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.
