(Make sure to say the title of the post with your nose in the air like a bratty, snotty 19 year old "trust fund baby.")
Last weekend, I saw the April / May 2010 "Midwest Events Magazine" for the first time. It's a local magazine that shows up on free newstands (like at gyms, coffee shops, bookstores, etc). This is what the April / May 2010 issue looks like:
Here's the next page:
• Cathy Yndestad (the USAT Female Triathlete of the Year) snapped that GREAT photo of me used on that page. It's from the Liberty Triathlon last year. Thanks Cathy! You're published! ;) (Oh, and on that note, Pharmie took the big photo on the first page, so she's a published photographer too!)
• If you didn't know the whole story of why my blog is called "Steve in a Speedo?! Gross!", now you do!
• Don't tease me for that swim time. We all start somewhere! I actually fondly look back on that race quite often.
• There are lots of "THANKS" to be said in the part about improving my swim. Coach Jen Harrison lets me swim her workouts with Julia, and it's been making me faster. So thanks Jen and Julia! And "the gang" that I refer to are all the people that sometimes swim with Julia: Kelly, Steve H, Steve T, Kathryn, Pam, Sara, Dan, and anyone else I might be forgetting!
• Now you know how Pharmie got her name as well! AND you know her real name!
• I doubt anyone knows the first point under "What is one (or two) things that most people wouldn't know about you?" But none of you should be surprised. ;)
Here's the final page of the interview:
• They edited out a part about Linsey Corbin's butt. Right after the last sentence in that section, there SHOULD be this:
In fact, if you search youtube for a video called "Linsey Corbin's Butt," you might just find it under my account. Jeez, sometimes I seem pretty creepy....
• My "oddest" race experience IS pretty odd. But I didn't even mention that there was a cat toy in my running shoe, so I did the 13.1 mile run with my big toe pushing up against one of Kermit's toys! Here's part 1 of that race report, and here's part 2.
• And here are 2 questions that Sean asked that got totally edited out:
Who would win in a fight....Mark Bongers vs. John Larson? [These are 2 pretty well-known local race directors: Mark runs Final Stretch, and John runs Team Ortho.] Sorry John, but I think Mark would take you. Those redheads... they're scrappy! Plus, the Team Ortho jerseys seem to have a target right on the middle of the chest. Ha!
Tell us about your 2 cats - names, personalities, unique characteristics. I'll let my wife field this one: "We've always joked that they actually have the personality of dogs. They love people, fetching, and rolling in gross things. Ella is twitchy and excitable like a young labrador. Kermit is low-key and docile like a bloodhound." Yes, one of our cats is named Kermit even though they are sisters. I told Sarah that I REALLY needed to name something "Kermit," and it was either one of our cats, or one of our (future) kids. So now we have a female cat named Kermit.
So if you're a local, pick up a copy of Midwest Events and look for that article! Thanks for the interview, Sean!
