Dear Readers, Friends, Creepy Internet Friends and Fellow FREAKS....

It's not you, it's ME! We've all heard that before, right? Well, that is the case here as well. I have enjoyed my time here but I'm afraid it must come to a close. This is not a ploy for you to beg me to stay. I've been thinking about it for a while. I guess I just feel like everything has run its course, at this point. While I still have so much to say, I am finding that it (at times) has become more of a job than a joy....as you can tell since I haven't posted in over a week. Like anything, I want to enjoy it and if it becomes a job, I best be gettin' paid for this shiz.


I have had the pleasure of meeting a few of you real live and in person. That has been the best part - or even just the hey, aren't you Missy? At a race. That is fun. I kinda feel like I've grown up with so many of you in these endurance and triathlon endeavors. I love the support, advice and general good times that this has provided. I still hope to meet some of yous someday...at a race or at a ride.

My hope is that, at one time or another, I made you laugh until you shot your drink out your nose. If I did that to you one time, then my job here is complete and that makes me happy. Oh, and if I ever do get that great book or writing gig...you better buy it;)
Here's a few links to some of my favorite posts over the years, for those that you may have missed. These are just some of my fav's from the archives.

All my best to you and never let me hear you say I CAN'T...I find nothing more irritating. If you're ever hurting for blog material, give me a buzz or I can guest post - I stills gots lots of ideas. For anyone that wants to keep in touch, my email is on my info page! And that, my friends, is all she wrote...

SHERRY said...

This is sad, but I can totally understand. You will be missed, that's for sure! Take good care, race hard... hope to catch up with you at a race some day. :-)

FLATOUT JIM said...

I can't believe it. Who will make me laugh on Wednesdays now?

Carolina John said...

Matty O said...

real good. I just started following you and loved your writing style and stories! Damnit!

Understand your view 100%

Rock on girl!

Diana said...

Way to make a crappy start to my day biatch!
I'm kidding! (kind of)
I understand-been thinking of this road myself. I've done it with Facebook and have thought of blog land. When my RKC is done-who knows? Right now it still gives me some pleasure to be able to bitch/whine/complain out to everyone.
I will be in touch for some last minute "calm-my-nerves", "make me laugh till I fart", "make me snort dt dew out my nose" type advice before I leave on the 24th!
It's been a pleasure reading all about your endeavors!

Dave said...

Today is a sad day....I had a feeling it was coming...but none the less...sad...

Carly said...

*sniff* I am going to miss you! I totally understand. I have enjoyed reading about your adventures and I have been in awe of how you tackle a challenge.

You blog was also gut busting funny. I am really going to miss Semi-Wordless Wednesday. Yes, I have shot liquids out of my nose several times while visiting.

Best of luck Missy!

Mel-2nd Chances said...

awwwwww, sad day for sure, but your blog, so your decision. :) You'll be missed around here, but hope you stick around on FB so we can still kinda follow your endeavors! All the best!

Tyger Lily said...

You will be missed! I am a blog reader, not a blog writer, so kudos to you, and all the other peeps, I lurk around. I have never even had the desire to start a blog. Too much work! You are hilarious! Best wishes and really do hope to meet you at a tri or bike event some day :)

ShirleyPerly said...

Well, all good things must come to an end eventually. And I have also thought about doing the same many times recently (after all, there is much more to life than blogging, right?).

Best of luck to you in all your future endeavors!

ONEHOURIRONMAN said...

I still owe you my book. I know where to find you when I get it published.

I know what you mean on the it's more work than fun at times. It can get tiring. But my main purpose is selfish, I use it as my training diary, so I will probably be around for a while.

Don't be a stranger, put in some guest comments at times.

Cheers!! (Oh and thanks for the Swiftwick and L-glutamine tips)

Jeff - DangleTheCarrot said...

You'll be missed in the blogosphere Missy! Thanks for the laughs!

Bill said...

While I relate to your feelings of the whole blog thing sometimes getting to be a chore, I'll be missing it anyway. Yours was one of my "must read" blogs. I loved your humor and what you had to say. Just remember, you can always come back if you get re-inspired after a layoff.

Xavi Garcia said...

Scary but understandable...good luck!!

Cheers from Hong Kong!

KK said...

Melissa said...

Sniff sniff :-( I've really enjoyed reading your blog, you are a wonderful writer and you crack my sh*t up!

I've been reading for over a year...thank you for doing the blog. I'll miss your stories for sure!

Diana said...

PS/ You're gonna miss my "snatch"!
Dedicated today's snatch day just for you honey!

Marcy said...

Love you baby! I know I haven't been around these parts a lot the past year but you're blog was one that I ALWAYS loved and looked forward to reading. There was a post sometime ago where you wrote (something along the lines) "if you're looking for tips on how to get faster or looking for some kind of motivation, you're NOT going to find it here. But if you want to talk about farting, crotch burn, or anything like that you've come to the right place" And that's exactly the reason why I *hearted* it :-)

Can we at least play bingo together at the retirement
home? Lol

Marcy said...

I meant "your blog". Look at my English skillz. Gawd.

Beth said...

Thanks for all the cooterbone laughs, TITS references, pee, poop and d-bag stories :)

Scott and I always got a kick out of your posts "what's she gonna say next??"

email: lifeafter40isgreat@gmail.com

MCM Mama said...

You'll be missed. Who's gonna make me spit coffee on my keyboard now that you and Marcy are both done blogging?

Please keep entertaining me on FB! And someday, come up for a visit and we'll show you all the fun DC has to offer.

Kendra said...

I've definitely enjoyed reading your blog. Sorry it's not fun for you anymore but I totally get that. You'll be missed!

Aimee (I Tri To Be Me) said...

It's been great reading your blog! I wish you the best in your future endeavors! :)

Keith said...

Another good bloggee blogged out. I loved reading what you had to say, and any time you feel the need to say more on a topic, send it to me; I'd be delighted and honoured to put it on mine.

Best wishes for whatever you do next. Don't forget to stop in and say hi next time you're in Calgary.

Aka Alice said...

Oh. so. sad. But I totally get it (dude...had to throw in the SoCal lingo for ya, cuz I know you like it that way). But seriously, I will miss you and all the burp, fart, shiz, pee stories. It doesn't matter to me how many times we tell them, they never get old.

Take care girl!

(LOL...word verification is "afessup"...hmmmm)

Big Daddy Diesel said...

I am sad to see you go, but I understand why. I will miss your blog, I will be keeping in touch, I always wanted to meet you, even tried down at TTT, maybe we will run into each other at a race someday.

Keith said...

It's driving me crazy to see the comments stuck at 39 on the odd times I drop by, because I still haven't removed you from the button that loads a whole bunch of blogs at once.

MrDaveyGie said...

Hmmm, I missed out on a good blog I see, well happy endorphins to ya.

Ryan said...

I still talk to you on fb, I just wanted to leave another fucking comment!
