Pretzel anyone?



Nancy posted a warning for boaters and referenced "The Perfect Storm" for the east coast. That was a storm of historic proportions (if you haven't read the book I reccomend it-just not in flight from DC to MN in turbulance) where an early Nor' Easter danced with a Florida hurricane and produced at least 100 foot waves and 120-150 mph winds. The same low pressure that created "The Perfect Storm" made a layover in MN bringing a Halloween Blizzard which dumped 24 inches of snow in 24 hours. The state shut down. Should I drag out the snow shovels? On the bright side I hear shoveling snow is great core work out.

Which is good because my carb cravings have switched from chocolate cake to cookies. What is going on? I doubt even Susan could help me now. Madonna, Susan, Richard, they don't retire, they just repackage-like Twinkies. Hmmm,Twinkies.

Stop, must stop.

Gopher, Issac and the gang managed a last second win today over the Cheeseheads, and that made for a great 75 minute spin on the trainer. The biking, not the game. We were cheering for Favre, anything to lose Tice et al. My beloved Broncos took down Little Manning, but by then it was on the swim team, so it was a radio update cheer a thon.

It will be a swim/bike brick tomorrow-hopefully biking outdoors, blizzard not withstanding.

No blizzards, please!! :-)

I think your pretzels make a great triathlon logo. Eat your way through the event. :-)

i've started my 2 week boot camp before my sprint tri in november (my first). the big no-nos... sweets and soda. (although i am allowed cake on my baby's first bday the night before the tri.) i went shopping after my swim and i was thirsty and it was sooooo hard to walk by the cold diet cherry cokes. ugh! THEN they dared to have 12 packs of dr. pepper on sale 3/$10. must. keep. walking. i got out alive, but man, it was rough there for a while. i'm with you all the way trimama. stay strong. ;)

I was at the game with all of the Favre idiots. It is hard to cheer to win with Tice standing on the sideline. But you should have seen those packer fans boo hooing there way out of the dome. It was priceless!!

Hey tri-mama cool blog. I was doing a search for socom 3 and I found your blog. I run a tournament site http://www.urgentfury.com so I'm just trying to promote it. It's a cool, new and innovative tournament. Check it out if you get the chance. Thanks.

Thanks for the brace info. As for underarmour, I'm not thrilled. It does a good job retaining heat and wicking moisture, but it rides up my torso in an annoying way (I'm 5'8''). I have to tuck it into my shorts, which is a very glamorous look!
