Back to the Grind

We arrived back from sunny Florida last night to be greeted by HOT Texas. Wow, it is hot here right now. Off the beach and back to work tomorrow.

Also, now the real work begins for Ironman Arizona. I think all year I have been looking at November saying, it is SO far away. Well, folks, the counter today is below 120 days. It's really time to get to work. The training is really getting ready to ramp up.

If anybody wants to ride or run sometime, just let me know.

See you at the finish line.

A little humor...

Saw this somewhere a while back. I still think it is funny and I hope you do too.

The Top 10 Ways to tell an energy bar from a dog turd...
1. Energy bars cost about $2. Dog turds are free.
2. Energy bars have shiny wrappers. Dog turds don't.
3. A fly will eat a dog turd. I've never seen a fly eat an energy bar.
4. Dog turds get slippery when wet.
5. Energy bars come in many delicious flavours. Dog turds only come in 1.
6. Energy bars hold their shape in a jersey pocket much better than dog turds.
7. Dog turds won't damage a lawn mower blade. The jury is still out on energy bars.
8. You won't find an energy bar sitting on the ground in the park.
9. Dog turds are made of naturally occurring substances.
10. Dog turds are biodegradable.

Hope you enjoyed....see you at the finish line.

Happy Birthday USA

As we celebrate this weekend with long bikes, long runs, long swims and the like. We really appreciate all the service of the fine folks in all the armed forces and remember especially all those currently serving away from their families. Thanks for your service and all you do.
