So I'm feeling a bit like a cheesy sap lately. Aw, shucks.
Last weekend, I had my super fun race followed by pancakes with friends, and then on Sunday I headed to a baby shower for a tri buddy and got lots of great time with some awesome girls.
|Some of the coolest--not to mention fastest!--chicks I know|
This weekend, I had a date night with Matt on Friday where we went to Michael Symon's local place, B Spot, and I ate myself silly. I got a big fat cheeseburger, some amazing Lola fries (seasoned with rosemary....pure heaven) and a nice fat beer. It was delicious and worth every single calorie.
Then, we went to go see this, FINALLY:
Not only do I not risk losing my APUSH Teacher Card after having two weeks go by before I see it, but it was AMAZING. If Daniel Day-Lewis does NOT get an Oscar for this, there's something seriously wrong with the universe.
Yesterday we had Breakfast with Santa, to which the five year old was still not *quite* sure about the big guy, but Little Bean LOVE!LOVE!LOVES! Santa:
|No fear, whatsoever|
|Bug isn't entirely sure, and Bean's Santa's BFF|
Then last night, we got to head to a friend's party where Santa made yet ANOTHER appearance! This time, Bug warmed up a little bit and actually (for the first time ever, I think) sat on Santa's lap:
Heading to the Cleveland Triathlon Club Winter Banquet tonight to see a few more cool tri peeps! So this will round out the weekend quite nicely. While Matt's at the Browns/Chief's game, I'm going to head to a friend's house to do a combined playdate/make a meal for our new Mommy friend Karen who just had baby #3--a little girl! Yay!
Somehow in there managed to squeeze in a good run with Ana, a good solid trainer session in the basement, and a swim in which I even busted out a few 100s with a halfway respectable time. Oh, yeah, and one more thing....
...I'm down 9.5 pounds.
So I'm feeling pretty good and pretty excited for the tri season! This whole "train-like-a-triathlete" thing is making me pretty happy. I didn't realize that running less might be the key to having more fun with workouts. Further proof that I do, in fact, have "exercise-induced ADD" and that I am a triathlete at heart, fo' sho'.
