Alright, now for this week's happenings. First, we went to two different kid's triathlons. This picture is from the Moxy Tri in Austin.
Kids triathlon teams are incredible. They get to learn three different sports and never suffer the burnout or injuries of a single sport. If you have one in your area, I highly recommend getting your kid to try it out.
We took Kona to the second race in College Station. He was a huge hit.
We weren't planning on it, but he turned into some kind of therapy dog. Kids just wanted to pet him and talk to him, soothing their nerves. Kona being there made quite a few kids feel more relaxed.
You get a lot of super high-end bikes in a kid's race that makes you wonder if Donald Trump's grandkids are there, but you also get a lot of bikes that just make you smile. This one was a real jewel.
That's seriously one of the coolest bikes I've ever seen. "Miss Matched" has the opposite color on every single matching part. Love it!
It's been raining quite a bit with Tropical Storm Bill here in Texas, so I was only mildly surprised when I found a crawfish taking a jog across a parking lot.
(Raise your claw if you want more Skynyrd, man!)
A coworker and I threw it in a nearby creek. Maybe it can live out it's duathlon dreams more safely there.
Speaking of water, the Xterra board I ordered arrived! It came in this big box.
(What's in the box? Bones? Say it's bones. It's bones, isn't it?)
I haven't taken it out yet, but I do love having a big paddle leaning against the wall next to my bikes!
And speaking of bikes, my new riding buddy and I have been out tearing up the countryside.
We are literally the exact same speed, so it's a real blast having a new friend to chat with for three hours nonstop.
Inspired by Jamie Patrick's attempt at the longest open water swim, I posted yet another picture of my local lap pool.
It's really funny how my pool pics drive people nuts with envy on Instagram. Seriously gang, it's not that nice! It's pretty average, really. And it has plenty of hair and bandaids in it to prove it. Blech! Maybe pool pics always look awesome when it's somebody else's pool?
Ok, that's enough for now. Off to record another show!
