I get by with a little help from my friends..

Yesterday I eeeked out a 35 mile recovery bike ride with the help of Pirate, who pulled me against the wind the first half of the ride. Now that is a true tri-friend!! I almost have her signed up for Polar Bear Triathlon in Dcember to get back on the horse, so they say, or the carbon, as we said. Any-who-I wasn't at my tip-top shape yesterday but felt better than I thought I would. It was great to see all the Outlaws and some Outlaw wanna-be's. Hartley's foot seems to be on the mend as he kept up with S. Baboo, which I thought was good, even on a recovery day ride.

The rest of the day did nothing (I am in the off season you know-lots of rest)..:) I did decide to attend a few club gatherings in the next month to try and pick one or two to help develop my intellectual, creative side. One is a monthly book club, one a scrapboooking club and the other a philosophy club meeting..Now that last one-I may be in over my head but I would like to hear other people's opinions about life and figured this was a good place to start. I am up for the adventure out of my little world to try some new things to broaden my horizons. This is good for the "Off-season" where I am suppose to be less structured in training-more "fun". Also good for the soul to try to meet new people, although I know triathlon peeps are the best-maybe I can convert a few :))

Yes, I have found triathlon and blogger peeps to be the best! Have fun in your "off season" broadening your horizons. I'm not so sure at this age that I really care that much about other people's philosophy on life, but who knows what you might learn!

well, if you packed my bike and put me in the car, I'm sure I could be talked into doing Polar Bear.

It might take an intervention.

Saturday was fun - we should do it again!

WHAT? What do you mean you have hobbies other than Tri? Oh, I can't believe it. Well I guess it's ok as long as your there to convert them. LOL. Glad to hear your enjoying your off season. I look foreward to seeing you guys at Polar Bear!
