Other news

It appears the grand opening of the Fuddis scheduled for Monday, April 10th. Thanks Barry for the tip! I can’t wait to go there and eat lots of food!!!

This is a good ideaLike there is any questions what is going to happen, let’s increase racial tension…and make fun of a sport that’s already made fun of alot…any coincidence that Nascar won’t be on NBC after this year? I love how cyclists make fun of Nascar, when a criterium is pretty much the exact same thing without the fans. Cyclists can be pretty quick to judge lots of things and then wonder why no one takes cycling seriously. Anyways, Date Line has always been a farce, now it is downright stoopid… I hate that show and I hate when people overreact when watching the show. I am in a minority as a cycling and Nascar fan…I love it! On my last bright yellow bike I would’ve killed for a fun DeWalt/Matt Kenseth graphic kit for it. The roads would’ve probably been safer for me too! Or maybe it would be a bad idea when someone in a big chevy with a #8 sticker in back bumps me out of the way…rubbin’s racin’! Hey, at least it isn’t a Jeff Gordon sticker…

I’ve done some pretty amped up training the last couple of weeks, getting in over 100 cycling miles in the last two days as my yearly total (basically March/April) is approaching 700. Add that to my 500 running miles since October and I’ve got a great aerobic base and both my running and cycling legs are coming. The weight is down as well, any notion I had of racing clydes is pretty much out the door (although with the new Fudd, it can be reversed.) I might crit it up on Sunday even. Yesterday I was riding down Fitchrona and a cop was running radar. He even gunned me out of sheer curiosity I am guessing (31 in a 40 zone.) No other cycling stories except we rode hard enough on Tuesday to make some guy puke…awesome!

Seattle trip is coming soon (not soon enough) so that’ll be nice. Bike is all arranged and should be ready to go! Mark’s Movie Review: Failure to Launch…good show, a decent romantic comedy, too much ex-Steeler QB ass, I am going to go ahead and give it my recommendation.

  • Damn, dude - I'm glad we're only doing a couple of the same races - I like like not being embarrassed.

    I took my bike out for 25 yesterday, and I'm thinking about a long, slow day at Kettle this Saturday. Missy had a long run scheduled, so she may tag along to run on some new roads. The whole thing hangs on me finishing the cabling and adjusting the derailleurs on my bike though!

  • Hey - Happy Fuddrucker's Day! Can I assume you're making a trip downtown after work?
