Which made it nice and easy to wake up early to go cheer on some friends for the San Diego International Triathlon. I made a sign for my good friend LG and parked my ass on my beach chair right downtown. I have to say I have never said "look'n good" "keep it up" "almost there" to more people in my life, and a few "best looking guy out here" to a few of the older men. I was right by a major intersection that they had to keep open even though the runners were going through. I saw about 4 people almost get killed by cars, one being a teammate of mine. So I was also throwing out "don't get hit by that bus" to many people. At one point the crazy traffic director yelled to a car "watch out for the joggers" and I yelled back in their defense "Sir, they are not joggers, they're triathletes" he apologized and did not make that mistake again. The triathletes loved it. It was such a beautiful day to race and I got to see many teammates go by looking strong and LG with her cute little swagger and cheerful disposition "this is fun!!!" as others were not looking so hot. Gotta love a good race day!
So for me today the pain held off til around 10am which is an improvement so that is good. I am going to do a little bike/run/bike/run today to not feel like a total sloth. Then possibly hit the beach cause Bri would like to "slay some waves" today with some of our friends. Then its time for a massage. Life is tough. I will be sure to update on tomorrows Dr appointment. I think I need to suck it up and actually get the MRI that my Dr suggested a few weeks ago. I thought this would be over and done with so I turned it down originally but now I would just like to rule out any other nonsense so I can move forward and treat this properly. I am not sure if drinking heavily before an MRI is recommended or not, but its either that or tranquilizers!
