2. My parents are in town! While they've been here, we've cooked out, seen sights and made many a Costco run. My mom recommended a fertilizer that she says is impossible to screw up. It's a shake and feed-style format that claims if used correctly, will not burn up your plants. I'll report back on its effectiveness soon.

3. I make bad decisions, or really good ones, depending on how you look at it. From a training standpoint, signing up for a second 70.3 that's about a month away isn't a great move. From a budgeting perspective, though, getting in on a long-distance triathlon for $32 while people are unloading bibs before the transfer cut off is an excellent move. I offered $100 for a bib for the Door County Triathlon, which is the exact amount I had in my PayPal account from a freelance job. I paid the original purchaser, then paid the transfer and fees for a grand total of $32. Then I booked a campsite near the race for another $30. This will be my $32 half ironman, and my $60 Door County vacation.
