Five Things Friday

Five Things and absolute random things I am thinking about today.

1-Lola was watching a cartoon the other day when this commercial came on. My first thought is this a joke. My internal conversation was interrupted by Lola's squeals of delight Mommy can you get me that? Of course Lola, of course...I mean look how happy THIS little gal is to play with some fake dog doo.


2-It's been about two weeks into the triathlon "off season" for me and it's been nice to just do what I want with no schedule to follow. I've changed up my diet and been hitting the weights. Lots of running, short runs though. My body is responding quickly and I am happy to be putting some muscle back on even if I did lose a lot of strength over the last season.

It's my goal to be rockin' a killer 6 (or 4) pack for Ragnar in January and of course, there is the little Abtastic Rev3 challenge I've got to be ready for in time for Knoxville in Spring.

3-Speaking of Ragnar...this whole adventure is less than 2 months away and it blows my mind that it is almost here already. I cannot wait to finally meet everyone face to face. This is going to be such an amazing experience.
As for costumes, I have a vision of what I want to'll all come together soon! Now to find the perfect ammo belt!

4-Speaking of bullets...I'd like to lay a few into this sleep schedule of mine. Now, I am up early early as it is--3am--since I need to ready to rock n roll to teach boot camp at 5am, but with this time change I've been getting up every day at 2:00 am. I mean, really...COME ON! I think I am going to stay up really late one night this weekend just to try to reset my body clock. Ever the optimist though, I have been using that quiet time alone to get work done and be productive.

5-Sunday is Veteran's Day. Make sure you take the time to thank a veteran for their service to our country. You were able to vote on Tuesday because of them. You are able to complain/celebrate the results because of them.

I am planning my own little long run on Sunday and will be honoring those who are no longer with us. Running and triathlon has brought so many amazing people into my life, people like Bob and Nancy Kelly. So on Sunday, I will especially be thinking of Nancy & Bob Kelly, and Captain Christopher Cash, who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2004.

That dog is something else!! With a new baby the time change is really just a blur but with my 3 year-old...yeah she is all thrown off! No fun!! Hopefully you can get yourself back on schedule!

Thanks for the reminder to run for our veterans on Sunday!

3AM?! Wow, I can't even imagine getting up that early on a semi-frequent basis.

I don't even know what to say about doggie doo but ewww.

I am so looking forward to off season, 8 days!

Ragnar is a blast! You'll love it!
