Things That Make Me Smile...

Two posts in two days--score!! I have been very overwhelmed by work and training lately. I am behind on many things and my house hasn't been 'clean' in a while. It makes me a little anxious. That being said, I am trying to reflect on things that make me smile:
  • My co-worker (and friend) set up a date with someone he's really interested in. He's excited and it makes me happy to see that.
  • I share a love of clotted cream with my Triabuddy Zoe and her dad. We had some on Sunday, YUM!
  • A couple of my Triabetes teammates just got new bikes. A new bike is so fun and makes you want to get out there and tear it up! It makes me appreciate my bike--which I found time to clean, she deserved it after what I have put her through lately.
  • I have all of my documentation together to appeal my health insurance's rejection for a CGM. I am so happy that I have found the time to get this done. We'll see how my doctor's appointment goes tomorrow when I hand it over. (I hope that makes me smile.)
  • Seeing how many people who support me and what I am trying to do with Insulindependence! I am really touched that so many people are supportive. THANK YOU!

I have now run out of the few minutes I had to do this. Back to work......

I AM a Triathlete

Just a quick note to state the obvious, but I have recently realized and accepted that I am a triathlete. I am not a runner who dabbles in two other sports. I am not a swimmer looking for more open water racing opportunities. I have been specifically training for this sport for almost 10 years. I plan to continue doing this sport for a while more. Additionally, you don't have to be an elite athlete or age-group goddess to qualify. I realized that this makes me a full fledged Triathlete! Cool!

Caveat: Just so that I don't create confusion. I am a Glucomotive captain next year. I am not a "runner". I am a triathlete building on and developing my run skills!
