Family & Friends Friday - Beyotch-in-Law

I say that lovingly about my sister-in-law, Becky. Just don't piss her off or else she will get beyotchy all up in your butt.

Aimee and her sister as like water and oil, respectively; and I'm not talking about water from a mud puddle and extra virgin olive oil. I'm talking black crude oil (Becky) and Aquafina bottled water (Aimee), at least that's how it was when I first met them 15 years ago. Both very precious but also very different.

Becky is 5 years younger than Aimee and followed quite a different path than her older sister.

Vocational school to get her beauticians license and cut hair for 5 years.
Attended Kent State for fashion merchandising while working.
Currently working as a buyer for DOTS clothing stores.

It's been weird watching her change during that time. I still can't believe the words coming out of her mouth when she starts talking cost, margins, inventory, fashion trends, and accounting. But she is very good at her job and works hard. She also plays as hard as she works.

These sisters do have some simularities.
They both like to ride their bikes: Aimee has a nice Bianchi road bike and Becky has a big Honda 750.
You don't want to piss them off: Even hell get's scared.
They love their pets; Sig, Snickers, and Ruby
They both have great husbands.

Becky is one of our biggest supporters for our athletics. Becky and her husband drove down to "watch" us compete in our first Half-Ironman distance event in 2004. They decorated our hotel room door with balloons and streamers. Becky will be at IM USA with an unlimited amount of energy to share with all of the competitors.

Becky makes our lives interesting and I wouldn't want her any other way. Variety is the spice of life and Becky is hot cheyenne pepper. The new video is dedicated to this Metallica fan and the song is for all of us triathletes who follow our own path.

Game On for the weekend.
