I donated blood today on a whim. Scott & White had brought one of those RVs out to the plaza by the MSC, and since I had two hours to kill, I signed up. I'd never donated blood before, and everything was going peachy until I'd finished and the nurse-person pulled the needle out, at which point I clearly recall saying "I feel really lightheaded all of a sudden." I came to a few minutes later, covered in cold wet washclothes, sweating, and in a different lounge chair than I had been in two minutes earlier. O_o

Moral of the story -- Don't donate blood on an empty stomach.

But I DID get a free sweatshirt! w00t!

I finally decided on a New Year's resolution. Brace yourself, and please don't laugh. (. . .) I'm going to run a sprint-length triathlon. It's a 1/4 mile swim, a 12 mile bike ride, and a 3 mile run. I found a training program designed for people like me who have next to no athletic instincts, and over the course of 22 weeks, builds you up to the point where you could run a sprint triathlon. I bought new running shoes on Sunday (they're pink! aha!) and I need a new training swimsuit. I was going to start today, but after this recent development (see above, ahem) they told me to take it easy for the next 24 hours.

I want to create a separate journal to keep a training log in, but I have no ideas for a name. Any suggestions?
