So for lent my plan was to not purchase anything other then the necessities. Well, after some sole searching I realized I really don't 'shop' that much. Where I live, there are not a ton of shops except for a bunch of cool little 'speciality' shops where tourists go to purchase a shirt for $50. (suckas) And the only store I really like I get a pretty sweet discount (thanks to the boyfriend). As I was thinking about this I also thought about checking facebook. I grabed my laptop and started logging in. Bingo. Facebook. At work I jump on it when I'm on hold - or if I'm bored at home I'll just search around. Kind of an addiction. So I will not be on facebook until Easter. I'm just hoping that I can pull myself away from the 'network of friends'. But that is what lent is about? Right?
Training has been going excellent. I've been swimming a ton lately and decided to pull back for the next few weeks so that I can focus on the biking. So far so good. I just got in some killer netflix - one being Surfwise and I've also downloaded some killer pod casts from Zen and the Art of Triathlon so I'm ready for some time on the trainer. We also have long rides outside planned for the next few weekends until New Orleans(!).
Running is going well - we have a 1/2 marathon this weekend in my 'hood'. The Seaside Half Marathon. This was my first 1/2 ever last year. And since then I've done 3 others, one full, and a ton of tris. Who would have known? Anyway - we have a huge local group who is doing the race which ALWAYS makes it fun - specially the post party.

who is a totally awesome marathoner, the guy who was booted off the Biggest Loser actually lied about doing a freaking marathon. What? How could you lie about that? Biggest Loser producers! How could you? I mean - it kind of irked me about the guy who said he was going to do an Ironman and then threw out some random distances. But to flat out lie and say that you did a whole marathon when in fact the producers "only drove us three miles" per the guys wife - so that they could get the finishing shot they needed. That is absolutely amazing that he lost all of that weight and now is living a healthy lifestyle. But come on now. Check this out.
Last night I had dinner with 'Little Chloe' - my fav 13 year old!!
I am so proud of her - she made the tennis team!!
