Questions and Answers with Julie -The Answers Part 2 The Final Chapter

Well here it is the final installment of Q & A with Julie It's nearly as exciting as Part 1


BDD (needs no introduction) asked:

If barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?
- Do penquins have knees?
- How does asprin find the headache?
- If Teflon is stick free, how do they get it to stick to the pan?
- When someone yells "headsup!!" why does everyone duck?

BDD these are all great questions, I however have the answers to none, so I will direct you to one of many with more knowledge than myself.

Terzah BQby40 asked

I hate hot weather for running. But maybe it's actually good for tris. Where do you come down on the weather question?

I prefer the cool weather, hot is not good for tri’s either. A nice 75ish degrees would be perfect...Doesn’t often happen for sure.

Does the idea of swimming in the ocean scare you? Because it seriously freaks me out...

I love, love, love to play in the ocean. Although I’ve never scuba diver, snorkeling is fantastic! However, the idea of doing a tri with an ocean swim and waves...not so much.

Christi Pedestrian Runner asks

When are you going to come do the Incline with me?

I must say I’m a little intimidated by the looks of that climb...but maybe sometime in the near future when you and Jill have no better way to spend a day you can drag my sorry butt up it.

What is your most embarrassing race story?

I cannot think of a single one! Most of my races have gone pretty good, not that I haven’t made some dumb mistakes, like leaving transition without my race belt but I’ve never been embarrassed. Wait does walking up Old Stage during the race count...I found it a little embarrassing....or maybe that was humiliating?

Which SBR sport do you like best?

Biking! I really love to be on my bike. Often when I'm out running and get passed by a cyclist I think "I wish I was on my bike!"

Brad Pitt or George Clooney?
Either is fine...I’ve been on my own quite awhile now. :)

Beer or wine?

I’m not a big drinker these days but depending on what I’m doing, an ice cold Corona is fantastic or a nice glass of merlot...but if I really want to have fun a Lemon drop martini or gosh you know a gin and tonic is sound real good too...I think maybe a good time is on the horizon after I finish this 70.3!

Summer or Winter?

Summer for sure!

What is your favorite color?

I don’t have a favorite but I seem to always be drawn towards pink of any shade.

Adena at She said I needed a goal

A day in the life of your food.. what do you eat in a typical day?

A lot of food! Will just use today since I can’t remember what I ate yesterday


2 egg omelet with a ton of veggies, spinach, broccoli slaw, onion and mushrooms and 2% cheddar cheese, maybe ¾ cup chocolate almond milk.

Morning snack ½ cup blueberries with some Greek yogurt sprinkled with Kashi Go Lean

Lunch: Chicken wrap again with a bunch of veggies, lettuce, red onion, sprouts, a can of Amy’s Minestrone soup, which for the record is not normal, but my freezer is empty of soups, and I didn’t think it was that great, and an apple

Afternoon/pre-workout snack banana and peanut butter

100 minute run – 6 chomps and one gu

Dinner: 3 tostadas with refried beans, sour cream and lettuce

There may or may not have also been a handful of Mike & Ike’s as well as a few chocolate chips.

No wonder I’m not losing any weight these days huh?

What is your favorite of the three sports?

Answered that one above Bike!

Do you play any other sports?


Are your boys interested in triathlon at all?

Ha, ha! Not one bit, they start to roll their eyes when I talk to long about it. Of course they are teenagers they are really only interested in themselves most of the time anyway.

Most importantly tell me something super funny.

Wow this is a hard one. We laugh a lot around here but off the top of my head the only thing I can think of is something I shared recently on another blog. A year ago or so my youngest son said to my older son “You know Josh you would look just like Mom if you had a mustache.”....gotta love them...right?

JohnP from Lord of the Chainrings

There are only 2 types of people in this world - those that pee in their wetsuit and those that dont admit to peeing in there wetsuit. Which one are you?

I’ll pee in it if I can, problem is a lot of times I just can’t.

What are you scared of the most?

How deep do you want to get here? I’ve got plenty of things that scare me. Everything I keep typing seems deeper then I want to go right now so I will go with one that pertains to triathlon. I’m scared to death that one day I will wake up and find I’ve signed up for full Ironman which is why I’ve given strict instructions to all to slap me hard if I mention it.

What was your most embarrasing moment?

I have absolutely no memory so I’m having a hard time thinking back...I know that I’ve been embarrassed many times in fact I can think of many from my teenage years but nothing more current or that I would consider my “most”.

Did you cheer or cry when Old Yeller got put down?

Cried of course!!!

What drives you to want to do Boulder?

Just to see if I can do it. I know it won’t be fast but with every distance I concur I’m driven to find out if I can do just a little more.

Is it a Myth that ladies NEVER pass gas?

It's a myth.

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed learning something about me as much as I enjoyed learning about you!

Awww, they were wacky enough you could have made some wacky answers

Terzah said...

Yeah, waves....shudder.

The thing about tris...it seems to me inhumane that you have to do the swim FIRST, when it's cooler outside. A swim might actually feel good after biking and running, and when things have heated up. Maybe they're just afraid the athletes will all be so tired they will drown by that point....
