Well, the big race is one week out now. My race kit arrived today. It’s pretty sweet although I am extremely self conscious in it and with good reason since it’s a little on the teensy side. But I doubt I’ll notice that on the day. Besides, I did not go into triathlon because I look good in spandex (i don’t) so maybe my results will speak louder than my appearance.

I had a solid bike ride today and get this…a RUN off the bike.  Not far, but faster than I have been running.  I don’t think the cortisone has taken full effect although I am no longer limping around like my knee is broken (which I was immediately after the injection).  I’m crossing my fingers and hoping a few more days will do the trick.

GB and I had a remarkably productive day around the house today.  We did domestic things like buying a sprinkler for our vegetable garden and a hanging plant for the back deck.  Spring has got us tightly in it’s grip.  Of course, as we predicted, the purchase of a sprinkler resulted in an onslaught of thunderstorms and heavy rain, but we’re okay with that.  Anyway, we’re settling in for a nice snuggly evening in our cozy little cabin-home.  No complaints here today.

    Naturally it would thunder. Of course. 🙂 Ah – and for the spandex. Well – you’re not the only one. If it’s tight, it’ll just force you to stand up a little straighter and suck in your tummy, er, “contract your abs”. Hey – works for me.

    There’s something special arriving today at your house… FYI.
