Hey hey--what a rollercoaster couple of weeks. I'm not going to lie, I've been in a funk. Trying to wrap my head around this injury, trying to adjust to not having a car, trying to navigate our futures and what's next and plans and life and blah blah.

Sunday afternoon, I tried to go for a run, and it was impossible. Sort of like a slow gallop. I could only go a few feet. It was crushing. Fuzzy and I did some talking, and I did some soul searching, and I decided that realistically I can't do the Sprint distances for the triathlon. Plus, everyone I know has been telling me to not do it. But then, we found out that our friend Kristen is doing the Super Sprint on Saturday the 27th, which is a 1/4 mile swim, a 6 mile bike and a 1.5 mile run. That gave me hope that maybe I could get up to that distance in time. I emailed the coordinators and they were so generous and switched me to that event. I am revived! New goals! I don't think I will be able to run by then, but I can certainly walk the 1.5 miles. And this way, Fuzzy will be able to meet me at the finish line! So I feel good about my decision. Now I just need to get back on the bike. I was going to ride some this morning, but I woke up in a lot of pain, and Fuzzy advised that I should just take it easy. I am constantly loaded on ibuprofen, which I hate cause I try to not ever have to take medicine, and I need to be better about icing the ole knee.

It's got me thinking a lot--what's next? I have really found strength in exercise--stress relief, feeling better, mental health, etc, and I don't want to lose that. I can keep swimming. I can focus on boxing again. Maybe should I start going to yoga class again? Dancing is certainly out of the question--it hurts bad enough doing the apes opening dance, and that is the easiest dance in the world. So I just have to re-prioritize, and refocus. Maybe triathlons were never for me? I don't want to give up, but I don't want to be unrealistic, either. You know.


GOOD NEWS! We have an air date and time for our Don't Spit The Water! Pilot!
Saturday, September 3rd at midnight (technically Sunday, Sept 4th) on WCIU! That's the main Weigel Broadcasting station! What a great slot! What a great channel! If you are in the Chicagoland area, we will be having a viewing party that night at the Lincoln Tap Room!
More info to come!!! I'll be posting a lot here in the next few weeks.

In closing, this morning I had a dream that my cats were wearing beautiful cat-sized silk Chinese blouses that they put on themselves. It was precious.
