So, I totally hope you guys had an awesome weekend – I sure did! It went by way way too fast, and I don’t feel like I got to spend enough time with Austin, but I’m hoping to make up for some of it this week.
So, after I did wine with Matthew on Friday night, and taught Zumba, I headed to the Raleigh Half Ironman expo to grab some cowbells, because come Sunday morning, I had plans to wake up early, cheer on some Half Ironman and Half Iromwomen, and grab brunch with one of my best friends in the entire world.
Let’s review really quickly. So for those of you who are unfamiliar (cause prior to last year, I was!) with what a Half Ironman is, a Half Ironman (often denoted as 70.3), is a triathlon that involves a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile (whew!) bike ride, and a half marathon at the end (13.1 miles), to top it off. I spectated last year, and had such a great time, that I went for it again this year.
We started off by spectating some of the guys that would be considered elite.
Caitlin, on the left, was giving out free hugs, and it was really really cute to see folks stop, look really relived, and then go in for a big, sweaty hug. At one point, she said she had to spit someone else’s sweat out of her mouth (GROSS!!?) but she was an awesome sport about it.
After I cheered and cowbelled for the Ironmen and ladies, I headed down to a carwash closer to the north side that had been revamped, and that was doling out free carwashes. Since I’m on a budgeting kick, I could not justify paying to wash my car, so I went and got a wash, and vacuumed it out as well.
And finally, I was inspired by the folks from this morning that I topped this busy day off with a run.
How was your weekend?
OMG PS ONE LAST THING!!!!!!!!!! I finally registered for my Body Pump Training – so as of mid-July, I am going to Wilmington to get trained to teach Body Pump. I am SO excited!!!! Can you tell by all the exclamation points?
