If We Were Having Coffee…

If we were having coffee today…

…I would tell you how awesome the cruise was last week.  The last time I was surrounded by so many Estonians and so much of my culture was when I was in Estonia years ago.  I didn’t think it would have as much of an impact on me as it did.  Plus, sun and warmth.

I force Fella to take selfies and pictures on vacation. That’s our ship in the background!

…I would tell you that I am crazy excited that it’s only a month until our wedding!  I can’t believe that it’s here already and I can’t wait.  It’s going to be a smaller wedding on the beach in South Florida and we have as many of our favorite people going down for it.  Almost everything is done, so now it’s just tying up the final items.  While I am excited for the reception and being married part, I am terrified of having 60 to 70 people staring at me as the center of attention.  No thanks.

It’s the final countdown!

…I would tell you that I exhausted, but in a good way.  Half Ironman training is going really well, but having both a crazy life and crazy training is taking its toll on me.  I need to improve on my time management skills and stop spreading myself so thin.  Coffee is great, but I should be able to keep my eyes open without the help of caffeine.


I need this on a shirt. Or a poster. Or maybe just a tattoo.

…I would tell you about how nervous I am for team training camp that I have over Valentine’s Day weekend.  The coaches have kind of an intense schedule set up.  Honestly, it’s nothing that I can’t handle, but my knee jerk reaction is anxiety and nervousness.  I know that my training thus far is solid, but that doesn’t keep away the though of “What if I’m the slowest person there?” and the such.  That’s one of the reasons why I am going though.  You can’t improve unless you step outside your comfort zone.

…I would tell you that I am killing it with my nutrition lately and it’s starting to show.  I have a goal number that I would like to be at by the wedding and another that I am aiming for by NOLA 70.3.  My big goal for the year is Border Wars 70.3 in October.  I want to be at my racing weight and I want to leave it all out on the course.  My eye is on the prize.

…I would tell you that poor Koda is miserable.  She is not a cold weather dog and we can barely convince her to leave the house.  Her vote is that we live somewhere warm.
