I declare the war on global warming over-we won!


I began this year, (with Minnesota's coldest winter in recent history,) joking that this was God's Job-like response to Al Gore.

It's not funny anymore.

I have yet to see a tulip or crocus and nary a leaf on a tree. Aaaaaaggggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, I'm done.

Not much of a prelude to Happy Birthday to Me!

I turn 40 tomorrow. (long philosophical post to follow)

In honor of 40, I'll be doing

4000 yard swim (4 miles? You're freakin kidding me-my arms would pop out of their sockets)
40 mile bike
4 mile run.

Then I'm going to go watch HG play rugby and go to dinner, where in true Rugby fashion, I will drink 40 ounces of beer.

Finally,

where is Fe Lady? Her blog disappeared! A little help here?

No idea about Fe Lady. Hopefully it's just a glitch.

Hopefully y'all thaw out soon.

And best of luck with your B-Day Triathlon. I'll be turning 40 this year too, but due to location, mine will be just one long run. I think I'd rather do the tri. ;)

Hey TRIMAMA!
Happy Birthday! Life begins at 40! :-) Or 50...
I like the way you are celebrating. That's really cool- and 4000 yards is quite the swim!
Taking a break from my site- ( I actually deleted it and have no clue as to how to bring it back!)
Time for a lesson at the apple store I guess!
Have fun on your day!

Happy Birthday! You are one smokin' hot 40 year old TriMama.

And if you saw Al's movie you would know that global warming means some of us burn, some of us drown and some of us freeze. Ugly stuff.

Happy Bday Trimama!

So nice that you're able to get out there and crank out the miles!

Happy Birthday!
I did about 3 posts on TBWSNBN (the birthday which shall not be named) and then went surfing with all my firends and had an excellent party! I think you earn 40, and you've more than earned yours :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TRIMAMA!

Fe Lady,

It has been scientifically proven that your arms will pop off after 5,000 yards of swimming. So your arms will be fine until the next decade =D

faithrunner said...

Happy birthday trimama!! Hope your evening with the tribe is loads of laughs. Have a great one!

Bigun said...

Happy Birthday TM! Make Taconite Boy do something extra special for you tonight. Good thing Kahuna is hurt or he might offer up a present of his own....

Happy Birthday Trimama, Rugby.. theres a proper sport. (though I do have a permanently dislocated collar bone from playing when I was younger.

tarheeltri said...

Happy Birthday! There's always room for you, Tac and the clan in North Carolina!

Iron Pol said...

Happy Birthday! I'll be doing the 40th events. Yes, complete with the four mile swim. I'll also be doing a 50 miler sometime before my birthday. Does 50 miles count, or does it have to be 40?

BTW, we had over an inch of snow on April 28th.

Happy 40th birthday! Enjoy the day.

I am not a "sunny here type" but reading your weather notes I wanted to give you a flip side to it.

We haven't had rain here for 88 days. Chances are we get any until late June when the monsoons hit. Thats at least another 40 days away. Thats...what...over 4 months without a drop. That sucks.
