Happy Thursday my friends! I’m linking up with Amanda from Running With Spoons for Thinking Out Loud.
Having a bad day at the races was really put into perspective on Sunday. While I wasn’t able to run the race I hoped, the first person across the finish line unintentionally cut the course short and was disqualified. My heart goes out to him as no doubt that was not the result he hoped for either.
I am a bit of a spreadsheet nerd. I was looking to see if maybe I started out too fast on Sunday by comparing my heart rate data to Tinker Bell’s. I’m not really sure what the data tells me except I know I didn’t mentally give up on my goal until mile 5.5. I’m not sure why my HR tanked so early on!
The exciting thing about this week is that it is race week! I’m racing my very first triathlon of the season at the Strathmore Women’s Triathlon. If you’d like to join in on the fun in either the sprint triathlon, duathlon or relay you can still sign up at race packet pick up (cash only). It is time to put some Lock Laces in my shoes!
Apparently Disney has been sending out a survey to see how receptive people might be to tiered ticket pricing. Disney World is already a very expensive vacation, plus it is complicated because it requires so much planning in advance (lodging, dining reservations, fast pass bookings)! Neil and I are giving Disney World a bit of a break for awhile to do some other things, but tiered tickets would really have us questioning about going back.
I very rarely wear my hair down. It is fine and thin and just winds up looking so blah later in the day. I got a free sample of Living Proof’s Prime Style Extender from Sephora and that stuff is liquid gold! I actually had a good hair day all day!
I’ve been looking into flight to Kelowna in October to run the BMO Okanagan Half Marathon. I hear the course is flat and fast (plus being in Kelowna the scenery is gorgeous). Bonus? Spending Thanksgiving with my parents and catching the tail end of the fall wine festival.
