We went to my new favorite coffee shop in the loop again- Dollop. I got a maple latte and a quiche. Delicious.
I was silly post maple coffee.
Another morning Churro Bear "CB" was silly.
On my birthday I went to work. Then I left early to watch the Brasil v Germany game. It was so ridiculously heartbreaking to watch. Sigh
I also went to my PT appointment on my birthday because, why not? Cankle doesn't take a break from being a whiny bitch...
THE Iron Chef Morimoto even showed up, but I refused to go all fan girl on him and get a photo. Instead I was mesmerized watching him talk to and instruct the sushi chefs.
The Air Cheesecake was mindblowing my delicious- as was the rest of our meal.
The 2 couples sitting at the tables next to us were also celebrating their birthdays too. Crazy.
It was a fabulous week leading up to my birthday minus the horrendous Brasil loss.
CB requested a solo appearance.
And I also registered for my first triathlon. I'm really excited to experience a triathlon since it's so different than anything I've ever done before. I'll be rocking a cute TRI suit*, my hybrid mountain bike and probably walk/running the 5k portion since my ankle is still a cranky asshole.
*why is 99.99999% of TRI apparel so fugly? And yes I realize the function of the outfit is more important than looks, but I'm a firm believer of "look good, feel good." And I refuse to look like Violet Beauregarde....the blueberry girl from willy wonka.
It will be fun.
Figured I might as well put all my swimming and cycling to good use. :)
I also bought a wetsuit which should arrive today.** Based on my measurements it should fit, but after my swimsuit snafu I'm not holding my breath. I want to try some open water swimming as well as force myself to go further than 50 yards at a time.
The wetsuit fits, I think? Its very snug but I can move. My only other experience with a wetsuit was when i went SUPing in Monterey bay last year but that was a different type of wetsuit for a different type of activity.
I just have to get over swimming in the lake.
*I grew up in Florida with salt water. Lakes are something I avoided like the plague. Heat + bacteria = really unsafe lake. At least Lake Michigan is bigger....
