If you’ve been keeping up with my blog, then you know I’m a month and a half away from my first triathlon!!! I told you all about my first brick workout (2 portions of the triathlon sandwiched together: swim + bike OR bike + run). Today I did an abbreviated version of all 3 portions of the tri. First, I biked to school as a warmup. When I got there I did 750m in the pool (that’s the exact length of the actual triathlon), then I biked back home at a faster pace rather than a warm-up pace (5km; the triathlon is 20km) and then went on a little jog with Rocky (1.5 miles, as opposed to 5km in the tri). And I feel really good. I feel like I could do this thing tomorrow, so I don’t think I’ll have any problem at all with the race next month! Hooray!
When I headed out the door on my jog I grabbed my camera – and I’m glad I did, because I came across a couple random things.
My shadow (and Rocky’s rear-end) jogging along.
Random Thing #1
Clearly Rocky was intrigued
What the crap??? I guess someone doesn’t like pennies because I found probably at least a dollar’s worth on the side of the road! No, I didn’t grab them up. But I probably would have if it had been closer to home Chris is always throwing away pennies (he thinks it’s “chump change”), and as a result I’ve started a penny jar so I can collect all of his unwanted change. Maybe one of these days I’ll have enough for a tank of gas or something….but probably not…..maybe some froyo, at least???
Random Thing #2
How would you like to be the mail-man/lady who gets to put mail inside the decapitated statue-thingy? I’d probably get a little kick out of it….but it’s also kinda creepy, so I dunno….
I love running – I really think you see the world in a totally different way. For example, I noticed a giant face carved into a tree just down the street from my house while out running. It has always been there and I just never noticed it….until I was on foot running by. Now I always point it out anytime I drive by with someone because it’s just so funny looking! But I probably would never have looked twice if I was driving by rather than running by.
Anyways, I need to jump in the shower. I’m hitting up Old Navy to see what’s up with their $8 cropped cardigans (Today Only!), and then over to Sunflower Farmer’s Market to stock up on some produce. Then I’ll be spending the rest of my day at school buried in work. Yup….it’s that time of the semester!
Has there been anything weird/random that you’ve only noticed on foot?
What are you up to this weekend?
