My boyfriend started his own blog today. He's not training for a triathlon-- I think he just wants to be more active.

I repeat... he's not training for a triathlon... yet.

I've noticed all of this is quite contageous. I bet by this time next year, he'll either be sucked it... or will have dumped me because I'm insane.

Either way. Go, Ryan!


I ran a little this morning. If I havn't said it before, my running is truly pathetic. I was going to run to the Y and then use the treadmill, but somehow, on my way to the Y, I just kept going. This was perhaps a bad idea. I didn't realize how hot it was... or windy. Trusty weather.com told me it felt like 87 degrees. Add running head-on into 20 mph winds and it feels more like 95.

The sky grew darker and darker and I just BEGGED it to open up and pour on me. But instead I recieved an insulting 2 drops of rain.

I'm pretty convinced I'm the slowest runner on earth. I used to be pretty good. I can't remember my exact times or anything, but I was definitely in the top 15% of the runners on our massive high school cross country team. And now I can't seem to run 10 minutes without stopping.

I only ran for 20 minutes today. I stopped 3 times to catch my breath and pray for rain. Then I dragged my pathetic self home.


It's funny how often I get asked about my training. I didn't realize people were so interested. I like to pretend that it's because they are so insanely impressed by what I'm doing.

I recieved the funniest text from my mom this afternoon.

"I am at park watching bikers do u need gloves these must be serious bikers"

I laughed and responded that no, I didn't need gloves. But I DO need a helmet. Yes, yes... SHAME on me for riding my bike without a helmet! But the last time I owned a helmet was elementary school. I'm working on it.

So now I feel all bad for setting a horrible example. So here is my very own PSA on why you should wear helmets....

You should wear a helmet because helmets prevent things like this...

Also, if you're WEARING your bicycle helmet, then small animals can't be taking up residence in it...

And the final reason to wear a helmet... it makes your helmet happy...

So go be safe!!!
