Random Friday Facts

In case you missed the other Random Friday Fact posts you can find them here and here and here. Ya know, in case you want to know random things about me and my life ;)

  1. For the past year I have had Invisalign to straighten my teeth. My teeth were never bad, but I never had braces and I wanted them to be super straight so I opted for Invisalign. I am almost done with my treatment and get these stupid little bumps off my teeth on June 20th. Woop!
  2. I am balancing alot right now. More than a full time job, ironman training and normal life things like laundry. 30+ hours a week more, actually. Yes, I am stressed but I'll survive.
  3. I cry easily. If I'm frustrated, I cry. Angry, I cry. Sad, I cry. Happy, I cry. You get the idea...I'm a big baby.
  4. I have been working on holding front and side planks and I am happy to say I can hold a front plank for over 3 minutes now but my goal is to get to 5 minutes. Side planks are a different story. I fall after about 1 minute and 45 seconds. Damn you, side planks!
  5. I also can't do planks in my living room because my dog grabs a ball or a toy and squeaks it against my head or my butt. You try holding planks while a fatty pug pushes a toy against your head. It's hard.
  6. I got a pedicure yesterday. I chose hot pink as the polish color just so it would match my bike. I may be an athlete but I can be a girly-girl too!
  7. I swam in the "fast" lane last night at the pool. Guess what? It made me swim faster! Move over boys, I am swimming in the fast lane from now on!
  8. I don't get naked in the locker room at the pool. I know, I know. All ladies have the same parts. I get it. I would rather just hide behind my towel or do the really awkward "put your sports bra over your bathing suit before you pull your bathing suit down" thing. No, I don't have body image issues, I just don't like the whole locker room to see me sans clothes.
  9. Mean people bother me. To the jerk who left a nasty comment on my blog about "a sub 9 minute pace race is nothing to be proud of"- you suck and I hope you become a really slow runner.
  10. I have a freckle on my 4th toe of each of my feet. If for some reason you have to identify my body and you can only see my feet, look for the freckles!
have a great weekend! :)


  1. I had invisalign too! I was really bad about it though and my teeth now shift a little if I don't wear the retainers every night (and I don't wear them every night). I don't know why it was so hard for me to get into a good routine with it, especially given the investment!

    I have the same problem with the planks at home. The boys start licking my face and it's all over.

  2. 1. Delete comments from evil trolls.
    2. 9mm is so something to be proud of.

  3. - Planks are tough

    - You can block evil trolls too, mean people suck, Why do people have to leave mean comments?

  4. I love this post! I cry very easily too, why not, what the hell :)Have a great wekend.

  5. i have freckle in between 2 toes. and i cry when i'm mad!

  6. I cry all the time too! I cried during HGTV because two sisters were buying a house together and it made me sad that my sister lives 7 hours from me :(

    And I'm right there with you on the locker room thing. They have a changing room with a door at Fairland and I usually use that. Plus I usually am too lazzy to put my sports bra back on anyhow.

    I need a pedicure so bad! Ahhh I never have time

  7. Wha? <9mm is great! And totally impressed with your planks. I'm up to 45sec (sans Pug) and proud of it! :)

  8. I just recently found your blog through some other DC area bloggers. :)

    I think sub-9 miles are pretty impressive and I'm always excited when I can achieve them. I don't really understand why people feel the need to make such mean comments. What do they really gain?

  9. Wow, whoever left that comment is a monster. I was just thinking this morning how much better everything is when you're nice about it. I hope you put him out of your head and have a fantastic weekend. And let me know next time you get a little riding group together. I'd love to crash!

  10. WTF about the 9 minute miles? Geeze. I'm thrilled if I can do 2 miles at 9 minute pace. What a loser.

  11. Sad that someone actually commented on a run pace. Why does anyone care about someone else's run pace?

    Your dog cracks me up. I can't stretch with the cats out, because I become the rubbing post. The cats are terrified of the foam roller, so I use that as my defense! haha!

  12. Ugh, I am a big baby about crying, too. I do it when I am stressed/frustrated/etc, which just makes me MORE stressed/frustrated! Not cool!:)

    Hahaha, I love the comment about your pug, too cute!

    I don't get naked in the locker room, either. I mean I kind of will but I make it super quick and turn away from people. No lounging or, like I saw once at Washington & Lee, hanging out naked in the shower eating my breakfast (people are weird;).

    Oh my gosh! I will find that mean guy and beat him up for you! Does he have a blog? We'll all go leave really mean comments! I don't know why anyone ever wants to make someone feel bad...I just don't understand it. I have heard a lot about blogs being an invitation for some of those jerks. SO far I haven't had one, but my blog is still so new. Ugh, I still can't believe this!
