Okay, I admit it.
I didn't watch BL tonight.
No BL, no Facebook commenting.
A big something came up this evening and I was faced with a choice to watch, or to get my work done ahead of time so I can attend to personal things over the next few days.
But as luck would have it, I was walking through the living room to the kitchen for some more coffee when I heard it:
"And now I'm training for an Ironman!"
So of course I stop dead in my tracks and there's Blaine in full bike gear - helment and all.
I must watch.
And this is what followed:
Blaine: It's over a mile and half swim-
Megan's Mind: ....umm...that doesn't sound right....
Blaine: And an 80 mile bike-
Megan's Mind: ....what the fuckity fuck....?.....
Blaine: And then a half marathon!
Megan's Mind: wrong answer.
And then I paused, and thought, "Eh, but who cares? It's still a massive accomplishment to go from over 300 pounds to training for such a big race, Ironman or not. I can get onboard with that goal! Go on with your new bad self!"
But the funniest part (and what compelled me to write this even though I can't speak to anything else that happened on it tonight) was that I immediately got two emails, one from Danielle and one from Michelle - both like (paraphrased), "Oh my gosh - can you believe!" So much so that I literally laughed out loud as I read them - thanks guys! That totally made my night!
So yeah, good for him. And good for triathlon in general. I support anyone that puts triathlon on the map.
Well, maybe not JLo. She bugs me.
Okay - back to work!!!
