Three Things Thursday

1. Today, I biked. And you’re never gonna guess where, so I’m going to tell you. I biked through Creepyville. And I survived!

I know I said I would never, ever, ever bike there again, but it looked fairly safe today with lots of activity going on, so I went for it.

I guess the rail trail club rides the tracks during the week. I had to hop off the trail to let them pass at one point.

I knew I wanted to do more than 6 miles and I didn’t feel like going into town and back twice. I thought Creepyville was 6 or 8 miles one way, but it was only 3, so I went the other way into town as well. Once I got there I decided to get myself an ice cream. Actually, I won’t lie, I stopped to get money out of my car as I passed it, so it was a premeditated ice cream stop.

My mom pouted at me when I told her about my ice cream stop.
You snooze you lose, sister!!
I sat along the docks and enjoyed this view as I ate my ice cream.
Even though I survived Creepyville, I was still uneasy the whole time. The second I set foot (technically wheels, HA!) on my usual route, I was more relaxed and actually enjoyed it. There are more sites and pretty things to look at on the route into town.

2. I decided along this bike ride that I do not like Nuun. Actually I had decided it twice before, but I tried it again today. I’ve given it the good ‘ol college try and I just can’t do it. It reminds me of Airborne or Emergen-C. The effervescent fizz is what gets me. It’s not carbonated, there’s just some fizz left over from the alka-seltzer-like creation that makes me gag. I’ve tried letting it sit out to get all the fizz out and throwing it in the fridge to make it super cold. I just can’t do it. So I have half a tube of Pink Lemonade and an unopened tube of Lemon Tea. If anyone wants it, please let me know.

3. Tomorrow I have big plans to bring a huge-ass iced coffee down to the beach early in the morning. Drink it while drinking in the beauty of the lake (see what I did there?) and enjoy the peace and quiet of the beach before all the families arrive for the day. Then I’ll go for a swim, dry off, maybe get some sun, get back up to the house and shower all before noon (hopefully). Then I’ll spend the afternoon at the outlets! And possibly a pedicure.  That’s my idea of a rest day before my Chunky Dunk Duathlon on Saturday.


  1. I wouldn't mind trying the pink lemonade Nuun. Is it mail-able? LOL I need to start trying stuff out to bring on the half marathon. Have you tried any gels/energy blocks that you liked and worked?

    Good luck on your duathlon, I can't wait to read about it! Tomorrow, well today now, sounds like an awesome rest day!

  2. And I just realized I said "Good luck on your duathlon, I can't wait to read about it!" as a comment to your last post too. Oops. I'm excited though!

  3. Hey Sara. I use Eletrolyte Fizz from Hammer Nutrition so I'd be willing to try the Nuun. Just let me know how much you want for it and if it'll mail.

    Good luck on your Duathlon!

  4. Amanda - I'm sure it's mailable. It's tablets in a tube. Email me your address and it's yours!

    Kyle - no charge! I wouldn't feel right charging someone for something I don't like! I'll be emailing you for your address.
