Speaking of vomit, I watched the cat throw up the biggest hairball on the bathroom floor this morning. Gross, I KNOW! Poor guy. He means well! He just rides the short bus to school.
And speaking of cats! There is a freaking mountain lion on the loose! YES, a MOUNTAIN LION. We don't have mountain lions up here. On my ride last night, there was a new sign posted. Yeah, I got uber paranoid and picked it up a notch.
If I see a mountain lion while out riding or running, this will bring my tally up a bit of strange animals running out in front of me while riding. Let's see, I have had a black bear come out in front of me, a dog bit me, multiple dogs try to bite me, a crawfish, lots of deer, and I think there was a Moose on the side of the road up in Waterville, NH.
I work in the middle of nowhere in Northern Greenwich, CT. Sorry, folks but all of the uber rich Hedge Fund Managers work 25 mins away in downtown Greenwich.
However! A plane crashed a half mile from the office, setting the woods on fire. The county airport is 1 mile away from my office.
So between crashing planes and wild mountain lions and me riding and working in the middle of nowhere, I am convinced there is no safe place to ride.
Speaking of places to ride (haha! I could do this all day) I am heading up to Lake Placid for 5 days. Yeeeesssssss!!!! This is for my Coach's annual training camp.
He is withholding the entire itineray to keep us guessing, but he has told us what is going on on Day #1:
2 hour trail run (bring an extra pair of shoes and towel)
Swim (prolly the LP course)
1 loop of the bike course.
Soooooo, a broken Half Ironman day 1? Oh brother....
I have a feeling I am going to be riding 200 miles and running a few marathons and swimming a few lakes over the next 5 days. Should be fun!
Finally, been spamming everyone on Twitter, but I will try here as well. (and Thank You! to those who have already responded)
What did you do with the pair of shoes you ran your first marathon in?
