Today wasn't one of them. We decided last minute to race and OLY about 1.5 hours from Columbus. We like to race way more than training, so why not? Plus our favorite racing family was going to be there which is always an added bonus! :)
Woke up to 70 degrees and 100% humidity. Yaaaaaay! Love the humidity. And the heat. So fun! (insert the sarcastic smile any time).
Long story short - the water was NOT 75 degrees and if it is, USAT needs to change their rules on allowing wetsuits under 76. I found out the hard way that it was WAY too hot to race with my TYR on. The swim sucked. I had nothing on the bike. And then run - let's just say I got through it - hot and hellish. It wasn't pretty.
Some days you've got it...
Some days you don't.
Today was one of them that I just didn't have it. Oh well. Don't have times and quite honestly, that's fine. I raced naked again and came in 3rd of 4 in my AG. That was the highlight of the race... trust me. :)
We've gotten some pretty bad news about my grandpa recently. I won't go into the details, but if you can just keep him, my grandma and my family in your thoughts, I'd be forever grateful!
BDD nominated me for an award. He's cool like that! I have to answer the following and then make some other people do it too. I can handle that. More random facts from yours truly...
My favorite cartoon character is…Wiley Coyote. But when will he figure out that the road runner is always going to win?
My favorite thing to photograph is…my dogs, and me and the hubs. :)
My favorite thing to cook is… Pretty much anything. I love to try new recipes and cook just about every night. I even make meals for my mom for Christmas that we freeze and I portion out for she and my dad to have throughout the winter. I'm not much of a griller though - that's Tom's job.
My favorite way to exercise is…As long as I'm outside... I'm happy. For the most part (note, today's race wasn't a favorite). My favorite workouts are probably the evening rides with Tom in the summer. Nothing better!
My favorite movie is… The Notebook, Elizabethtown, Legally Blonde
My favorite article of clothing is… Flipflops... they count right? If not, jeans and a fleece.
My favorite flower is…Gerbera Daisy
My favorite breakfast is…I'm not much of a morning person, but I do love me some french toast with extra powdered sugar.
