I'll be brief today as we just hammered out a 66 miler (Chilly Hilly X2 for you locals) and I need to eat, watch my Netflix doc on Steely Dan and get my tired booty to bed early in order to make the wake up call for tomorrow's 90 min spin. This is what happens when I try to be brief, sentences seem to run on a bit......
Randomly noted, however, before the curtain falls:
The new Seattle Transit (photo of the main entry) light rail from Pioneer Square to Sea-Tac (requires a last leg & free shuttle bus) is in keeping with European public transportation standards. Meaning, it works. $2.50 (!) gets you there in 30 minutes. And again for you locals, it's just an easy three block walk from the ferry terminal at 3rd & James.
Stephanie did the 66 today without breaking a sweat and is fully prepped for RSVP next week. I stand in full adulation mode of her prowess.
The Phase 126 studio project got a much needed shot in the arm yesterday as Brother Michael and Nephew Joe, crafted out the new arched portal. Pix on that AND Joe's ultra-cool soccer commercial coming soon.
We have some sweet deals/promos in the works for Kona this year. Allow me to be the first to let the kitty peek from the bag by leaking one clue: compression.
The UW Huskies will win 5 games this year. (Coming of an 0-12 campaign). RCVman, a UW football booster since 1977 (think Warren Moon, Blair Bush and Dave Browning) has seen it all since then, from Rose Bowls to the toilet bowl. Still I bark purple and gold. Go get 'em lads. All other team sports are a waste of time.
All for today.
Next weeks topics (outside of triathlon and training):
Why I am vegetarian,
Why I am Buddhist,
Why Goldman-Sachs sucks.
Why the sky is blue (on occasion), and,
Why I am single.
If you care to venture an early guess to any of the above, have at it and sleep well.
