I'm gonna have to get out on the lawn tomorrow to pull some weeds. Probably have to take another run at the beds with the hoop hoe too.

All of my docs pretty much don't really seem to care. Even my gastroenterologist just shrugs it off like it is what it is; deal with it.

Maybe GI Joe could help.

It's been Friday all day. And all of a sudden tomorrow is Sunday. Ride day. We watched 'Don't Look Up' this evening, on Netflix. Great ending. Funny movie.

seedsbelize2 02-26-22 09:43 PM

One more trip for me this Spring. Tue bright and early I head to Tulum on the bus. Transfer to a launch and end the day in Punta Allen. I was there once before, having ridden MTBs with a friend. Took us eight hours, from Tulum. I hear tell it takes five hours by jeep. Can't really be called a road. I will meet up with possibly my best friend, and meet her husband for the first time. Two nights and then back home.

Rapha is plain kit!

In Zwift, I still have my avatar wear the 2016 Tour of the Battenkill kit I got a code for when I signed up.

Iím a strong advocate of NOT getting married early, despite the fact that it apparently works for some people.


Met my wife when I was 20, been together for 14 years, but have only been married 8 come Sept.

The difference is, when she buys things itís usually 40-60 dollars max. When I need things is 500-8,000 dollars. Now that I think about it I need to get 8,000 to move up some.

Road race I am considering doing in May. There is a crazy looking climb near the end of the race. Crazy for me atleast, BigJohn will just yawn. I can see myself blowing up on that hill and not being able to finish.

My only concern, I wonít be able to ride the course before, so I wonít know if there are any road hazards ďpot holesĒ and such. Even if I could get out there a week or so before a lot of the route doesnít look bike friendly if I were to be alone.

She also regularly asks if Iím texting my secret boyfriend on bikeforums when Iím posting.

Yea, Iím not allowed on this site when I am home. My phone is prolly the only conflict between us. She think I am on it too much, I donít think I am on it anymore than she is on hers. The part she doesnít understand is how much I have to do for my job all the time.

No, it was the Queen route, which is only ~1200m

funny that you mention that. Mine has questioned, but never said no to a car purchase. But if I want to get a new weed eater or suit, sheíll micro-scrutinize that. I donít get it.

I'm in the same boat even after two cups. Until noon, when I miraculously wake up. I'm only a month out from cessation, and am hoping it gets better with time. Prozac for the whole body.

I may do long climbs but I am slow and could never race up them, even years ago. I'd like to see a profile of that route.

Gonna go meet big john for a (hopefully) easy Sunday morning ride. The California sun is up and looks to be another fine day.
