Saturday, September 21, 2013 numbers

As I was on my ride today there were a lot of numbers in my head so I decided to write them all down just to clear my head, if nothing else! 

0: Times we got lost (for those that know me, this is a huge accomplishment as of late)
1: Time Tracy almost got crushed by a car
1: Time Tracy almost got attacked by a monster bug
1: Time we saw someone holding a bike helmet on their handlebars but NOT wearing it (her blonde locks did look beautiful in a Farrah Fawcett kind of way)
2: Stories about bodily functions
3: Live animals that crossed in front of me (8-point buck, snake, and, of course, a squirrel)
3.5: Crazy hard-core triathlete chicks on a hilly SUFFERFEST ride (see below for 0.5)
4: Roads with "town" or "ville" in their name
5+: Times Tracy asked people to please wear helmets on the trail.
10.4: Percent grade of biggest hill
18: Miles Renee got to ride with us (the 0.5 of a chick above)
25: Minutes late starting our ride
30: Dollars I had to pay my son for babysitting
32: Ounces of purchased drinks along the way (Gatorade & Coke)
42: Tracy's highest MPH speed for the day (you probably don't want to know the lowest! Maybe 2! LOL)
73: Miles rode
700: Roadkill (okay, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration...or not) 
4653: Feet of elevation

But, the best part of my day was doing this.....

Sufferfest September is in the books!

Do you get excited when you receive a REAL letter in the mail? I sure do. But, this is better than that.

Do you get excited when someone in the line in front of you at Starbucks buys your coffee for you? Oh yeah, that's great...but this is better than that.

What if someone says they'll handle the check at a restaurant and you can eat anything you want. Lobster and Steak for dinner, right? Pretty awesome, right? Oh yeah, but this is even better than that.

So, what in the world could I possibly be talking about?

2014 Race Calendar

It seems far too early to already be deciding which races I'm going to attend in 2014. But, 2014 is going to be another big year for me so I've got to get it all laid out now! Of course, things are apt to change (as they always do) before the next season arrives but this is what I've got so far:

May 18: Rev3 Knoxville - Probably Olympic distance (I have to prove myself here!)
June 15: Rev3 Williamsburg - Probably 70.3 distance (I'm not the only one that has things to prove here!)
July 7: General Smallwood Sprint (please don't let it be 112 degree "feels like" temperature again!)
August 17: Luray Sprint (hoping for no cramps!)
Sept: Rev3 Cedar Point 140.6 (Going for time this year!)

What does YOUR calendar look like for next year? Share some of your favorite races with me!
