My New Child

First off congrats to Tom. He set a new PB at the Switzerland 70.3 the other weekend, almost cracking 5 hr. He also negative split the run while doing most of his running as water running. His NP/AP was 212/194. Congrats to Cory as well who finished 8th in his age group at the Boise 70.3. He moved up six spots in his age group with a negative split run. NP/AP 215/208.

I’m pretty excited. I harvested my first crop this morning. Potatoes. It’s pretty late to be harvesting a winter crop here in southern AZ. Plant late, have an unusually cool and wet spring then reap what you sow. I’m small potatoes.

Now I need to figure out what summer plants I can grow. There are four empty planters on the back porch and I’ve got two more composting.

My new kid arrived this week. Brought it home and now I have no idea what to do. I think every new parent is like that. Lucky for me, my kid comes with four instruction manuals and an informative cd. Not that I’d read or watch those. Like every proud parent, I’m posting pics of my extremely good looking kid. Takes after his Dad if I do say so myself, good looking, not the bike part. Pretty soon though, I’m going to flog my new one, like every good parent should.

  1. purdy! I see its still a virgin since the pedals have been used 😉

  2. Damn! I actually got all excited thinking you acquired a new living beast, like dog, cat, sqirrel, etc. :-/

  3. I still think you are a big sissy for not taking your new kid up to do Barn Burner with me. I need you there to tell me I cracked and should stop riding.

    • And let me know if you figure out the trick for getting those pedal platform doohickies off. I was about to get the chainsaw out trying to get those off.
