Since it is Thursday I figured this was a good opportunity to share some randomness on the blog!
There was some major triathlon inspiration this weekend! On Saturday I went to the Kona broadcast viewing party at Tri-It. Neil and I don’t have cable so this was a perfect opportunity to watch the show and to hang out with awesome people. There were draw prizes and yummy snacks (that were all vegan and gluten free). There were some very tear jerking and inspirational stories and you couldn’t help but be in awe of Mirinda Carfrae and her amazing ability to chase everyone down on the run.
On Sunday my three best training buddies Shannon, Tara and Kelly all raced Ironman Arizona. I was glued to my computer for much of the day getting tracking updates and watching the live race coverage. Apparently the winds were brutal on the bike but they all had super stellar days. I’m so proud of them for all of the hard work they put into training and for executing a great race. For Shannon and Kelly this was their second IM this year after they both raced Boulder!
On the no cable topic of discussion, we cut the cord when we moved to our new house. I thought I would really miss having cable but the only thing I really miss is having the news and weather on while I get ready for work. The few shows that I am interested in watching are available online right after they air (thank you Food Network Canada and Top Chef). I’ve also been checking out old TV series that are up on Netflix and I’m really enjoying Gossip Girl right now. So trashy!
One last thing that I’m loving these days is the new song (and the video to go with it) from OK Go - I Won’t Let You Down. The video is pretty darn cool and the song is catchy and fun. It is a good song to add to your running/spinning playlist!
What is your favourite oldie but goodie show to binge watch on Netflix?
