see what i mean? then, somehow my mind immediately thought of a cartoon character that the love of my life (aka: my domestique) says reminds him of me. do you know Mandy from the cartoon network? you know you do! perhaps this picture will help jar your memory:
does your bike have a name? if so, please share. curious minds want to know.
now for a few miscellaneous things:
~ this is my 100th post! i can't believe it. this blog thing has been so much fun. a big thanks to those who read it and follow along, leave comments, and sometimes leaving very sage wisdom.
~ the next time fat cyclist does the 100 miles to nowhere, someone let me know. i'm so in! and i plan on vlogging (yes, that's a word for a video blog) about it while i'm pedaling.
~ a word of warning. if you are an owner of a giro advantage 2 aero helmet, handle with caution. a friend of mine ripped the sides of his trying to take it off quickly during a triathlon. upon inspecting my own giro aero helmet, i can see how easily this could happen. the sides that cover your ears are VERY flimsy. i'll take an extra few seconds, to first, not rip my ears off this weekend when i pull it off and second, not to rip the sides off.
~ guess how many panic attacks i've had leading up to this weekend's race? none! thank you very much. this was not the case 12 years ago prior to St. Anthony's. i had multiple panic attacks on a daily basis for about 2 weeks leading up to that race. i suppose that's normal when you aren't a natural swimmer, you are scared to death of open water and haven't put much effort into the swimming portion. not the case this time! bring it sucka's!
~ had a real good workout this morning. did a medium-hard effort brick this morning. trying to focus on keeping the distance down a bit while upping the intensity. isn't that what tapering is all about?
much love and peace out!
