I woke up with a massive headache this morning. And by this morning, I mean 2 AM. I took Advil, went back to sleep, and woke up at 4:30 AM in order to get to the pool. I fought my way through an ugly swim, headache still raging, and went home to sleep for another hour in hopes that it would finally subside. Unfortunately, it did not and I think it’s going to be one of those days. Sigh.
Since the universe knew I was in need of a laugh, it graciously worked through a friend. I just opened this gem of an email from the Redhead’s (bestie) husband (bestie-by-marriage). Thanks James. I needed this.

Look, I found a rare Ironman Chattanooga picture. How nice of the main sponsor, Little Debbie, to leave all those Swiss Rolls in the water for the swimmers. A real first class event! Everyone knows Swiss Rolls typically float—or at least initially float. Something about the buoyancy or some science thing like that. I don’t care, they are delicious.
Have a great weekend everyone!
I would set an IM swim PR if they had those in the water as I would look like Homer Simpson chomping down as I moved from one to the next on the way down the river.
haha love this! I still find it so odd to have them as a sponsor!
I love that man. 🙂
I will start learning how to swim tomorrow if there are some swiss cake rolls waiting for me in the pool!!!
Little known fact….one of my nicknames as a kid was Laura hoho. A) fat kid at heart b) my birthday cakes were made of hoho's and c) sign me up.
I might do an ows with a Swiss roll!! (Time for a blog binge…. Aren't you lucky?!)
