What is this shit? I didn't come here for this. @Ben Hobbs and @Aaron Webstey --both of you guys are assholes. The man had me down and I was out of shape. I didn't know if I would ever get "it" back. But joining this team proved to me that not everyone in triathlon was a douche bag: that triathlon did not equal Slowtwitch. Where will an introvert in the midwest like myself go if the team dies? Slowtwitch? Beginnertriathlete? Team MaccaX? This team isn't some play thing for your oversized egos and undersized peckers. @Ben Hobbs you needed @Aaron Webstey while you were off on your "freedom quest." @Aaron Webstey you begged to be a part of this, you've built our electronic water cooler, and for a time you were running the show. Jesus, even @TheActualPaulo "graces us with his presence.". This team was the best thing that ever happened to me in triathlon. It brought back the magic for me, I'm back in shape, and I just signed up for my first ironman. Now, goddammnit, I'm going to be practicing alot of exercising this year, and even if my wife leaves me for a man with an adequate libido, I expect everyone of yous sonsofbitches to be here in the Friday Night Boozing Thread with me. This is OUR time!
@BHobbs Thanks. I don't speak for everyone, but I will anyway. We like having you around. You do a ton of work to make this happen. Most of us have been in-and-out (and in again) of the sport of triathlon. And we aren't even hosting a podcast. All of us burn out, or life gets in the way, but ultimately we come back. This group makes it fun and makes us want to come back when we're fried from real life. We are glad that this time it's you coming back.
We adopted this cat about.... 3 hours ago. It's our first pet. It was a neighbor's cat that kept coming around to our place presumably because my wife fed it (my) bacon. Anyway, the neighbors offered her to us. I was trying to do some work in the office / pain cave and she has already made herself comfortable on me. I'm trying to act annoyed in this picture for wife.
