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 just....be 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:

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.
