becoming a happy adult in a sunny sustainable world.
Ok, I don’t like skipping steps. So, before I can post an Eagleman RR from this weekend, I need to get all updated on my races so far this season.
Langley Pond Tri: We last left off the week before Langley Pond Tri and I was super pumped. The Wednesday before the race my throat started to be a little scratchy. And Friday? Oh shit, Friday. I woke up feeling drained and I figured it was just normal morning stuff. By noon, I was running a 102.5 degree fever. I was bundled under at least 4 different blankets and shaking constantly. At one point, I realized I needed a fever reducer and decided to head out to CVS. The fever was over 103 degrees at this point, and I, umm, probably shouldn’t have been driving a car. When I got to CVS, I went and had to sit down in the cold medicine aisle. And then had to lean on my knees while waiting in line to check out. I still had hope that by Saturday morning I would be feeling ok. And, what do you know, Saturday morning when I woke up at 6am, the fever had broken and I was back down to a healthy 98.6. But I was so drained. So fucking drained. I made the responsible decision and sat out the race.
Lake Murray Triathlon: Raced this after a long ride the day before and a sunburn. It was not pretty. Placed 3rd AG.
Irongirl: 11OA out of 1100+ Times were about exactly the same as two years ago. Except the swim, which was actually about 700m instead of 500m.
Ok. That’s it. Eagleman RR coming up. And it was a great race.
A public defender super heroine by day, I am a cupcake baker extraordinaire by night. And come weekend, I am an IronPerson. I deal with an NPR addiction daily and I dream of one day having Carl Kasell on my answering machine. I strive to be the best fur-mommy I can be, and when I have time, I'm learning to be a grownup.
