Oh The Pain

I’m having a pain.  Actually I’m having a couple.

My first pain is that I really, really, really want to register for the New York City Triathlon but there are a bunch of reasons why that might not be my race this year so I just can’t.  Registration for USAT members is open now and it costs $225 and I SO want to do that race.  It’s killing me.  That would be a great time to go to the East Coast because I could do the race and then go hang out with my sister.  However, there are other vacations that I want to take and there is Vineman 70.3 just a week before the NYC triathlon and then there is the small matter of me having no money right now so I’ll have to let this go by.  *whimper*

My other pain is in my legs.  OW.  I went on a ride today with Dana and Maggs and I was pitiful.  Every time we went uphill my thighs just burned and they never got better. I bailed at the top of a big hill because going down the other side was even steeper and I knew I’d never make it back up.  I bid them fairwell and headed home, going in circles for a bit because I have such a bad sense of direction.  I made i eventually, though and now my legs are still in pain.  I’m not sure what I’ll do tomorrow.  I’ll let my legs figure it out for me.

Of course the last pain is the kind induced by eating too much sugar.  Stupid Halloween!

    Hope the leg pain goes away, but I vote for giving in to the New York and candy pains!

    Love the quote from Princess Bride, Suzee!

    Here’s my advice, P.

    Rest. Lay on the couch with a Sudoku puzzle and a Baileys.

    Oooohhh, but sugar pain is good pain – don’t run from it!

    Just out of curiosity, what’s your poison?

    Today, mine was cheery licorice sticks.

    And some JuJufruits.

    But don’t let the words “fruit” fool ya.

    I sense you to be more of a chocolate gal though….
