It's National Donut Day and I celebrated by eating sauerkraut. And then this happened.
You didn't expect me to celebrate National Running Day and not celebrate National Donut Day. In a few weeks I won't get super excited every time I see Krispy Kremes. I'll be in the land of Krispy Kreme...in Alabama every day is National Donut Day (31.2% obese + 35.3% just overweight...second only to Mississippi). But until then, when I see Krispy Kremes I'll stop-especially if it's National Donut Day. I also ran today. So it all evened out. I was planning on swimming until this happened.
I thought I had another pair of goggles. No luck. All workout clothes/gear but the bare minimum were shipped last week and I didn't make it to buy new goggles before the pool closed, but I had to go buy new goggles. I'm doing a triathlon tomorrow.
About a week ago I realized that my first triathlon in Hawaii was the North Shore Tri. So why not make it my last (though I hope Kona 2014 in my future). The North Shore Tri has always been one of my favorite tris (despite the long beach run from the swim to transition). I might end up walking most of the run and I haven't been on the bike since I realized just how jacked up my achilles was (when it REALLY hurt to bike I realized how jacked up it was). I'm probably being dumb by racing at all but I really want to so I will.
I also made what will likely be my last batch of sauerkraut in Hawaii. It's become somewhat of a joke that I take sauerkraut to all cookouts, potlucks and dinner parties...but it's the first thing that disappears at parties...even before the guacamole and chips. Because I'm delaying my departure for two weeks, my friends have told me that every party they have will also be a going away, as long as I bring sauerkraut. Today we drank beer and I taught a friend how to make kraut. This batch should be ready right after I leave.
