Did you miss my Discovery Cove adventure on Saturday?!?! I could relive that day over and over again and never grow bored of it. 🙂
It has been a wet and rainy morning in Central Florida. The perfect way to start off a Monday, right? Luckily it was merely ‘drizzling’ when I woke up so I was able to get a quick 5 mile run in before the down pour began. 🙂
Good news!! I ordered a new Garmin!
As so many of you pointed out to me yesterday – thanks guys! – Amazon’s daily deal for Sunday May 16th was the Garmin Forerunner 305; which was marked down to $124.99 with free shipping! Score! I ordered one faster then you could say “great deal!” It should be here in 5 –7 business days. Hopefully, that will be in time for my triathlon on Sunday. Fingers crossed!
For breakfast I made a great bowl of berry-ful cereal
- 1/2 cup Cheerios
- 1/2 cup Shredded Wheat
- 1/2 cup Honey Puffs
- Sprinkle of Chia Seeds
- Plain Yogurt
I believe this was my first taste of blueberries for 2010. I’m so happy they are finally coming into season. Now all I need is black berries and raspberries to follow suit and I will be all set for the summer. 😉
They Do Exist
Every Florida’s triathlete’s worst nightmare was realized this weekend when a local man was bitten by an alligator during a training swim in Lake Mary Jane at Moss Park on Sunday. (Full Story)
I am not normally one to ‘fear the water,’ but the fact that my triathlon is this coming Sunday has turned me into a bundle of nerves in reference to this news! Granted the triathlon on Sunday does not take place at the same lake, but it’s guaranteed that every lake in Florida has at least one alligator, if not several.
Luckily I won’t be the only one who will be entering the water this weekend. I’ll be surrounded by a couple of hundred of competing buddies who will hopefully scare all the alligators away. Now my new goal is to stay with the pack. If I feel myself slowing down I will just think of the gators and I’m sure the speed will come. There is no bigger motivator than fear, well for me at least. I will not become gator bait. 🙂
