Another candle.

So today I officially enter the "upper 40's". Can't even call it mid-40's any more.

This weekend was a little different. Didn't do a single run, ride, or swim... Well, I did a ride, but on my motorcycle. Doesn't really count.

Saturday morning, we timed an open water swim. One- and two-mile races, and let me tell you, the lead 2-mile swimmer was FAST. Looked like he had a motor. Just incredible. And it rained the whole morning. Made for a not-so-nice time on the shore with the timing equipment.

That afternoon, I met up with some other local motorcycle riders for a "Maintenance Meet-Up". At first, with the way the morning went, I wasn't so sure I would go. But I'm glad I did. Full brake bleed, new pads, and stainless steel lines on the front. I was glad to have knowledgeable help doing this for the first time. Thanks to Travis and the gang for all the help!

And yesterday, we went for some Lazer Tag. Which is an amazingly deceptive workout. I didn't really feel the effort, but I was drenched in sweat at the end of the second 15-minute game. It was a lot of fun.

Today, back to work. Do I feel a year older? Not really. Of course really I'm only a day older than yesterday. Not quite to the next age group, and my run is still getting faster. Look out.
