A Sign From God?...

>> Monday, July 20, 2009

Pharmie hopped on the scale to weigh herself last week. We have a digital scale that gives a reading down to the 1/10th of a pound.

What did she weigh?


She’s taking it as a sign from above. A few days ago, she came home from a shopping trip with a smirk on her face. She had bought a “New Zealand Travel Guide.”

We’ll see where this all leads...

(If “140.6” doesn’t mean anything to you, click here to see what I’m talking about...)

That was a good omen!!!

The adventures of Pharmie and Steve in a Speedo from NZ?
Yes, please!

Your wife allowed you to post her weight on the internet?

Nicole 11:07 AM, July 20, 2009  

that's my 140.6 dream for 2013...gotta finish graduate school first!! I say it's a clear sign from God!

Ha! My first thought when I thought about IM was IM NZ. I still have not ruled it out as my first IM. Don't know when . . .

Staying tuned . . . .

Awesome! Do it.

Maria 11:30 AM, July 20, 2009  

oh...IM in NZ...do it do it!

Katie 11:49 AM, July 20, 2009  

Publicly posting your wife's weight is ballsy!!

I can see the significance of the number tho, 140.6 is no joke!

They had a show on IM NZ from a couple years ago on tv the other weekend. I watched the entire thing! Half because I love IM shows and half because of their kicky accents.

Publicly posting your wife's weight ON YOUR ANNIVERSARY...now that takes guts! :)

Why do you guys always do the early season long distance races?

Is Pharmie really game for seven hours, on the trainer, in the basement, in February?

Pretty cool! In 2007 my mileage for swimming biking and running totaled 2007 miles! (Actually 2006.8) I swear that I did not plan it!

Borsch 2:00 PM, July 20, 2009  

Wow...I just talked about that with her like two weeks ago and she was dead set on not doing another for a while!

Tell her to wait until 2012 or later! Right now I think I want to tackle one of these some day but it can't be during school.

Stefanie 3:48 PM, July 20, 2009  

Rock On.

Heck right now I am at 143.6... I need Pharmies Weight. I don't want to do any extra mileage.

CoachLiz 8:53 PM, July 20, 2009  

I know someone who has done that race and she said it was AWESOME!!! I hope the mojo goes your way!

A celebrity in town. Now that would be cool. Are you looking at March 2010?

Maggs 12:15 AM, July 21, 2009  

Sweet! I might do that one too!

Pip 2:00 AM, July 21, 2009  

Oooh, oooh, oooh - and if you head this way then you'll of course have to drop by Wellington so I can take you guys for a run round our lovely city! Or something ....

Lucinda 3:31 AM, July 21, 2009  

That would be awesome! You can come and stay with me in Wellington, I will be your support team/official Australian living in New Zealand squad supporter!

That's a big number! (Don't tell her I said that...lol). Sounds like the universe is speaking to you, can you hear it?

Ms. R 8:30 AM, July 24, 2009  

HAHA! That's fantastic and I would take it as a sign too.

Kate 4:51 AM, July 25, 2009
