Busy week so I am just posting some pics instead of a thoughful post. Life. Work. Last big build before my FIRST ( EEKS) Half IM in 2 weeks has left me a bit brain dead. Oh and Rafa just lost in the French so I have to devote some time to my man the FED now that the man who has beaten him 4x in the last 4 years is out...um..FED step up!! GO! Ok back to this post...
This is how we travel. Best rack out there, Thule. Get one.
Best parents in the world. 80 something and still going strong.
Best Burritos in MN. If you are ever doing Grandma's or have the guts to do the Burrito Union 10 hour Tri ( yes you can do it as a team...mix and match sports or whatever you want) you will have to try their stuff. SO GOOD. The Fat Capitalist is one of the better ones and they name the others after Lenin, Stalin, etc...super cheap too! Oh and beer too!
Rich posing...he looks pale and hungry. We just finished a ride. Get him some food.
Ok back to life. He has his color back now. And Cherry coke so he can drive us home to the cities from Duluth.
This is just a funny name for a pub. Or maybe I just thought it was.
Fun times with sister Elizabeth..
My super nephews, and Joe's pet Frog that i think he suffocated by mistake. Isnt it funny how little boys just want to hold onto rodents, snakes, frogs, whatever it is? I mean seriously. Joe wouldnt put it down. Then he couldnt figure out why it stopped moving. Um...sorry.
My sister Heide. Living the life in Houston..send some heat ok? She will be home with Chippy for my mom's 80th and for the big party ( wedding!) in November.
The River in front of our cabin that runs into Lake Superior. I think reverse osmosis was pulling that water up from the lake bc it was about 1 degree warmer than the lake. Brr.
Ruby had her first trip up North. She didnt like the car ride in a cage but she sure had fun running around and playing. I need to get some more pics of her. Her HOT red coat is quite gorgeous in the spring sun.
And in 2 weeks this is what I will be doing. I get a pit in my stomach thinking about it, but really..if i can have a sunny day like this that would be great. More importantly I am so lucky to get to race and since I have done my homework and it is my first Half I get to set a PR!!!
My only fear really is that i will have a mechanical..so my bike and wheels will have an extended check next weekend, rest assured...But this deserves its own post..like...if i ride a tubular disk I am screwed if i flat so what do i need to do to be sure i wont flat? ( other than to NOT ride thru glass pre-race!) duh!
Happy week to you all and enjoy spring!!!
