I've had writers block all week so I figured I would post a miscellaneous musing post of random things. Is it bad that some of my posts are not triathlon related?
Where is Q on the Move?
Has any one seen Q? I miss reading his blog. Has he permanently stopped blogging? I hope not because he was a great blogger and will be missed.

Ocala 13.1 Half Marathon
This weekend I will be running the Ocala Half Marathon with Triston. I love this race so it should be fun. Last year it seriously kick my butt and I finished almost crying because my knees hurt so bad. I plan no not repeating that issue again this year. Here is my review of last years race. If anyone plans on running this race this weekend please let me know. I would love to meet you.
Rough Morning Start
So this morning I got up at 4:50 AM and headed to the gym for a chest workout. All went well till I started to get dressed. I had to bring more clothes than normal because today is dress-up day at work. This means I have to dress up super fancy and sit in my cell where no one will ever see me. I could be wearing my yellow Sponge Bob pajamas and no one would ever know but I am still required to wear something fancy. Before I left home I triple checked I had everything to get ready at the gym. So I am getting dressed at the gym when I noticed my pants are a little loose. I mean really loose. Like pants on the ground loose. Not ghetto pants on the ground but like suit pants on the ground loose. I was really looking like a fool. Not being one to set a new office fashion trend I had to quickly drive to Walmart to get a belt.
I thought "I will stop at Starbucks today to turn this morning around" when I get a phone call from Bonnie who was in a bad mood for various reasons and needed someone to vent with. No biggie. I hope her day turns around.
I got my coffee and went to work. I got off on the wrong floor and while doing so spilled coffee on my white dress shirt. Apparently I wanted to wear the coffee more than I wanted to drink it. I will be absorbing my caffeine through osmosis. Doh!!
I've started going to the gym nearly every morning at 4:50 AM. I am not a morning person but I seriously need to start getting in more swimming, biking and running before my 70.3 in May. I am starting to feel old because I am trying to be in bed at 9:00 PM every night. So tired!! MR HALF-ZOMBIE !!
New Best Friends
I consumed two new best friends this weekend. Let me introduce them to you.
|It's beer and a Yoo-Hoo! (Image Source)|
Southern Teir Choklat Imperial Stout - It's like drinking an 11% Yoo-Hoo beer but in a good way. Every time you take a sip you first taste stout then about 2 seconds later the Yoo-Hoo factor kicks in. I am ashamed to say it is great. See a review here

J.K.'s Solstice Cider (Limit Release) - I am a hard cider buff. I hate them sweet and I have not found an American brewer who can make a cider taste good. This is sad because early America was known for its hard cider. It was much more popular than beer. But this cider is truely awesome! It is not to sweet or over spiced. And it is USDA organic. It's limit release so do NOT buy any. I want it all for myself.
