November 6, 2010

So I got some very good news today. Remember when I mentioned this blog is going to be back into triathlon mode and that exciting things where happening? Well, I signed up for IMFL. Double fist pump! I am so freaking excited that I can't stand it. (note to self, bookmark this page and refer back in Aug, Sept and Oct) So you, as a reader, will be able to go through all of my highs and lows though out the next seven months. And there will no doubt be a bunch of bitching rants thrown in there as well.



But just the thought of crossing that finish line with my friends and family cheering me on gives me goose bumps. So hang tight guys, it's going to be an interesting ride!

Ok - this time of year in my hood is interesting. The snowbirds are flying out as college kids are rolling in. Oh yes, it's spring break time. A fist pumping good time. No doubt that where ever I go, I will have Iphone in hand ready to take some crazy pictures. But today on my run I ran into these guys:



I LOVE LOVE LOVE Westies. I would like to consider my parents westie more of a sister then a dog. But as I was chatting with the older man who was walking the dogs, a car pulled into the driveway next to us and 5 drunk kids literally fell out. All dressed in full spring break gear: cowboy hat, short shorts, tank tops, and Sonic cups full of who knows what. Oh yeah - it was about 45 out today. Awesome. Just a preview of the next month.

Hope everyone is having a great week!!

Hey - found your blog from IronBob's. Good luck with IMFL! I got my IM there in 2009 - it was awesome. I'm planning on volunteering this year & signing up to re-do in 2011.
