worthy of bullet points. geez, moobs and mowers and wet.

have a great weekend missy!!

Aka Alice said...

Wow...using the automatic start setting on the coffee pot...what a great idea. I keep waiting for Walter to get up and make me my coffee...and that strategy is not working all. that. well...hmmmm...GENIUS!

Cat callers have no interest in physical contact, so yes, I believe they'd run away like shamed puppies.

Have a great weekend!

Judi said...

24 hour tri?

Alisa said...

Man boobs ewww...I saw man junk on my ride Wednesday---it was gross!

I wish for dry weather for your weekend. I know I'm going to be praying to the weather gods here soon enough. October - June it sucks here.

Calyx Meredith said...

For the guy washing his car in the rain - it's either Type A personality or serial killer getting rid of the DNA (or both). And I'm totally thinking you should change the post title to "Moobs and Mowers". Watch how many search strings hit that!! Have a great weekend and GO TITANS!!

Al's CL Reviews said...

My friend is doing the 24 hours of Tri.

And another one is doing the Augusta70.6

Moobs, D has had that problem in the past. He has informed me it hurts. I would imagine so, since I can't understand why women would run in the improper bra, says the DDD lady.

Have a good weekend

Mel-2nd Chances said...

great mind dump... you've come across quite the adventures! Curious about the 24 hour tri. Hope the rain holds off, cuz i wouldn't wish 4 hours on the trainer on anyone ;)

Amanda said...

"Do people think cat calls while you're running really work? What would they do if you stopped, turned around and said, Let's GO, Right NOW? Would they cry and run away scared?"

ABSOLUTELY!!! Just like sometimes when i get yelled at on the bike, if i stop and yell back, they back the f*ck off.

aron said...

seriously WHY do people have to yell things at runners? its SO annoying

joyRuN said...

4 hours on a trainer would kill me. Hope it's a beautiful bike day for you!

Julie said...

Where do you live??? OH man, any one of those things would have my ENTIRE TOWN talking for months...

Mind you, I live way out in the booners -- nobody cat calls me, because:

1. I'm the only person in town who runs outside, and

2. Everybody knows who everyone else is.

LOL!!!!

Keith said...

And what Julie isn't telling you here is that if anyone should be so foolish as to cat call her, and interfere with her training plan (which is the real issue, not the sass) she's likely to come over there and totally kick their tail! All the while timing how long it took so she can add that many minutes on to the end of the workout. Grinning like mad the entire time.

Marci said...

Hope you got the rest of your workouts done! That 24hour tri sounds interesting. I talked to someone who is doing an ultra iron in Virginia. I never knew there was crazier than Iron, but ofcourse there is !

Chloe said...

Oh yes...the random sightings at 4am :) I'm tempted to running with my I-phone since I've moved to Panama City Beach (whoohoo...spring break!!) Have a great weekend!

Southbay Girl said...

the Titans are sucking...what is up!!

Why would you wash your car in the rain and I sure as hell wouldn't vacuum my car at 4am...what is wrong with people??

ShirleyPerly said...

You know, I've actually thought about washing my car when it's raining as it would save water and probably time too (ya know, just scrub and let nature do the rinsing off). But 4am??? No way!

Bouncing moobs, poor guy!
