- My running has been sporadic to say the least, but at least I'm running. Three times per week is just fine for me considering I don't have a target race to train for. My new kicks are really nice and quite a bit lighter than the previous Saucony's I was wearing.
- Two weeks ago I took the plunge and signed up for the GrandFondo Bike Tour this July. I'm pretty excited about it especially for the fact that I don't have to train for it in craptastic cold spring weather like you have to do if you are cycling the Rideau Lakes Tour in June...bonus! Once I registered I took my bike to "the Toy Store" for its annual spring tune-up. I just called and they haven't even started to work on yet! I told them I'd be there after work to pick it up and it had better be ready. Nuff said, I think that two weeks is plenty of time to have to work on a bike!
- Mr. Davey Gie was inquiring about my tattoo.
Davey, it is one of my designs. Since I was born in the Year of the Snake and I am also a Gemini, it consists of two snakes. The numbers depict the Half Marathon (21.1k) and Full Marathon (42.2k) distances I have raced over the years. Hope this little explanation helps. I'm still undecided as to what I will create to commemorate the Half Ironman I did last year (distance of 113k or in the USA, known as 70.3).
Hope everyone has a great weekend. I'm off to remove the snow tires from the car and put on the brand new seasonal tires (If we get a snowstorm any time soon, it isn't my fault), and to pick up the "better be ready" tuned up bike. I want to get rolling this weekend!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
