Three thing Thursday.....Randomness


1. Why would they take away the porta-potty that I planned to stop at on my morning run??? This not really a good thing.... you should be able to count on your potty stops.......


2. Completely enjoying the USA Pro Cycling Challenge. Even though I'm not able to watch much since I'm at work I've been listening to it on line. So fun to hear about these riders right here in your own state! They were riding through Buena Vista today, which is where I just was rafting. I'm up in the air as to how I'm going to handle them being here in town. I really want to go somewhere and watch, but on the other hand I would love to see the whole thing on TV. I really want to see them ride up Lookout Mtn and see just how much faster the do it then I do! It's cool to know that all of these great riders will be riding on the same streets that I have! If I go to watch with the exception of a couple of places they will pass more then once, they will go by so fast it will hardly be worth it....decisions, decisions...


3. Banana soft serve...this stuff is sooooo good and pretty good for you! I made it with some Silk Light Chocolate Soymilk, a little peanut butter and just a tiny bit of chocolate syrup...I think this could take the place of ice cream...well most of the time..

I went to the prologue and it was so awesome! Luckily we had a computer set up so we could see the online streaming of the race because we really saw the racers for a split second. And you are right it is very cool to see them racing on the roads that we ride all the time!

Bahahaha!!!

- I would go and watch, I would find a spot semi early in the race and then find a route and book it to the finishline and watch the finish

In the fall, they start locking one of my regular bathroom spots and take away a porta-potty on another route. It's a tough life when you run.

I plan my runs etc on bathroom stops! There has to at least be a tree, shrub something!

How do you make the banana soft serve? It sounds like heaven, me loves bananas and "ice cream" :)

I think it'd be cool to see the cycling live, but then you only see them for a microsecond and then they're gone and you're stuck in traffic for hours. I guess you can go and then watch it on channel 73 in the evening when they do a replay every night...that's what I do. Well, not go and see them personally, but watch the rerun at night.

Sorry about your potty...I'd write a letter to the editor of the Denver Post - let's get that potty back!!! :)

BTW, I am a little tired of these record setting hot days. Bleh!

I've been using this recipe for a long time ( I think from Angela as well) and I love the simplicity of the only real ingredient needed being the banana! My food processor whips it up good. I have to admit I love adding in chocolate chips, though :)

I am so addicted to the Pro Cycling Tour too! Those guys are amazing and I wish sooooo bad I could have gone to one of the stages :(
