Kiwis and chalk at the gym
I had a blog visitor from New Zealand!!!the magical land where I want to run away to and live. In my Samolicious fantasy mind I wish it was Mr Central Otago Winemaker himself but sigh it probably was just a fun kiwi blog surfer. I hope my friend comes back! I heart NZ!
Happy Birthday Cori! one day late. I love you!!
now that all my randomness is out of the way...or is it? if you don't hang around very often, you might not know I am training for a triathlon. it's a sprint distance so you can tone your laughing down some. it's in september but it has been kind of funny so far. when people hear I'm doing this, first they look at me like "you're joking, right?" then they look me over head to foot. LOL. I think that's funny. underneath this insulating layer of pudge are some awesome muscles. anyway, yesterday while doing my bike workout, I looked around the gym and discovered that I was the palest person in the joint. by a long shot. I'm talking I looked like chalk compared to these people. so then I thought I'd share my pale weirdness with my friend Suzannah and sent her a text message. however it went astray to someone else. lol. then I resent it and it made it's way to the right person. I'm still trying to talk her into doing the tri with me but so far nothing. oh well. yesterday I rode about 14 miles in 50 minutes which isn't bad. thank goodness for my ipod. I was fading fast until planet rock and the spice girls came on.
p.s. the person who got the stray text message thought it was funny and had a very helpful suggestion.
