Where does the time go. It is Friday already. I have the day off today which was nice so I got a chance to stop by some friends jobs and bother them a little. Now me and the girls (2 daughters, and 2 female dogs) are waiting for Liam to come home from school (1/2 day for him). Then later this afternoon is my girls pre-school graduation. I can't believe they will be starting kindergarten next year. Talk about where did the time go!

Yesterday I got in a bike ride and did 12.88 miles in 50:20 minutes for a pace of 3:54. And I went all out on mile 3 to see how fast I could go and got 3:10 for that mile (did I mention I love this Garmin?).

I did register for the DU tomorrow and really look forward to it. I am nervous but I still get nervous doing 5K races so that is normal. I think I will be less nervous when I eventually learn more about biking and bike maintenance for that matter. If I get a flat I am screwed, so yes I really need to find a store that offers a clinic.

Speaking of clinics - I did not get to the Tri 101 meeting that Team Triumph had the other night. Long story but I hope to never have all 3 kids needing a vaccination on the same Dr. visit. That was a nightmare and did not make for a fun evening.

You are getting the biking thing down. I still get nerves every time I do any event. I think it honestly makes me go out a little too fast sometimes. One of my goals is to try to control that burst of adrenaline instead of letting it control me. Good Luck. (I took a couple hours off today too- Feels nice!!)

small matter - you can put your Garmin in "bike" mode, and then report your bike info in MPH, not pace per mile. Way to work and don't worry about the DU = remember, racing is FUN!!!!!

Dan, what a nice surprise to see you on my blog. Liam has grown so much since the last time I saw him. And look at you! I am very very proud of what you have accomplished. Take care and may be we'll get to see each other one of these days.
