January Recap

I'm finally getting around to getting my January recap done.  I have just been busy with work and life and haven't really had much time to sit down and write a post.

Miles Run--47 miles.   Just short of the 50.  If there had been one more day in January, I would have made it.  Or if I had gotten just one more run in.  Oh well.  I should pay more attention to that as the month comes to a close.

Minutes on spin bike--225 minutes.  The 5:30 am class is just not working out for me.  Read:  I cannot get my ass out of bed at that hour.  I'm starting to do a little better get the spin minutes in on the days I don't have tennis but it's really a challenge to make myself go when there isn't a class to keep me accountable.  I'm not sure how to make this better.

Swim--8000 yds.  Fairly consistent on the once a week thing.

Tennis--6 hours

Races--none but did get to meet a pretty cool guy doing a pretty cool thing.  Gary Allen near the beginning of his run 500 miles to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project.

Things I'm Loving

~Salted Carmel Gu--I guess I'm late to the party on this one, but that stuff is GOOD!
~This song:

I'm sorry, but who doesn't love minions??  

~Tweets from the Olympics in Sochi with the hashtag #sochiproblems.  Seriously, if you are not following this, you should be.  It's worth at least 3 or 4 giant laughs every day.   Here's a few images from those tweets.

Second funniest hashtag?  #costaseye  Especially funny to the eye doctor.  I hope he has someone to help him with that. If no, I'd be happy to take a quick flight out to Russia to bring him some proper medication.  Jeez.

~Dairy Queen is open again!  So happy.  New favorite treat is peanut buster parfait but instead of the peanuts, I have them use peanut butter sauce.  It's like a melted peanut butter cup on ice cream.

~These girls:

I feel like I've found some running friends that I fit in with.  If not speed-wise (cause they are all so much faster than I), at least personality-wise.  I just met two of them IRL but feel like they are old friends already.  Can one of you please move to Boothbay and start doing triathlons?

2014 is off to a very good start and I can't wait to see what the rest of the year brings.

See, I knew I liked you...salted caramel GU is the BEST!!!!!

And how cool to make those connections with girls - regardless of speed. Nothing cooler than that!

Well, other than the aforementioned salted caramel GU of course!

You are right, our whole group of friends is the awesome-est! If I moved and did triathlons with you I would drown which would be unfortunate. We will have to stick with boring old dry land road races. :-)
