saturday i went out to a bar with some friends and ended up seeing someone from high school. my friend, also from high school, told him i did a triathlon. she said, he was surprised. so i go and meet up with this guy and i knew that he had done a marathon. so i told him that was really impressive and congrats. then he was asking about triathlons and i told him mine was a sprint distance, and he says,

"a sprint distance is nothing to be proud of"

can you believe that! that is such a rude thing to say to someone. i thought about kicking him in the shins. i told him he was rude and i had been drinking a lot so im not sure how mean i was... but i didnt really talk to him much more that night. so in conclusion, some people are just mean and rude for no reason.

my 2nd triathlon of the summer is coming up next weekend. so paige and i decided to do a mini tri today at 630 am. we are not usually such early birds.. so im extremely tired. i stayed up late watching the olympics! anyways, here is the breakdown..

bike 5 miles - 24 min
swim 600 meters - 17 min
run 3.25 miles - 35 min
bike 5 miles - 26 min

i am really glad i did it but im tired. i swam at barton springs and it was lovely and free before 9am. i was surprised at how many swimmers were there, it was only 7am! people were also running on the trail and then jumping in afterwards to cool off. although the events were out of order, it went well. i feel pretty prepared for the tri on august 24th. im excited. i think ill swim there again tomorrow (but only swim) and ill try to get a good picture. we were there right after sunrise and it was gorgeous!

the town lake running trail is amazing. there are so many runners of all types, it is really encouraging. especially, if you are even slightly competitive. i begin to think "if that person is still running, so can i." i wanted to run in the morning today to get it out of the way and maybe it wouldnt be so hot since i was planning a long run. but i am not a morning person. i made it to trail by 815 am so i was pretty impressed with myself. i warmed up with a 0.5 mile walk, ran 5 miles, and cooled down with a 0.5 mile walk. this was however, according to my nike+, so i probaly ran less. but i do love running with my ipod and my nike+. everyone should get one. so now i am very exhausted at school and will be leaving early.
