delaware rox the barrens


so there ya go. but before you begin formin' misconceived ideas about my studliness, consider that the du field stood at about 20 before we First State people showed. at packet pickup i found hen, looking totally pimp in our new kit and conversing with a similarly-pimped dude.

- hey – i greeted hen.
- 'sup.
- who's he? - i gestured at pimp no.2
- that's [spoonmaster foreigncups]. you met him before, remember? at e-town's? - forkmeister scandleflash didn't seem to mind being discussed in third-person.
- oh. hmm. he has nice legs.
- yes – hen agreed magnanimously. i pursed my lips and thought for a couple long seconds.
- you do too – i finally admitted.
- thank you.

there is no “i” in “team,” you see. and The Team ended up with 3 spots in the top 5 overall: flashmonster boodlesnatch and his carved, shaven legs won, hen took 3rd and i popped in at 5th.

this race was a world of difference from last week's. there was no suffering, i rocked solid on the bike, and running and i got back together after being on a break for a week and a half. i held back on the runs, though, because the hamstring is querulous and i'm not challenging it before i see sir rudy tomorrow. expect bruiseporn, friends.

the soundtrack? the doobie brothers' "black water" and kenny rogers' “she believes in me.” i don't know where this shit comes from, but there have got to be corporeal synapses and once i find them i'm gonna open my skull and carve them out with a melon scooper. replace 'em with a GPS unit so i don't end up in lost in south jersey ever again.

Well done! I knew you'd blow that old school shit clean out of the filthy water. But seriously, well done! I'm clapping-well I'm typing, but you know what I mean.

Please tell me that the Kenny Rogers soundtrack wasn't accompanied by a mental pic of Carrot Top lip-synching (sorry FMC)

thanks, but honestly? -there wasn't much of a challenge. i haven't seen official results yet, but the 2nd place woman said she finished 30min after me.

no CT, kath -- though i dare say i wouldn't have protested a cameo appearance. staring at your front wheel gets really old after an hour. it's old after 5min. i don't know how people can ride 112 miles in an Ironman w/o going completely nutters.
