I'm a copy cat
Yup, I'm a copy cat.. not real bad just kinda bad. I have seen people adding the 'link within' on their blog and I like it so I added it to mine and that makes me a copy cat. I'm also here to admit that I have borrowed the image over there
<------------------- from 'icanhascheezburger.com' cause it's cute and I needed an image. I realized that I prefer to read blogs where there is a big fat picture related to the post so I thought I'd start doing that except it's not easy finding an image for every post unless you take your own photos and I don't have a photocopier here OR a cat but I digress, what the hell was I talking about?
Ok so as promised yesterday I went out for a run. Wow, I am not smart. When I left the house I realized the battery in my Garmin was dead, 10 minutes into the run my ipod battery died which really pissed me off cause I had some new music I had downloaded just for the run. Around 2km in my new shoes started to hurt and my left hamstring started to feel like it was pulled so I slowed down and walked it home. Tomorrow I have my kick off spin class for the 1/2 ironman training group and if that doesn't get my butt back into gear, I dunno what will.
Life of an aspiring triathlete and there is a giveaway (go sign up) and a movie review for 'The Distance'. I did not sign up for the giveaway atlhough I should have cause I've had all the luck these days but I did go online and order the movie anyway. The review was good and I think the stories of real people will be good ones. I had bought a book before that was called "17 hours to Glory" and it was stories of people that completed Ironman. I thought that the stories of real people in the real world would be really good to read but was hugely disappointed that it turned out to be stories of all the champions. Maybe they should have named the book '8:15 to Glory'. Anyway I hope the movie will be a real life view of training. As if I don't get enough of that view from the blogs but that is the most motivating part for me and usually the most fun to read/watch.
Since I'm still on vacation I drove into Toronto, not ALL the way in because you know I don't drive in the big city, to meet a friend for lunch and go for a walk. She just got a new bike from the bike show and it's really purty and we are excited to do some riding together this upcoming season. She told me about a bike maintenance course that is held over a weekend, all day Saturday and Sunday where you can learn how to do basic repairs and maintenance and you can practice on bikes other than your own which in a way is good because I don't want to be pretend messing around with George. It's reasonably priced and local, well fairly local and they have it every other month. What does this mean for you? Well you won't see any hysterical blogging or tweeting if I have to change a tire (god forbid) anymore. I know one guy that will be happy about that.
And finally in more organizational news I have created a new email address to link to my blog, twitter and facebook. It will be nice to have all the notifications for them (and facebook) to go to another account and stop clogging up my inbox.
I know you're jealous of my exciting life. That's all I got.
