Never get tired of laughter

I swear I have laughed so much in the past three weeks that ... well ... I want to laugh at the amount of laughter.

I don't know if that loose screw finally broke free or if my perspective on things changed. Heck, it could be both.

Most of the time I am laughing at Carrie. Not laughing at her like "I can't believe how stupid you are ..." but rather "Wow, I have never thought of that thing in that way ..." or "I can't believe you just said that."

For example:

I am now famous at home for being borderline narcoleptic at any hour past 6pm. (This is a much better option than it was a few years ago when I was attending sleep studies to try and figure out why I couldn't sleep.) A few weeks ago I passed out mid-sentence and I awoke to Carrie's voice and face RIGHT IN MY GRILL as she semi-shouted "Sleep!". It sounded like an intro to an 80s rap song the way she said it. It was defintely one of those you had to be there moments - but just now I had to stop typing to laugh.

This week I re-focused my efforts on eating very cleanly. It definitely makes a major difference in how I feel. Not that I had been eating horribly - but with the training volume in pre-Ironman phase, nearly anything with any hint of nutritional value was on the menu.

I am so excited to race this weekend. Last year I got a flat and crashed on this race course... so it is revenge time. The race this weekend is well-suited to me because MOST of the race is on the bike. It is a 300m swim, 22 mile bike, 2 mile run. I have purposely been working speed since May 7th in prep for this weekend and next weekend's shorter sprint races.


  1. Good luck with the race this weekend.

  2. Best of luck this weekend, funny that we're both racing, although I'm just doing a 5K on Sunday. I'll be rooting for you!

  3. Thanks Jarad and Wassdoc - Hey Doc - the new site - that is cool!
