It has been a while since I have blogged anything in earnest. This time of year is very tight on free time with high school cross country season as well as a lot of end of season racing for my adult kids. I am also in the process of sculpting myself into a pretty fit triathlete for a handful of weeks in prep for Beach 2 Battleship half-Iron on October 26. Anyway, most of what I do is fun but the time adds up sometimes.
First things first: I meant to make this post a month ago. Junior is at that stage of toddler-dom where the words are about to explode. He is 21.5 months old as of today. Here is a fairly comprehensive list of the words we have heard him say.
poo (Winnie the)
owe (owl of Winnie the)
teef (as in my teef needs to be cleaned)
too-too or tat-too or thak-too (thank you)
cheese (food or pictures)
a few others not springing to mind right now.
new as of this week or so
cheers (we clink glasses at dinner)
In the triathlon world, things have been going well. I did the FS Series aquabike on Sep 15 and felt good with a 21 swim and 2:30 bike on a tough course. The swim was a little short.
I have been getting out 2x a week during the week for longer sessions on the bike in order to reserve the weekends primarily for family fun times. Up to 75 miles on the long ride and planning to do a 125 or so next weekend with some buds by riding to the beach from here.
This past weekend we met up with our crew in Wrightsville Beach for the Wilmington YMCA sprint. I like this race and enjoy hanging on the beach for a couple of days. I raced well and was 10th overall. I would post pics but this stupid website won't let me copy the sample pictures of how awesome and fit I look at the moment. I would also write more details about the race but am already tired of typing.
So in the words of Junior Awesome, "bye bye!"
