Road ride with a bunch of STeve's roadie friends. One of them kind of looked out for me because I knew I would get dropped. But it went ok, I managed to hang on and even took a turn pulling. The new bike is a much better fit for me than my Pinarello

Best of luck to my friends racing at Chattanooga today.

So can we chat about Crossfit for a minute? What is the deal with people who get into CF and cut all the non-CF friends out of their life? Happened to me about 6 years ago, and actually it was the friend who got me into triathlon, introduced me to BT. She drank the CF KoolAid and suddenly "couldn't relate" to anyone not into her lifestyle. Now I have another friend who, from all outward appearances, is going down that same path. Meh, I guess if a friendship is based on a hobby, it makes sense that the friendship will end when the interest in the hobby wanes.

Steve and I went to a "couples" Pampered Chef party last night at the home of one of his roadie buddies. We actually had a pretty good time although I think the Pampered Chef lady is a little bit crazy. Had not been to a PC party in at least 15 years. Stuff is still pricey. We bought a few token items. I did buy the veggie spiralizer thingy that can turn onions, zucchini, carrots etc into noodles. IT's pretty cool, even if it's overpriced.

Heading out for some mtb this morning and we'll hit the Old Capitol Art Fair this afternoon.
