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

Because If You Can't Laugh At Yourself, Who Can You Laugh At?

The Internet is a scary thing. I decided to Google Image myself tonight just to see what pictures of me are on the World Wide Web. Actually, I Google-Imaged "Carrie Sapp" and this gem popped up:

Um...ick...Nice "Mom Shorts" Carrie. This was actually taken in the Fall of 2004 and it was part of an article for "Austin Woman Magazine" about the Female Comedy Scene in Austin. Yep, I was a part of that too at one point in my life. It feels like another lifetime ago even though I still incorporate irreverent comedy into my daily life. I know one thing. It was DEFINTIELY at least 20 lbs ago. Ironically, in the text of the article, it says that I dream of someday doing an Ironman...Hell Yeah Bitches....Ironman--double check.

To read the full text of the article that ran wwaaaayyyyy back in 2005, click HERE:

Enjoy the chuckle. I know I did! Like I said, you never know what you'll find on the Internet!

I like how you still have the same squint of determination on your brow.

You know, it's kind of nice to look back and see how far you've come. Only having seen you in the last couple of years, I wouldn't have recognized that woman as you. Congratulations on all the things you've accomplished since then.
