Yes - yesterday was all about Ironman... & I still have some Ups & Downs on that, but a lot on some other weekend events...
So let's pick up where I normally am, shall we?
UP // Got my Peach Green Tea Lemonade on Friday....
DOWN //.... but was told that Pumpkin is coming in earlier & that will be the end of PGTL. I need to suck 'em down fast. It wont be long till its over.
DOWN // PGTL season went really really fast
UP // Tried my first time at cold brewing coffee for homemade iced coffee....
DOWN //.... didn't taste that much of a difference to go through all the hassle. Back to my K-cups & putting it in the fridge for me. #timesaver
UP // Since I wont be using my mason jars for cold brewing coffee, I now have 4 beautiful jars to use for some other fancy reason. Pinterest, here I come.
UP // Kentucky State Fair! ... Love all the free testing that they have there....
DOWN // .... Found out I'm going deaf. Not even joking. I could tell I'm not hearing that great lately. Things sound really muffled & I have to say, 'Huh?' or "What?" or just fake like I heard a few too many times. Yep - I really can't hear. They said I heard NONE of the high pitched sounds - only low pitch. They said that's usually opposite of what happens with age. So does that mean when I get older, my low pitch goes & I'm totally deaf? .... great....
DOWN // Strollers at the State Fair. I get people need them & don't want to carry their babies all day long... but when people just use them as offense strategies to get down aisles & ram them into your legs... I want to kick their strollers over... saving the child first, of course! I'm not THAT mean.
|if one more stroller hit me in the back of my legs|
UP // Didn't eat one bit of fair food. It actually all sounded disgusting to me.
DOWN // It started down pouring when we left. We waited for the rain to slow down & then decided we were so hungry that we didn't care any more. We walked about 1.5 miles in the rain.... My hair afterwards. #outofcontrolfrizz
UP // We went to a new restaurant... I got some yummy pasta with veggies all over it - it was delish.
DOWN // my salad had bacon on it. Nope nope nope. #vegetarianproblems .....
UP // .... luckily the waiter seen me just staring sadly at my salad & brought me a new one, bacon-free
UP // Working in extreme heat in the Ironman sucked up all the hydration I had going - so no needing to use the porta pots! #perspective
|my reaction about porta pots|
UP // the comments on the Ironman Louisville page makes me so happy .... so many comments about how good the volunteers were. Even a few from women talking about the tent area I was at. Makes me feel like we rocked it.
DOWN // my clothes I wore at the Ironman - I took to wash last night.... they were still damp from sweat. EWWW
UP // Did I mention I now have a Ironman Volunteer shirt? My new favorite t-shirt.
UP // My 2nd favorite shirt - my shirt I got at the fair. I've seen runners wear these in races & I never knew where they got them... they were selling them in a booth at the fair & I was on top of that. Bring on my next race so I can wear it.
DOWN // cancer does suck
UP // The best name for a web site ever - cancerisstupid.org ...
What's your favorite race shirt?
Do you have stroller injuries?
