Bustin' Some Ass in the 'Lou

So, how cool is this - Little Miss Runner Pants is coming to the 'Lou this weekend and we are meeting up for a relaxing jog in the park. Hah! Relaxing jog. We'll be out there bustin' our newbie tri butts, loggin' some miles and catchin' up - or, what do you call it when you haven't actually met someone, but you've been reading their blog for months? Anyway, I'm so pysched - this chic cracks me up on a daily basis and I can only hope that I don't come off as some boring, suburbia, thirty-something mom type trying to hang onto her youth by imagining herself as a triathlete. Hmmm. A little glimpse into the inferiorty complex of yours truly. That's worse than seeing me neked.

For sure she'll learn the truth to destroy her false perception that I'm "speedy". Not for an hour plus, I'm not. It'll be fun, regardless.

Thankfully, she turned down my invitation to Master's Swim so she won't be able to report how incredibly SLOW I am in the water. Though, that could change as soon as tonight - I'm going to an extra special three hour Total Immersion swim clinic tonight - so I expect some major miracles to occur. I'll probably be swimming 1:20/100m by tomorrow. Just wait. But don't hold your breath. That could be . . . bad.

So, super exciting weekend on the books for me! Have a safe and happy one, y'all - and be careful out there (but not too careful)!

Have fun with the Lil' Miss. She's one of my favs.

And I just put two and two together. My friend and training partner Mishele K is moving to the Lou for law school. She should look you up.

I think I might have to join your little party to bitch slap some sense in to you. Lucky for you I'm busy this weekend ;-)

Have fun

From one really old pretender to another not so old pretender - NOT!

Yippie skippie! Sounds like a wicked fun weekend!

I'm especially excited (but not holding my breath, thanks for the warning!) to read about the TI clinic. I've thought about doing one after hearing about what miracles it works, but I'm kind of scared of the mandatory month of solid drills that comes afterwards. You'll have to tell me if it's worth it!

Have fun! Nothing better about the blogger experience than meeting in person.
