Random Fact #1 - I may or may not have an addiction...
I cleaned out my purse a couple of weeks ago and found this collection of lip balm. I love me some lip balm. And why actually by it, when it comes in your race packets and you can pick up a tube at almost any race expo???
Seriously, I have almost completely stopped wearing my actual lip liner/lipstick combo and only wear the balm. (Shocking, I know!)
|Is this a sign of a problem, or just a sign of soft lips? :-)|
Random Fact #2 - Okay, so I might have two addictions...
I have started drinking coffee...real coffee. And, I love it. I have been drinking the fru-fru coffee for years. It started with mochas in college at the local coffee house (way before Starbucks made it to Aggieland). Later, I progressed to the skinny vanilla latte and the occasional cinnamon dolce lattes. And for the past year or so, I have converted almost completely to coffee-flavored, coffee. Sure, I try the flavored creamers, but coffee with skim or half & half is a-okay, too.
|Yes, yes you do!|
Randon Fact #3 - I am loving trail running!
Yes, you have to look out for roots. Yes, you will get dirty. Ahhhh, but yes you will enjoy nature!
|Dirty shoes...clean is boring!|
|And really, how often do you see this on the sidewalks?|
Random Fact #4 - I may or may not be a hoarder
Okay, so it isn't as bad as what you see on the television show...seriously, I've only watched a few seconds of the show and it was disturbing! But, I do get sentimental about certain things. One thing I love to hold onto is my race bibs. The hubs and I have all of our race bibs and finally figured out something to do with them...garage decor! The Hubs has recently started a home brewing hobby, so the garage is slowly becoming his man cave. We needed something on the walls and why not incorporate the other hobby?
|Part of the new garage decor...poster frame & bibs, easy peasy!|
And, I am very sentimental about the kid's art work. At one time, I had a few Rubbermaid containers of stuff that the Kiddo had created. Then of course the Muchkin came along and I had even more art work! I finally went through all of it and kept only the most special (to me) pieces. Now, each kid has a Rubbermaid container with their name on it and I place the extra special stuff in there and toss the rest.
|How could a parent NOT be sentimental about something like this??? Awwwww!|
Random Fact #5 - I am NOT a beer drinker
To be honest, training for a 70.3 does not leave much time for alcohol. Between training in the wee hours of the morning in the heat and watching my nutrition, I don't partake very much. But since the Hubs is very into his brewing hobby and is always trying new beers, I figure I could try some new ciders. I do like cider! (and Mike's Hard Lemonade. and Margaritas.) So here are a couple I tried recently...
|Branching out and trying new things...|
I have to admit, I was not a fan of the Woodchuck Fall Cider...I love fall spices and I like to eat pumpkin pie, but I don't like to drink it. Seriously, I don't even drink the Pumpkin Spice Latte! Now, the Hornsby's Hard Crisp Cider, I loved! But on that note, I don't care for their Pear cider. I dunno, it's just not my thing.
So that's it for this week. This weekend will be full of training fun - a 9 mile run on Saturday and a 3 hour bike followed by a 30 minute run on Sunday. Most of all, I am looking forward to hanging out with the family and chillaxin'!
Are you racing this weekend? Any big plans for weekend fun? Give me the deets!
