"My, it's humid here"

Will, our homestay, got here safe and sound. We decided to go and check out the gulf first thing. Right when we got to the end of the boardwalk, Will looks at me and says "My, it's humid here". Yes. Yes it is.

I'm afraid to say that it's going to be a hot one this year. It's about 3:30 right now, and about 85 outside. Hot, sunny, and humid. Awesome. So Will decided that to acclimate himself to the weather, all of the vents in his room are closed, the fan is off, and the windows are open. Needless to say, his room is like a sauna!

But he is an awesome homestay and we're having a great time. I think he's enjoying the fresh fish and stone crab claws which Jason has been cooking every night as well as meeting my tri friends. He was surprised of how large of a group we have and how friendly everyone is. Well, we tend to dis-associate ourselves with assholes - so I guess we did a good job. Just kidding. Kind of.

Training is going well here. My running is still feeling awesome and my biking is as well. But I did find a new nutrition drink, FRS. I guess they have it in several different forms - but I have the powered mix. They come in small packets and are great 'natural energy' boosters. It has ZERO sugar and only 10 calories per serving. I just like the way they taste and how good they make me feel - plus Lance is all about it so it must be good. Right :) Check it out if you are looking for something new to sip on mid-afternoon besides ...ugh...coke or something like that.

i LOVE FRS. I HATE how expensive it is! Someone gave me a bottle of the concentrate, and hubs and I downed it in just a few days. It made me feel amazing! But this poor college kid can't keep up with the $16 per bottle, ouch!

I am hoping for Will's and my benefit that some of the forecast models I have seen are true. 50F at start and 72F high. But, sadly today's extended doesn't support those models.

I'm glad your homestay made it safe & sound! I'm actually sitting here writing this in a cleopatra costume. I'm not sure what that says about me that I'm about to leave for a party but I'm checking blogs before I leave!! This is crazy! Have fun!
