    Lil Spills for May 2013

    Friday, May 31, 2013

    My son’s dad came over yesterday when he dropped Jackson off. He told me that after he and Jackson left the game store Jackson asked ” why do those men working at the store look so depressed?” His response was ” cause they are 35 year old men working at a game store.”. Of course Jackson couldn’t understand the idea of anyone working at a game store being depressed . Jackson’s dad then said ” I know we have always told you to have passion for your job but if you are 35 working at a game store you will be just as depressed as them. Plus I will have to kill myself knowing you are 35 years old working at a game store.”
    I woke up this morning to emails and texts asking if I am safe? I left on an early flight home from Oklahoma yesterday before severe storms hit again. So I am safe and sound. It’s so scary living storm to storm.
    Jackson has 10 days before he leaves for camp. Little does he know that he is now my training partner and will be running, swimming, and biking. His school gave him a gift from Audobon Zoo for making the honor roll each trimester. He didn’t tell his dad and I that part of the gift was the ability to volunteer at the zoo. Poor kid thought he could just laze around all summer. He will be training with me in the mornings. The afternoons will be spent volunteering at the Zoo, library, and French camp. ” dude if you were old enough to work you would have a job this summer. Be thankful I am not sending you around the bars to help Kevin .”

    Our Coyote Ugly Whisky just got picked up by a big distributor !
    I am sitting inside the Delta Lounge in Atlanta waiting for my flight. My god I feel underdressed. What delta skymiles members don’t wear yoga pants and sweatshirts to travel? As the only laid back traveler in the Delta lounge I noticed that I was the only person who tipped the bartender . I must of scored some points for that !image

    Amber ( OKC assistant manager ) is on point. I just texted her asking what she was wearing tomorrow night. ” Lil I am already getting both of us Oklahoma Tshirts to wear that proceeds go directly to the Oklahoma victims.” How cool. Every bar across the country is having live news feeds to promote our Red Cross Tornado benefit ! Even Kevin called me tonight. ” hey homie what are you wearing tomorrow?” So exciting . It feels good to give back!

    My friend Frank Fumich started his 450 mile run from DC to Boston to deliver money he and his friends raised for the people injured at the Boston Marathon. He’s nuts but his heart is in the right place.
    How proud I am that tomorrow night all over the country , my bars will be raising money for the victims of the Oklahoma Tornado. I will land around 330 pm. Ready to meet and greet at the Oklahoma Coyote Ugly!! Hot damn

    Why the F.. did I look at the race results? I know I can get better at the bike and run. My coach said to me yesterday ” you hired me two weeks ago. We practiced the crawl ( swimming) for two weeks. You went in the water, freaked out, and did the breast stroke. Did it occur to you that your time would stink?” OK fine. But I didn’t drown. Now I have to do another one just so my results aren’t in the bottom quarter of the competitors.
    This will sound mean and I will apologize for this before I say it. At half marathons and 10ks there are a lot of people who show up that just want to walk. Usually they are out of shape but they get their friends together and join the program. ( Its excellent that they are doing it even if they walk). I was expecting a similar occurrence at yesterday’s triathlon. When I got there and saw all of these people who looked like models from fitness magazines, I realized ” shit I am the out of shape one.” I leaned over to Ben , the coach,( Yes I know this is mean and I am sorry) ” where are the slackers who will make me feel good about myself?” his response went something like this ” perhaps you need to find another sport.” OK thats it. I have to lose fat. ( I am fucking colombian god damn it. I was predestined to have fat thighs). I will train harder. My goal is to come in at around the 50% of people who compete. I think that is realistic.
    San Antonio rocked last night. GO NY, Memphis, OKC, and Denver!!
    happy Memorial day to all

    Chantel and I are officially Triathletes! The swim sucked! I can say without exaggeration that I came in close to last on the swim. In the pool I had logged in 400 meters at around 10 minutes . Today took me close to 17 minutes. Urgh. The transition is hard from swim to run You run on wobbly legs to your bike . I hadn’t adjusted my helmet correctly . I actually had to ask a volunteer to help me. I also needed to change my shirt. That adds time . I made a decent time on the bike . Definitely need a better bike. I used a mountain bike hybrid. Its not fast. But I would count the people I would pass to give me encouragement. I was able to pass 15 people on the bike. Yeah.
    Very Scary when the good people whiz past you on the bike. It’s very humbling. The hardest part for me emotionally was the transition from the bike to the run. I had intellectually theorized to myself that I would cruise from bike to run. I had no idea how heavy my legs would feel. The first mile was so hard. I would have to stop and rub the cramps out of my legs. I finally got into a groove and pressed forward the last two miles. So wonderful having friends there for me. This was the first race where I had people cheering me on. Kevin, Judy, Lynn, and my trainer Ben were there. ( Ben has a video of me coming out of the water saying ” that sucked”. Lol ) Really nice feeling running across the finish line to friends!
    Again my time sucked. I wanted to hit 1 hour and 30 minutes but I finished in 1 hour and 47 minutes. I just have to practice more then two weeks. Lol. But I did it!! No drowning today!

    Sunday, May 26, 2013

    I woke this morning to a good luck text from the Austin girls. So sweet. Means a lot to me. OK Bike check in is at 6 am. Let’s do this shit!

    Hot Damn we made the Wall Street Journal!!!http://online.wsj.com/article/PR-CO-20130524-909635.html?mod=googlenews_wsj
    When I started the company, I had been in the NY Times, Time Out Magazine, GQ and about a dozen more magazines and papers. My father never acknowledged anything until I was in the Wall Street Journal. All the previous accolades meant nothing but the Wall Street Journal was finally something he could be proud of. LOL. ” Well Dad this is a twofer for Coyote Ugly”
    OK allowing myself to eat starches today for the big race. Fuck swimming. Chantel and I received our race numbers today and went to the briefing. Instead of getting back in the water I decided that the only course of action was to get a pedicure and buy some new running shirts. If all else fails, go shopping.

    Friday, May 24, 2013

    Chantel and I had our first open water swim today. I was very scared. The waves were hitting us while we swam and it was very disorienting . I left the water with a real fear of drowning . We wore wetsuits, although the water was warm enough not to need them. The wetsuits make you more buoyant but its very restrictive. When I would start to feel disoriented I would go immediately into the breast stroke . That’s my safety swim stroke. The wetsuit was so restrictive that I was not getting enough propulsion with my legs to do the breast stroke well. I feel totally deflated right now.
    I need to regroup. Sunday is the race.
    Heading to OKC on Wednesday!

    Oh god! I am sick. I just received an email from one of my lawyers with a link. http://www.wjhg.com/home/headlines/Parents-Leave-Kids-in-Car-to-Drink-at-Coyote-Ugly-Saloon-208668711.html
    Is it true that any press is good press? Oh god this disgusts me! I can’t wait to fall asleep so I can wake up to a better day.

    You are fucking kidding me!!!!!! Last night I went out with friends and had a bunch of wine. Like a responsible adult I decided not to drive home. This morning I went to pick up my car. From two blocks away I could see that there was no bike on the bike rack. FUCK!!! I borrowed my friend’s bike for the triathlon.FUCK!!! I even bought a new seat and bike computer for it. FUCK!!!I called her to tell her how sorry I was and that I would purchase her a new bike. FUCK!! I just went online to search for this particular bike. It’s $5000!!!! FUCKFUCKFUCK
