- Today is my fabulous mom's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMA! As far as mom's go, I hit the jackpot with mine... not only has she been a fabulous mom, she's a great friend and for a girl, that's an amazing thing to share with your mom. I'm very fortunate to live nearby, talk to her
once, twice, multiple times a day, laugh with her, cry with her, and share life with her. Hope the anniversary of your 29th birthday was a good one (and look at what a great daughter I am... didn't even type what anniversary it is!)
- My sister, who also happens to be one of my very best friends (I'm a lucky girl) and her husband are starting a very exciting journey in their lives. They are starting the process of adoption. I don't talk about my family's personal stuff much on my blog, but if you can do me a favor and just keep them in your thoughts, I'd be forever grateful. It's going to be a long process, with lots of i's to dot and t's to cross. And their success in being matched with a birth mother will be very much in their own hands. If you know of ANYONE who might be looking for an adoptive parent for their child or someone else's, please let me know. They are going to be amazing parents (and I'm a little biased when I think I'll rock at being an Aunt!)
- My twin from another mother and I were texting the other day and she totally cracked me up. I was telling her that I needed to find the motivation to get out for my 11 mile run. Her response was "Just think of it as a date with your husband and you iPod. Time to perfect you ability to memorize and repeat lyrics". Great advice. But her follow up was even better "I like to break out in song and dance while running. Makes me feel like I'm part of a musical staring ME!!!". Oh my gosh... this is why I love you!
- I made it through that run, albeit without an iPod, but I can't confirm or deny that I didn't sing to myself at some point throughout the run.
- My Ironman Cycle post (found here) seems to have hit the right chord with a lot of people at just the right time. I hope that it helps some of you. I know that I'll go back and re-read a lot of my own advice as my journey continues.
- Tom and I (okay, maybe it's just me, but whatever) are obsessed with the Race Across America. Last year at this time, I was propping my eyelids open in Annapolis, waiting to Team Type 1 to come in. It was an exciting time, and although they didn't break their own record, it was exciting seeing the guys come across the finish line in first again. Although they don't have a team in the race this year, I've been stalking the results to see if any of the 8-man teams would be able to break the record. It's going to be close... but I think TT1 will keep it. Awesome... especially knowing the tail winds that these guys might have had propelling them through, oh, I don't know, the WHOLE state of Kansas. Tell me that diabetics can't do something...
- Speaking of diabetics, did I tell you the guys are running across the country? Just because they can? 10 guys from Team Type 1 will be starting the trek in October. I can't wait to tell you more about it. 15 days of running, starting in California, ending in NYC on World Diabetes Day. It's not a death sentence in our family... it's opportunity!
- I'm racing again this weekend. So excited... a local Olympic. And I'm racing naked again. What do I have to lose?
- And then we're heading to the casino. We might have a gambling problem (although to my defense, I spend like $50 all night playing penny slots and am giddy like a school girl). Oh... and we booked a trip to Vegas in September. Post REV3 Full / Interbike. Loving it!
