Pursuit of Awesome

Monday - August 25

i'd like to say hello.

it is just a beautiful day today as it was a beautiful weekend.  weather is just perfect.  if i could only get out of my warm and cozy bed and get on the bike, i might be able to have some confidence going into the oly tri in five weeks.

okay, so i was trying to hammer out 10 on the hotel treadmill on saturday.  i had a towel over the read out so that i didn't have to watch every 0.01 mile and i turned my watch off because the distances were not jivin'.  after about an hour or so, it just shut down!  NO!!!  i screamed and my brother-in-law walked into the fitness room laughing.  i got it started again but this time it only lasted about ten minutes.  i renounced the treadmill and did a little warm down on the exercise bike.  i do not like treadmills.

lounge against the machine!

i called george wyth and they said their water is a-okay!  so, looks like i'll be rockin' the oly next month.  i hope i don't get sick ;)

i have to hit the reset button today.  i am just not hacking it.  btw, thanks for the inspires kids.

fun fact: once, little noz (around 8 yrs, i think) visited grandpa and grandmas house and was upset when his sisters recieved gifts (from other people) and noz got the shaft.  so to cheer little noz up, grandpa give him a pistol....unloaded, of course.  i'll miss him.
