My Wife: "What are you doing? It's Halloween and I asked you to hand out candy." Me: "Oh this, this is all my costume. It's not for real. I'm dressed up as a narcissistic, anti-social, self centered triathlete who shuns the neighborhood children in order to get one last October workout in at the proper watts/kg (because the training plan says so), while simultaneously logging in to the Triathlon Roost with 3 fake IDs on multiple devices in order to Like and Dark Mark myself into winning the coveted Poster of the Month award over the always formidable @ItsShug ...." My Wife: "That's bull, I know you much better than that." My Wife: (turns and leans in close to my laptop as she walks away) "What are you wearing Jake from ENVE?" *
To honour my new favourite holiday, Martini Saturday, I am kicking off my gravel bike build. I'll post something soon. This won't be Dark Mark worthy artistry, but I'll try to make it special. So far, I've only installed one, most important item, to the frame. Might as well show that as a preview.
@KenElPescadoPelado , I'm not hip enough to keep up with all that Vonberging jargon...... But I do know exactly how to act with my 12 and 13 year old boys when they start getting too cool to be around Mom and Dad in public!
Proud and special day for me today. Mixed it up with the real swimmers. My 12 year old son took 5th of 43 in the Epic Swim to the Moon Half Mile, AG 1st. He's hooked!!!!! He watched the 5k and 10k folks, and said, "Dad, Let's race the 5k next year". I did the 1.2 mile and took 35th of 133. AG 2nd.
Yesterday on my business travel, I got a bit put off that I would have to pay 35 bucks to swim at my hotel, and even nearby pools, with crappy hours. I skipped my workout. After my meeting, I decided to walk 300 yards from my hotel, and see a sight that everyone in the world should be so fortunate to witness. My skipped workout faded into the perspective it deserved. I slept less than 700 meters from the point in space where our world changed forever. Was going to post in Friday Boozing, cause it caused this teetotaler to have 3 beers at dinner, but that didn't seem right. I like to keep politics out of what I do and say, and I think this is apolitical: In the current climate, we can all do our part by remembering the past and knowing that a "revisit" is not a defensible choice using any logic. Let's all contribute in our small ways to ensure this never happens again. Happy and safe training to all, we are fortunate.
