So after bitching about The Hunger Games I decided I needed to play well with others (others being my book club who wanted to talk about it) so I downloaded the first part, thoroughly prepared to hate it. I did not. I was just about as sucked in as a person can be. I HAD to know how it turned out although the fact that the book is written in the 1st person is kind of a clue. I’m reading the 2nd installment now. I hear the trilogy doesn’t get really good until the 3rd book so I’m fully prepared for that.
And remember that thing where I broke up with triathon? Well… much to my surprise I find myself registered for IM Canada – Aug 26, 2012. How the hell??!!!! 2 women from my first newbie triathlete group signed up and well… I thought, “hey – I could train with them! This could be fun!” And then I pulled the trigger so I guess you could say I’m all in – ’cause that’s what we triathletes like to say. “I’m all in – I’m toeing the line” Day-um!
Until then this is the tape I need to keep playing in my head
Woot! Go 21CM!
Glad you got “into” the Hunger Games-altho by the third book I was ready for it to be over (too much like the first two…but that’s my take).
So excited to watch you begin you Ironman training. And jealous you have ladies to train with…! All my training ladies moved out of state!
(Have to find some new “friends” for my next big one!)
I love how they keep putting the finish line ribbon back up for the ironmen and ironwomen to run through. Some day…
I got sucked into the trilogy too. My kids loved the books, so I was skeptical, but it was actually a great read.
