Big Weekend

Fri-Monday long weekend stats

Bike: 102 miles
Run: 11.42 miles
Swim: 3200 meters

Lessons learned: Don't do a 70 mile ride 24 hours after a kick-heavy master's practice (>1000 meters of kick sets) and 12 hours after your long run

Just because a jacket is labeled as "waterproof" doesn't mean it will keep you dry for a 70 mile ride in the rain of a tropical storm.

Never underestimate the power of friends. They can make a 70 mile ride in 55 degree pouring rain fun!

Having your mom in town is very therapeutic.

Never underestimate the power of laughter. It heals all wounds

You know that your seats are close to the band when the director hands you ear plugs

Little Miss Sunshine is the best movie of the year. You have to see it. If you can find a theater that serves wine, I would highly recommend it.

I love making and eating chili in the fall

Doing hill repeats on your tri-bike is a challenge. But doing it by yourself and pushing through 4000 feet of elevation is priceless.

I need to get my butt on the bike more often

My hunger is insatiable

You are doing awesome. I could recommend a waterproof jacket if you wish. It's been field tested by me.

I think we multisport atheletes do eat a lot. And we need to. If you come to the Fall club picnic you'll have to bring some of your chili.

On the latter, M&Ms are my best friends.
