Hey, if I can get out of bed these days without something hurting, I'm good.

This Past Week Was INSANELY Awesome!

Buell 1125R

Buell 1125R

The only thing I didn’t do was make a BASE Jump.  I flew my wingsuit and then Shawn came in town and we streetluged like mad, using the bikes to tow each other up the hill–which was awesome!  We rode motorcycles a lot, Ortega Hwy to pick up my luge leathers, went to the beach for dinner and the marine layer rolled in, it was amazing. I tried out the Buell 1125R on the way back, plus again on Sunday.  SO much power. Rode to Palomar, parked mine and then rode on the back of the Buell to see what the tight side of Palomar was like (up and down) with a professional racer at the helm. Nice. I screamed most of the way.

Also rode horses for several hours, fenced for several hours to the point that I have so many contact bruises on me where I had no hard protection, it is not funny. We streetluged some more, went wine tasting, ate sushi, it just didn’t end.  I am exhausted.  But ecstatic.

My race is coming up so soon so I am in constant need of practice. Justin did a run with me on Saturday near my house and commented it was a scary run, suggested that I do Mesa Grande and that I would be fine with it.  I am supposed to do a few runs on Templin Hwy but that’s 2 1/2 hours of driving for a couple hours of runs. Eeek. I need a driver!  I can’t luge if I have no transportation up the hill each time. I’ll pay for your gas 🙂  But it will be good to run with Steve again.  I skipped out on Barrett this weekend but will go next weekend if they are running. Then it’s off to Mexico for tacos afterwards 🙂

Will post pics soon.


Extreme Beauty Tips for Fencers

Fencing
Fencing Rocks! I am assuming not many of you fence, but you really should try it. It is over very quickly though–each round seems to fly by. You get sweaty as can be and blisters are very possible. Stay protected because you can get some nasty bruises on your wrists; well, if you’re up against me you will because I go for the wrist!.

Fencing is actually not a difficult sport to stay cute while partaking in. It is rigorous, but in short spurts so it is feasible to keep up appearances. Not that it matters, because WINNING matters 😉 However, this is an article about beauty…

•Stay Hydrated: You may not be in the sun and the matches may be short-lived, but the constrictive gear and the demanding nature of fencing will heat you up in no time. Be sure to drink a generous amount of water while competing.

•Baby wipes: Throw a pack in your bag. Your underarms will get nasty and the rest of you, quite skanky. Prepare in advance and bring some baby wipes!

•Mirror: Throw a compact mirror in your gear bag. No matter how demanding the sport, you can always check your appearance after you are finished. You can at least touch up your powder and check your nose for nastiness.

• Make-up: I commonly have a travel compact of mineral foundation when I engage in sports such as fencing. I use Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Mineral Foundation and some lip gloss. I would use waterproof mascara and go light on the eyeliner, unless you want to look like a raccoon. I do wear eyebrow pencil but I would wear eyebrow pencil in a hurricane.

• Hair: Throw your hair up in a ponytail. No use destroying it. You will have a mask on so it really doesn’t matter what it looks like as long as it stays knot-free.

• Nails: I honestly prefer to have short nails when I fence. Wearing fencing gloves when you have long nails can be uncomfortable, and dangerous. You can rip one off quite easily without ever even having your hands much as touched with a feather. Just the movements needed with fencing can cause you to break nails..

At The End Of The Day
Shower, stinky. I am sorry but the suit alone and the mask are both going to cause you to sweat up a nasty storm. If you’re single you can go home and stink all you want. Unless, of course, you are trying to attract a mate. But, if you live with someone? Please do them the favor of washing the nastiness off before you sit next to them.

En Garde!


Extreme Beauty Tips for Fencing Enthusiasts

Fencing
Fencing Rocks! I am assuming not many of you fence, but you really should try it. It is over very quickly though–each round seems to fly by. You get sweaty as can be and blisters are very possible. I use a French rubber grip, and not a pistol grip, so I tend to get more friction and hand fatigue. Stay protected because you can get some nasty bruises on your wrists; well, if you’re up against me you will because I go for the wrist!.
