Tri Stickers

in All Posts

I had a really great swim today – 1,000 meters, done and done.


One of my favorite things to do in the swim center parking lot is play “spot the racers.”  So many 13.1 (half marathon), 26.2 (marathon), 70.3 (half ironman), 140.6 (ironman) stickers in the lot.

I’ve got a marathon sticker on my car, but maybe it’s time to get a tri one, too?


Since I can’t do the 70.3 or 140.6 one, how about these (click for purchase info)?




I especially like the first one!


Lunch was millet, beans, and kale.  I steamed the kale with coconut milk and nutritional yeast – so good.




And for dinner, my in-laws and sister-in-law stopped by; they’re in town for work.  They brought over Thai food, and I was ever so grateful not to have to cook!


I have no idea what I ate, all I know is that it was vegetarian, spicy, and delicious.


Good night – it’s going to be a LONG day.

    HAHA. I love the stickers too! I want a 70.6 ASAP 🙂 Prob next year, though. I like the last tri sticker, so true that everyone should TRI one!! If they love any of the 3 sports!

    Good idea of steaming with nutr yeast!

    I have a 26.2 one on my jeep and love it. That dinner looks great

    Hi Caitlin,

    Did your inlaws end up buying a house in your new
    town yet? (or do they still stay with you?)

    I think I may have missed a post or two about that…

    • Caitlin July 1, 2011, 8:05 am

      🙁 No they didn’t. They are still traveling up every two weeks. I feel so bad for them!

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey June 30, 2011, 10:31 pm

    I love the “I see crazy people” bumper sticker – that one is fantastic!!!

    Glad you didn’t have to cook dinner tonight. There’s nothing worse than being exhausted after a long day and having to work!

  • Cheryl June 30, 2011, 10:35 pm

    Love the, “You don’t have to win, You just have to TRI!” That is a true statement!

  • Victoria (District Chocoholic) June 30, 2011, 10:38 pm

    Those marathon stickers and the like always made me wonder…can a 50 freestyler get a “0.029” sticker? Or a 100meter dash champion a “0.06” sticker? Because I totally would get those.

    • Caitlin July 1, 2011, 8:06 am

      You should. People will be like, WHAAAT.

  • jen June 30, 2011, 10:38 pm

    Caitlin I have a REQUEST! I know you did a different method in this post but could you do one of your new “prep” series on the simple steamed greens you have been having? the only way i know how to eat kale is in kale chips and i would love love to know how you make the steamed greens. i love simple flavors and i bet i would really enjoy them! thank you!

    • Caitlin July 1, 2011, 8:06 am

      Sure Jen! 🙂 I am all out of steamable greens right now but I’ll try to do it this weekend or early in the week!

      • jen July 1, 2011, 8:47 am

        yayayay ur the best thank you! want those greens in my belly!

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) June 30, 2011, 10:47 pm

    Lunch looks perfect! That’s my kind of meal! YUM! Sleep well!

  • Molly @ RDexposed June 30, 2011, 10:53 pm

    I’m loving the “TRI” sticker…as in the last one.

    An off night of cooking is always a nice surprise!

  • Bee Goes Bananas June 30, 2011, 10:58 pm

    The first one is really funny, but the third one is so true and adorable! 😉

  • Baking 'n' Books June 30, 2011, 10:59 pm

    I love the 1rst one – something I think all the time 😉

    I would inhale anything that was take-out and bought for me! Are you the clinic again tomorrow? I hope you remember to take time for yourself too girl – don’t burn candles at both ends – it’s perfect to be ambitious and something I aspire to – but stay true to your needs too 😉

    • Caitlin July 1, 2011, 8:07 am

      Thanks girl for the reminder 😉

  • Anna Crouch June 30, 2011, 11:16 pm

    I like the 3rd one!

  • Sarah for Real June 30, 2011, 11:33 pm

    You have no idea what you ate?! Let’s make it up then!

    Looks to me like you had:
    Broco-tofu-Amaze Curry
    Yellow-Lumpy-Sunshine rice
    Thai Toasted Roll of Wonder
    and one slice of Magical Jumping Cucumber

    • Caitlin July 1, 2011, 8:07 am

      Bawhwhahaha I love you.

  • Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga June 30, 2011, 11:43 pm

    I see crazy people.

    I LOVE IT!!



  • Katie @ Nourishing Flourishing June 30, 2011, 11:43 pm

    I made my husband finally try millet these past two nights. He was confused, then pleased, then really, really full. Hehe 🙂 Cute stickers!

  • Holley @ Lunges and Lashes June 30, 2011, 11:48 pm

    oh man, i LOVE thai food. i think i could eat it every day. 😉

  • Amanda @ The Beauty Notebooks June 30, 2011, 11:51 pm

    Best wishes with all of your writing tomorrow! Inspires me to write a book 😉

  • Mac June 30, 2011, 11:59 pm

    I’m not really sure what millet is, but it looks yummy!

  • Jeanelle @ Glocal Girl July 1, 2011, 12:52 am

    I love the last sticker! I also am on the hunt for nutritional yeast in Holland now, I see it all over fitness & foodie blogs… must find.

  • Jackie @ That Deep Breath July 1, 2011, 12:56 am

    I love the first “Crazy People” sticker. So funny!!

  • Jen July 1, 2011, 2:15 am

    Sticker #1 – for sure! :!

  • Khushboo July 1, 2011, 2:43 am

    “You don’t have to win, you just have to tri”- LOVE IT!

  • Aine @ Something to Chew Over July 1, 2011, 5:03 am

    Has to be the crazy people sticker!

  • Kristy@RunTheLongRoad July 1, 2011, 5:08 am

    Whenever I see 140.6, I literally want to bow to those people…that’s just incredible!

    • Caitlin July 1, 2011, 8:08 am

      Me too!

  • Sarah July 1, 2011, 7:16 am

    You lunch looks awesome. At first I thought you cooked the millet with coconut milk and nutritional yeast which excited me. Then I saw it was the kale, which excited me more! I will try both:)

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin July 1, 2011, 7:56 am

    Haha I love the first one! My family sometimes calls me crazy for enjoying running. 😛

  • Hillary July 1, 2011, 7:56 am

    I love looking at race stickers! Is it weird that I find them totally motivating? Seeing lots of 13.1 stickers before my first half marathon really pushed me on—knowing that I could soon get my own!

  • Yolie @ Practising Wellness July 1, 2011, 7:58 am

    Nice work with the swim, that’s awesome! Haha, I love the first and last stickers the best – so fun! I used to have heaps of stickers on my old car, i miss them so. My fave said “yoga addict” 🙂 Your lunch looks absolutely delicious – what a cool way to prepare kale! Hope you have a great day today – postive, pleasurable and productive <3 xyx

  • Lee July 1, 2011, 7:58 am

    I like to play spot the t-shirts of races that I’ve done when I do a big local race. It’s fun!

  • Heather July 1, 2011, 8:05 am

    the amount of times I crave a certain food after seeing it on your blog is ridiculous. Thai for breakfast? seriously, self?

    • Caitlin July 1, 2011, 8:08 am

      Haha Thai for breakfast actually sounds pretty good to me!

  • Angie July 1, 2011, 8:07 am

    Great Swim!
    I second that request about cooking greens. I just can’t seem to cook them how I would like too.
    I like all the stickers, but the first one is fun!

  • Holly @ The Runny Egg July 1, 2011, 8:52 am

    I love seeing the stickers — when we were driving up north for my marathon 2 weekends ago we saw so many! It felt like we were all driving together 🙂

  • Bella July 1, 2011, 8:53 am

    I love to run, and bike! Although I am going to be picking up swimming in the winter for the swim team. Any tips I should use to train over the summer?

  • Faith @ lovelyascharged July 1, 2011, 10:11 am

    LMAO at the crazy people sticker – that’s priceless!!

  • Jenny July 1, 2011, 10:16 am

    I have my 13.1 sticker and one day I’ll have my 26.2.

    Love the 1st and 3rd tri stickers the best. Yummy dinner!

  • ashley @ ashley's adventures in alaska July 1, 2011, 11:46 am

    I just ordered my 13.1 sticker and can’t wait for it to come in! Before I was a runner I had no idea what the weird stickers with random numbers on them meant, but now I seek them out everywhere I go!

  • Crystal July 1, 2011, 12:55 pm

    omigosh that Thai takeout looks too good for words. I think I may have to order some veggie spring rolls and pad pak with tofu for dinner tonight…om nom nom

  • Sara @ OurDogBuffy July 1, 2011, 2:17 pm

    I vote for the “all you have to do is tri” sticker.

  • Shannon @ Mon Amour July 1, 2011, 6:50 pm

    As soon as I complete my half marathon in the fall I want to get a 13.1 sticker

  • Laura @ Cookies vs. Carrots July 1, 2011, 10:00 pm

    Love the tri stickers! It seems like race stickers are a special badge of honor. You should definitely get one! I think my favorite is the all you have to do is tri!

  • Katherina @ Zephyr Runs July 2, 2011, 9:30 am

    I NEED to try millet… that dish looks so appetizing. Also I vote first sticker.

  • kristenq July 2, 2011, 1:50 pm

    I love the first one too!
    And 160.4!!! (I would say thats crazy, but thats just me haha)

  • Emily July 2, 2011, 4:57 pm

    That looks like the tofu from Thai Thai. I had that while I was in NC a few days ago.

    Thanks for the recommendation on twitter, by the way.
