I've lost two followers! Really guys, I'm not the over-competitive misogynistic whiner I pretend to be on this blog (I'm a slightly different kind of over-competitive whiner).
Today is Fat Tuesday and I'm eating a King Cake all by myself in celebration, for tomorrow I get serious about a lot of things, from diet (10 pounds overweight yet) to training. It's also day three of Chinese New Year's, where the traditional greeting translates to "Earn More Money Next Year!" [How's that communism thing going, comrade?]
One interesting thing in the Olympic coverage has been reporters following athletes after their competitions are over. They suddenly have all time and no worries and find themselves in a place filled with young attractive people, so the question being asked has been, "Who's your Olympic crush?" I'm glad I'm not the only one who follows an athlete without understanding their sport. I usually end up cheering for the Dutch women speedskaters, but this year an Irish bobsledder (or as they say, bobsleigher) has caught my eye; her parents gave her and her sister Siobhan the ultimate tonguetwister Gaelic names [for the uninitiated, Siobhan="Shavonne" and Aoife="Eefa"]
I also kinda like Mukmuk, the unofficial mascot.
Training update will have to come later....
