1. I'm officially half of an Ironman :). The $300 race was worth every penny and hour of preparation that I put into it over the past six months.
I guess it's easy for me to say this because my day was amazing! Even without a wetsuit, the 72 degree water felt refreshingly perfect. Then although I had to deal with a bit of leg cramping on the 56 mile bike ride, I felt strong until the end. Finally, I ended the day with the best half marathon run I could imagine and finished with a smile on my face (which was more important than any time goal I could have come up with). Woo hoo!
2. I'm putting down the paintbrush (for now) and calling this half bathroom project finished(*ish).
I'm loving the stripes, new light fixture, and black cabinet, but not so sure about my bold choice of yellow mirror. I've always loved black-white-yellow combos, but I'm not sure if it's working here yet (nothing a paintbrush can't fix later!).
What I am sure of is that it's 1,000% better than it was before:
*yes, I'm aware of the missing towel and toilet paper holders
So... "YELL-NO" or "YELL-GO-ahead and start painting everything that color because it's that good?"
