This and That

I have great video of Tassie doing her latest trick but we have been unable to locate the camera cord. Augh! Those things are so easy to misplace and it's driving me insane. I have found about 9 different cell phone chargers, all to cell phones that are no longer in use.

Don't worry, though, the trick isn't all that exciting. Good for our little puppy who Marty describes as "the cute, dumb, really nice blonde girl at your high school." She also likes to kiss boys AND girls. Tramp! :D

I'm super proud of Marty for pulling off a 3rd place in the Open division at White Lake sprint #2 this past Sunday. We had a good bike ride Saturday morning so it's not like he was all shaved and tapered. I may or may not have told him he needed to get his head out of his ass after his performance earlier this year at Azalea, so I'm happy he's starting to regain his fitness. Back in the day, he would crush his competition.

Sunday I met up with Kari for a nice run at Umstead. I may or may not have talked her ear off. The run went by super fast and we held a solid pace in the hills. Then I hit Trader Joe's thinking everyone would be at Mother's Day brunch, but no, that place was still packed. I don't think I've ever been there when it's not packed. I also had to wait in the corner for the clock to turn 12 so I could buy a six pack of beer for Marty. I felt like a lush and smiled proudly, hee hee.

Thank you so much for your comment. I too suffer from blog comparison and it makes me feel like there is something wrong with me for trying to do really well at the IM distance on my training volume. Recently I have been reading blogs of ladies training for their first IM and how much they train blows me away and made me question my approach. Thanks for your vote of confidence! It is so nice to have you as a cheerleader.

Why is it that I can NEVER locate the piece of electronical equipment that I need? Seriously! You and I are in the same boat, my friend. I heard that you guys had a great run - EXCELLENT! Kari is awesome :) Yeah for Marty!

hee hee on the beer thing. I remember not being able to buy booze in NC until noon on Sunday (if at all, in some places... is it dictated by county or state? Don't remember). Keep up the great work!
