There are men to write about. Or perhaps I should say a man, a male and a word that includes ‘man’.
1). NBC is airing the Kona Ironman World Championship race on December 13th at 2:30 EST. Check your local listing for the broadcast in your area. Here is a trailer if you need one to get fired up about watching Ironman
2). Last year I kept lamenting heavy training because it kept me from doing other things like hiking and kayaking. When Vineman was over I must admit I did not run off to the woods to hike. This past Sunday I finally went hiking. In fact, I went on a hike the Friday after Thanksgiving, too but that hike involved a bike ride first. This hike was just a hike that was taken because hiking is awesome! I went on both of these hikes with the Good Doctor.
The Good Doctor has much nicer camera than me. He did take a picture of the 2 of us but it has exposure problems so I don’t have it to share.
3). The reason the Good Doc and I have spent so much time together lately is because we are housemates. That’s right – he lives at my house. He lives downstairs and I live upstairs and it’s a great arrangement because he needed housing and I need money so he pays rent and when it’s time for an early morning ride and either of us fails to get up the other one can just bang on the door and get the sleepy one up. Perfect.
4). The other male in my life is this guy:
Mr. Dog and the Good Doctor came as a package deal and I couldn’t be happier. I was needing a dog but can’t afford one so once again we have a match made in heaven.
5). I bailed on my ride this morning because it was foggy and gross. Now it is getting sunny so I feel a need to go ride the mountain. If it is good enough for Macca then it’s good enough for me. If only I knew he was up there the other day. Oh well!
