So a lot of people are talking about triathlon this weekend, mostly for the wrong reason, so will keep it brief. This was an easy week for me as next week I am starting the big push to get ready for Oceanside at the end of march. I am thinking that my rest weeks are a little too easy as I feel so out of wack durring them and I am going to bump them up a bit from here on out.
I did have one great ride this week; on saturday I rode to Monterey with some of my very favorite people to hang with. The pace was mellow and with such great company it was a great boost to my spirits and motivation. Amongst the group..."Super" Dave Reid a fellow slug swimmer and talented triathlete from whom I have gotten tons of valuable advice and guidance, Jeff Traugott (tall, dark, and handsom dead center) a very accomplished luthier and all around great guy, in the blue is John Caletti a hand crafter of some of the most beautiful bikes on the road, and Cory Caletti in the foreground who gave me a bunch of great nutritional ideas and some serious vegetarian goodies to boot!
Although I do love challenging myself and racing hard and all that jazz my absolute favorite part of being an athlete is being a part of such an awesome community of people. Sharing stories, joking around and enjoying the outdoors with friends like these is what really makes me the happiest.
