random friday facts

1. I erase my computer every once in a while just because.  Ditto my phone.
2. My second toe is the longest.
3. I love my Garmin.  I hate the noises.
4. I can't remember the last time I read a magazine.
5. I never capitalize things on twitter or in casual emails.  
6. The smell of bleach reminds me of a very inappropriate smell.
7. I love being outside.  I will not sleep in a tent/sleeping bag/on the ground.  Being outside is for play, when it's time to sleep, I need a bed and a pillow.
8. We still have no idea what to do with our basement.
9. I have no visible birthmarks.
10. I've lived here for 3 years and there are still packed boxes.
11. My middle finger is crooked from years of pressing too hard on a pencil.
12. I don't like it when people respell words with numbers in them.  You aren't cool, you're stupid.
13. I really wish I hadn't quit the swim team when I was 7.
14. I hate my dishwasher.
15. I essentially only eat white meat anymore, and not even that often, but sometimes I can't resist some crunchy pepperoni on my pizza.
16. I can't deal with audio books.  I get distracted and realize I've missed half the book.
17. I'm learning that keeping my training volume the same but changing all of my workouts from "easy" to "scheduled intensity" is destroying my calorie in/out.  Starving at 9pm every day this week, party of one!
18. I really want to get Molly one of those little-kid-kitchens to play in.
19. I'm never afraid or worried about bike or swim workouts anymore.  Anything faster than "easy run" completely stresses me out.
20. My cheese intake has dropped.  I'm not sure why.
21. I cut about 4 inches off of my hair last Saturday when I got out of the shower because the ratty muppet look was no long working for me.  I am never paying for a haircut ever again.  
22. I think everyone looks like an idiot in a bike helmet.
23. I haven't bought a pair of jeans that cost more than $20 in about 5 years.
Side note: if anyone would like to purchase my Reston bib, please let me know.  You can ride the 35, 65, or 103-mile options with my bib.  Food stations are delicious and scenery is gorgeous.  The 35-mile version is pretty flat, 65 is moderately hilly, 103 is a disaster.  There are no time limits on the ride.
And, as always, drop me a note if you've put up a RFF post and I'll link you.  Have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. Stop being such a h8r.

    Molly would love the little kid's kitchen. Or maybe one of those red and yellow cars. Fun!

  2. I can't do audio books either. I forget to pay attention. And I totally agree with you on #7.

    I did RFF today...

  3. You know you can turn the sound off your garmin, right? Also, doesn't it mean something when your second toe is longer than your big toe? Icant remember what.

  4. 3. I turned my noises/vibrations off. I will show you.
    20. we WILL remedy this shortfall

  5. eat cheese ASAP. that is all.

  6. I would be so scared to cut my own hair!

  7. #9-None visible? I have a lady who will cut your hair at your house for $40. No kidding, we had her come to our office and we would all take turns going into an office to get our haircut. It was awesome. I'll miss that most about my old job, next to being able to bring Dash in.

  8. Do you have invisible birthmarks?

    I posted RFF.....holla!!!!!

  9. No doubt nobody looks good in a bike helmet....nobody.

  10. Second toe the longest is called "Morton's foot" -- supposedly it means that more stress is placed on the second metatarsal, because the big toe doesn't do enough work.

    I have Morton's foot on my left foot only. What's the bone I broke last fall? Second metatarsal on left foot.

  11. That Morton's toe could mess up some running over time.

    As for the Garmin, you can turn off the notifications ...

  12. "8. We still have no idea what to do with our basement."
    -You should hold a rave for endurance athletes. Body shots of Powerbar Perform and Infinit, pre race pump me up music, and spandex. On second thought, hold the spandex.

  13. I haven't bought expensive jeans in so long. I like my 20 dollar jeans-not that I ever wear them ha.

  14. I can't wait to see this haircut. In college I had friends chop mine for me.
    Also--your dishwasher holds approximately 5 items total. I hate it from afar.

  15. The Garmin noises COMPLETELY freak my cat out. And not a day goes by that I don't want to go back in time and yell at my 6-year-old self to get in the pool and stick with swimming.

  16. I would turn off that Garmin beep in a SECOND if I could / knew how. Gah.

    I also have totally lost hope for ever looking halfway normal with a bike helmet on (why do the Pros look cool?! Not fair), and think it would be a-mazing if Molly had a fake kitchen.

  17. I RFF'd! But I was late, so it became a RSF.

  18. #11 I had the ugliest callous on my finger all through school for the same reason. Fortch I grew out of the death grip. Or maybe I just don't hand write so much...
    #21 YES! I haven't paid for a haircut in years. True my hair has no shape but it's (fairly) even and always healthy!
