three random things friday

1. I'm in New Mexico right now for a wedding, and the place where we stayed the first night has chickens.  Like, real chickens, strutting around six inches behind the headboard of our bed.
As it turns out, one of the chickens is a rooster, so we all decamped to a hotel room so we could get more than 3 hours of sleep in a night.  

2. I timed my spring schedule pretty well so that I'd be recovering from a 70.3 the week I had to travel across the country for a wedding of one of my closest friends.  What that means for triathlon this week is that I'm not on a training schedule.   I got the official approval to this week, which means I'm not wearing a watch or a heart rate strap or keeping track of how long or how far and definitely not fast I'm going.  Instead, I'm just moving.  I love data, I'm addicted to tracking, but I also really needed this break.  I'm sure that by the time my schedule rolls in next week I'll be grumpy and feel slow and fat and be raring to go. 

3. Last night was the bachelorette party, which means I have a lot of pictures on my phone like this:
And this:
And this (what is your name?):
But right now, I am doing this:
So please, no yelling in the comments, my brain is quite large right now.

Have a good weekend, friends!  Are you racing?  I'm pretty backed up on race reports from last weekend but it seems like everyone is pretty much rocking the hell out of the spring season.


  1. I desperately miss NM. Eat red and green chile for me. And blue corn tortillas. And a sopapilla or two. That is all.

    Oh, except to add that when I lived there, our next door neighbors had a goat. And a wallaby. The wallaby was OK, but the goat was bleating outside my bedroom window at 4:30 or so most mornings.

  2. You deserve some downtime and some fun! But chickens at your headboard? Good call moving to a hotel!

  3. *hooray for friends and warm weather and margaritas. please bring back green chiles. i will cook you something magnificent with them upon your return. all these lowercase letters mean i am whispering.*

  4. YELLING IS FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Rockin' the aviators, I love it!

  6. Sounds like a much deserved vacation from EVERYTHING! Enjoy it all!

  7. Hooray vacation! I am not racing this weekend; I am drinking. Cheers!

  8. i'll avoid using all caps. have fun, enjoy the break!

  9. Hahaha, that's awesome! Glad you are having a good time!

  10. Can you please tell me more about 1) your pretty glittery nail polish and 2) where you got that rainbow penis thing that looks both fun and delicious (if edible)? kthanksbye

    1. glittery nail polish is sally hanson something from the drugstore. the rainbow penis this was from a store called "castle" here in ABQ.

  11. I am racing and here in NM just a sprint... It's currently hailing so I'm a little nervous. I've never done a ride in the rain on race wheels...
