Thanks to Pearl Izumi, I recently made a trip out to the San Diego Wind Tunnel. While there, we tested and made adjustments to both my bike and my race kit, taking into account aerodynamics, power, and comfort. It was such a cool experience!

Peanut Butter Kale

Last week, I "tweeted" about what is currently one of my favorite meals. Some were intrigued. Some were grossed out. The skepticism is understandable - the ingredients include kale, peanut butter, and garlic. As I suggested last week (and a few agreed), I may be demented, but it's worth a try.

You are at Hawaii Ironman. You are about to race Hawaii Ironman. Tomorrow you will be racing Hawaii Ironman! Breathe... As we dropped off the bikes the day before THE race, it hit me. And because I'm a bit of a spaz, I nearly had a breakdown right there! Tim put his arm around me, turned me toward the water, and said, "It's just another race."

Wedding & IMLP

Wow! What a week! Got married AND won Ironman! Can you say, "Honeymoon in Kona?!" Tim and I secretly planned our wedding for just over a year. Before Friday morning, the only people that knew were me, Tim, the Justice of the Peace, the lady that issued the marriage license, two guys getting fishing licenses at the same time, and Heather Fuhr

What an ordeal, glad you are on the mend and that it was not worse, but how frustrating that an inattentive rider in a pack would be the cause. I took one of those sleepers to/from Boston and it is unbelievably tiny and I was also not a fan of the "private loo"! Rest up and recover!
