three things thursday

1. All of my Christmas swimming stuff showed up!  I'm already pretty excited about being back in the pool (strange, I know) after a few weeks off and a now-quieting-down cranky shoulder, but this puts it over the top.  I think I need a new swim cap to celebrate all major holidays.  It basically looks like Santa threw up all over me.  Who's the cutest??
2. IM-focused training, otherwise known as Project Make My House Short & Fat started on Tuesday.  It's Thursday and I'm still alive, soooooo, so far so good.  But I am pretty sore.  Apparently your muscles don't just keep themselves in shape while you eat and drink and sleep for two weeks.  Lame.  Speaking of eating and drinking and Ironman (see what I did there?), our post-race celebratory meal on Saturday happened to be in the same restaurant as Chris McCormack.  See?  He's right there.  Basically at our table.  He's even posing for the picture!  (click on it to see the really excellent look on his face and/or a really close-up look at Jon's pores).
He busted me staring at him more than a few times but was too shy to come over and say hello.  I can't imagine why.  
I mean, we're all winners today!  Come on now, Macca.  Basically instant BFFs.


3. The poet and I did another round of "puppies are our children" photos a few weeks ago and I love them.  LOVE.

Don't try and tell me I'm some crazy childless weirdo who love my dogs too much.  I already know.


Happy Thursday!

  2. I really don't understand why he didn't come hang out with us. We were obviously super cool.

  6. I can't believe Chris didn't come over for an autograph! He must have been too celebrity-stunned by you.

    Those pictures are fantastic.

  7. And the award for best photos of the year goes to: YOU!

    The Macca face is a classic.

    The Katie face is even more classic.

    The Katie Got Run Over By Christmas is even more classic.

    And the Poet/Puppy Pics are just awesome.

  8. How is the sizing on those xmas suits? I may need to join the trend. I hope we can coordinate some of this training that is going on, sometime soon! I sorta can't believe we've never run into each other.

  9. AAAARRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!! (that was the pirate photo, right?).....the too many free beers and margaritas slightly made me REALLY happy that day :)

    Puppies! I am totally tackling Graham when I meet him.

  12. Christmas swimming stuff is cute! and any runin with Macca is off the chain. I just finished reading "I'm here to Win" last night.

  13. Muscles need to take note - the MIND keeps itself ready for endurance, why can't they do it, too?! Lame, indeed.

    #2. I had to look up "Chris McCormack"...
    ...and the picture of you made me snort.

  14. OK, when you said Macca, I thought THE macca...like Sir Paul McCartney. Who I naturally assumed was there to watch you and all the girls and boys kill your tri races. Never heard of that other guy.

    Isn't it great to be old enough not to be embarrassed!!?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have to agree with Kate who commented above me. When I originally read your Macca tweets, I thought you ran into Paul McCartney.

    I love love love the new family pictures!

  16. You are a fabulous weirdo. That swimming kit rocks! And I don't even like Christmas.

  21. CHRISTMAS SUIT!!!!

    Love the puppy pics! :)

  22. Absolutely loved this post!! I don't even know where to start. 1st awesome swim out fit from head to toe (I'm assuming you also got a pedicure with candy canes) maybe that's what I need to motivate me to do winter swimming.

    2nd - It's a good thing I keep my office door closed during my lunch because I was literally on the floor rolling with laughter b/c of the next 2 pics, the look on his face and your face oh priceless.

    3rd - I'm right there with you on the dogs thing even my own hubs thinks I'm a little crazy about it. He was really hurt when I told him I left the TV on for my doggie when she had to spend the day alone indoors and I won't even let him leave the air on in the summer if we leave the house at all.

    Great family pics!!

  23. The look on your face in the second puppy picture made my day.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I was gonna be all proud of outing myself that I have no idea who this McCormack dud is but Kate beat me to it.

    Puppies are gorgeous. You too. The Christmas stuff is perfectly almost-over-the-top but not quite.

  25. That last photo with your dog is awesome. His face makes it look like you're the one with bad breath! Makes me want another golden though!

    ReplyDelete
  26. The photo of you in the sideways visor just might be my favorite ever.

    ReplyDelete
  27. AHHHHHHHH! I love love love your swim cap and suit!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm gonna leave a Three Things comment:

    1. Love your festive swim wear, especially the candy cane cap!

    2. Your Macca photo is great, but even better on zooming in to see him looking at you like, "Excuuuuuse me?!"

    3. I am also a childless weirdo who loves my dogs too much -- as evidence, I submit the photo shoot my BF and I just did of our dogs in front of the Christmas tree: http://www.kateo.org/2011/12/05/festive-weekend-antics/ So yeah, I totally get it!

  29. Ha Ha! I have puppy grandchildren!

    Love love love your Christmas swim wear. I want it badly esp. the cap. You might be on to something with the idea of a gear for each holiday.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Love it! The look your puppy is giving you in the last picture is hysterical. It's also the same look my dog gives me when I ask him "Kiss on the jowls, kiss on the jowls???" and swoop in for the smooch. So was Macca shorter than you expected? I saw him at a race once and, while he would hand me my ass in a triathlon, I felt like I could probably take him down in a fight, as I had the height and weight advantage.

  36. Great post! Love the pictures with the pups. You seriously should have just pulled up a chair and joined Macca as if you were old friends. :)
