About Me

My photo
Austin, Texas, United States
I'll make you laugh, or break my neck trying. This is usually accomplished with daily bouts of swimming, biking and running. A former "chub-a-holic," I got fit and healthy the good old fashioned way and went from a mid-pack athlete to top age group runner and triathlete. I'm a Writer and USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach. I guess that makes me part Tina Fey and part Jillian Michaels. Visit my coaching site at www.fomotraining.com

Whirlwind Week

Just dropped the parents off at the airport this morning as they head back to Ohio! I'm also starting to pack because I'm also going to Ohio this weekend for my friends/family shower back home. It's sometimes very strange having two distinct lives...my Ohio life consists of friends since Kindergarten and Elementary school. These are girls who know the first boy I kissed and the first boy who broke my heart. They know my teenage obsession with New Kids and Debbie Gibson. They know that I wanted to be a famous singer/songwriter. They know that I was the obnoxious one at parties because I just wanted to make people laugh. They know the girl that would sleep til Noon whenever she couls. They know that I ate Taco Bell every day and consumed MORE than my weight in horrible, cheap beer.

My Austin friends have learned to know a separate, but not SOOOO different Carrie. They know the man I'm spending the rest of my life with. They know the girl who can't sleep past 5:30am because she has to get her sweat on in the morning. They know the girl who loves wine and martinis because she can't stand the taste of beer. They know the girl who STILL tries to make people laugh. They know the girl who eats salmon, hummus and fruit because Taco Bell makes her feel like hell (even though she still loves it). They know my adult obsession with Debbie Gibson.

Sometimes it's hard to believe that this is even the same person. I love them both and I'm glad I'm accepted for who I am!! I can't wait to see my friends and family back home this weekend for my wedding shower.


Monday: 1 Mile Swim at Barton Springs
8:53--new records!!!
9:20 (cool down)

1 hour run in my neighborhood. Felt very sluggish and fatigued. Poor eating habits this week.

5:45-6:30am swim at the Y this morning--alternating paddles, fins, regular swim
7:00am-8:00am 1 hr spin class at Castle Hill

Hope to hit Jack and Adams Core this afternoon
