I may have mentioned that, due to a little bit of peer pressure, I'm planning on doing the Chisago Lakes Sprint Tri in July. The thought of doing a triathlon is a teensy bit terrifying for me, so when I saw that one of our local (and by local, I mean within an hour - that's what happens when you live in the boonies) hospitals was doing a Triathlon 101 class AND giving a discount to Chisago, I was all over it.
Last night was the class, and it definitely got me pumped up for the tri. Most of the information was stuff I already basically knew from reading blogs (thanks to all you smarty pants!), but it was reassuring to be in a room with other people who have no clue what they are doing. So now I am really looking forward to the triathlon and trying to figure out how I am going to get my butt in the pool. Must learn to swim NOW.
I also had a little happy surprise yesterday. While waiting for our taxes to get done, my hubby and I stopped into one of the big sports stores in the Twin Cities. I was thrilled to find my favorite Saucony shoes on sale for $50. That is so cheap! I picked those babies right up. I love the first run in the cushiony goodness of new shoes. My happiness was only somewhat dulled when I looked down and realized that the dress pants I was wearing had ripped and my entire ass was exposed for the world to see. Next stop: new pants.
