a nice responsible way to spend a saturday night

So some people, like Rae and Wil, were probably getting a good night's rest for the Indy Mini and the Flying Pig. Some, like DaisyDuc or CurlySu were probably relaxing and recovering from the CTC duathlon or the Wildflower Triathlon.

What was I doing last night?

Celebrating with my chicas, cuz M's gettin' hitched next week!

Up 'til 4am after eating lots of bad munchies and consuming some beverages....seriously hurtin' today, and somehow I played 2 games (3-4, yay) and I might try to get in a little spin somehow tonight. Ugh. Good thing I don't do this often. These pics are the more "family friendly" of the bunch...:)

Why, oh why, can't I just smile for pictures like normal people do?
Kim will appreciate these pics, I bet!

Congrats to all that raced this weekend! Happy to report I did my 3 hour ride and 40 minute run yesterday, before the debauchery began.

Up this week: Lotsa training of course, and also squeezing in the following things:

1. Monday: A field trip with my students to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum tomorrow for a special program on "Music as a Social Force." Pretty sweet.
2. Tuesday: Going to hear an amazing speaker through Facing History: the only American to remain in Rwanda during the 1994 genocide. I'm really looking forward to it.
3. Thursday: A much needed trip to the Chef and Mrs. Cook.
4. Friday: M's rehearsal dinner
5. M's wedding!

So, this should be to balance the training with all this stuff. Ahhh, such is life. I have a feeling I'm gonna be cuttin' down on the blogging this week. So if I don't make comment's it's not cuz I'm hatin'. (Why am I such a gangsta tonight?) :)

BTW--I'm not sure why I went bonkers when this fun little Madge song came on last night (as I tried to recreate the video on the dance floor), but I am sure that I hope I look like that when I'm 47 years old. Sheesh!

Have a great week!

TryAthlete said...

Haha. Those poses are hilarious. What do you think your Wisconsin finishing pose will be?

DaisyDuc said...

Fun pics...your eyes look crazy red in that first pic! Well I think we all have our drinking poses...mine generally include my tongue hanging out :-) Aghh, good times!

Well you will find away to fit in what you need to. Heck you somehow fit in one long ass training session on Saturday with everything else you had going on! Busy maybe, but sounds like a fun week!

Tri-Geek Kahuna said...

Where do we go for the non-family-friendly pics?

Tammy said...

I love that you didn't "smile like normal people"... you look great, and your personality really shined through. Makes things more interesting than a boring ol' smile :)

Pixie said...

Girl, you are so funny with your poses in those pictures. I have the same disease, I CAN NOT just smile in pictures. I stick my tongue out EVERY TIME. It's a reflex. LOL.

Great pics though!!

Kim said...

CANT STOP LAUGHING ALOUD! I think I laughed so hard, I peed a little bit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Too bad we don't live closer to each other to party and make ridiculous faces!!!

Chris said...

Haha! From the pictures, it looks like it was an awesome night out on the town!

greyhound said...

Into your hands we place the future of the country. I LOVE IT.

Rae said...

Have fun at the wedding this weekend!
