15 Things

1. My dog makes me smile at least 12 times each day.

2. In a perfect world, I would eat pizza 4 times a week.

3. I desperately want to live where I can step out of my house and run trails. 

4. Riding beside the semi transporting chickens is incredibly depressing. And guilt-inducing.

5. I am mystified by people who stay in their workout clothes for hours. Those sopping sweaty stuck-to-my-thighs shorts would be off my body before I got in the car if it were socially acceptable.

6. There is one week left in August, and I have not gone swimming this year. (Let's have a moment of silence for the passing of a time when summer vacations existed.)

7. I wouldn't trade growing up with two brothers for anything in the world.

8. I am in awe of our two coaches. Making an ironman seem like something fun and attainable is a testament to A. Their talent. B. My skewed sense of reality.

9. I ate my first Swedish Fish in college. I've spent the last XX years making up for lost time.

10. Summer nights with the windows open and the fan spinning are incredibly peaceful.

11. Every week, I miss my conversations with people under the age of 10. Their honesty, humor, and sincerity is amazing.

12. Summer olympics are infinitely better than winter olympics.

13. People who have phone conversations in public restrooms astound me. Don't they care that the person on the other end can hear the toilets flushing?!

13a. I once overheard a women having a job interview over the phone from a bench in an airport restroom.

14. I don't know if it's a southern thing or a carb thing, but I'm down with pretty much any corn-based foods. (Special shout outs to cornbread, corn tortillas, and corn pudding.)

15. The beach vs. mountains debate may never be settled for me.
