I AM a TriAthlete

I ditched the bike this morning for a visit to an organic veggie garden with The Dude. I wanted to come by to see this place because The Dude had told me how wonderful it was and how amazing it was to be able to pick your own veggies. The Dude is on a quest of healthy eating and cooking. As payment of our work, we were giving permission to pick veggies from the garden and fill up to two bags. Back to the garden I cut off small quantities of veggies and herbs, because I’m not a cook, and am not into cooking, so I was afraid they would all go to waste in my fridge. I had to call The Dude, and as he approached me I placed my fingers next to his nose, but he didn’t seem very amused. I’m seriously thinking of making some kind of home fragrance or oil using rosemary and lavender not necessarily mixed together. My only doubt with the rosemary is that I might end up smelling like a salad, or some main entry. I might’ve ditched the bike this morning, but this was, as stated by The Dude, like strength training. Thank you Dude for making me a part of your passions! Thank you Brent for sharing this piece of heaven with us!

Triathlon Supporting & Spectating is a Workout

She heard me but was busy with the volunteers helping her out of her wetsuit. Once I saw her in transition, I relaxed a bit, then walked over to the ‘bike out’ area. I had a kinda long drive to get out of the lake area and get back to the Expo. Nonetheless saw many faces I recognized, called out names, an team names for encouragement and cheering. She made the so-so hand signal, but I figure I’ll catch her out on the course after completing her first loop to be company for her and provide support. It takes me a few to figure out the best way to get to Run-Out to wait for her. I am anxious now and let the phone charge to 25%. I get out the car, and head over to the run course. I went out to the run course and didn’t see my friend, I was wondering if I missed her, so I started walking out, slowly. One guy was puking his guts out, other athletes were laid out on cots with ice on their heads, or things, or calves. Once back at the hotel safe, I had to hit the road. I am in this new job, and calling out is a penalty against you that hangs on for a whole year, and you are only allowed so many.

How to date a triathlete/marathon runner/endurance junkie.

Endurance junkies are some of the most quality people around. For many of us, training makes us better people every day. Please, please, please don’t make us stay out late with you. We WILL spend more time swimming, biking, and running, than with you. The bike is just a vehicle for personal growth and change. If you HAVE to give us a gift, give us a bike! Okay, maybe not a bike, but something we can use to make ourselves more comfortable, efficient, and/or entertained while slogging it out there. We like our friends to be people who understand the value of setting personal goals and doggedly going after them, with perhaps seeming disregard for other aspects of life. The thing about triathletes and endurance athletes is that many of us have rediscovered the power of positive motivation, encouragement, and coaching in our adult lives. The paradigm of pushing through personal boundaries to shatter past records and achieve new, previously unattainable goals is something many of us move away from after we graduate from high school sports teams. Perhaps most people don’t get enough of this on a regular basis.

Sore Legs & Scrambled Eggs

At the end of April, we realized that our Peru dreams might actually become a reality – we had reached just over $3,000, almost enough to pay for our flights ????. Let the planning begin – once we got the okay to take 2 weeks off at work, we bought our flights and started planning. We’re about ready to go! We will be spending 15 days in Peru starting late next week. Day 4: Begin Machu Picchu hike – all day mountain biking. Day 7: Hike day 4 – arrive at Machu Picchu for sunrise and explore the ruins. Day 9: Boat trip on Lake Titicaca, spend the night with a local family on the floating island of Amantani. Day 11: Bus to Arequipa, the 2nd largest city in Peru. Day 13: Hike the Colca Canyon, relax in local hot springs. Day 16: Back to the USA. Our trip sounds like it will be both incredibly amazingly awesome as well as exhausting. I’m pretty confident that I would be able to complete the triathlon I was planning on doing without a problem. I’ve been following a tri training plan since the beginning of April, so it’s nice to have the freedom to do what makes me happy on any given day.
