Random Thing #1 – Training
Training has been going well this week, although there isn’t much eventful for me to talk about really. Well, I do have something pretty cool to mention which is going to help me tremendously in heading toward Ironman Lake Placid, but I am going to talk about that in a later post. Right now I am sitting at a car dealership waiting for my truck to get service on a recall and the computer keeps crashing on me. It is more fun than you would think.
Anyway, I did one stupid run in the middle of the day Tuesday when it was about 90 degrees or so and the air was so thick and heavy it was like breathing through a sponge (go ahead Jeff, call me a wuss!) It was a nice reminder to get up early to do my workouts.
If I ever get out of this place I am riding my bike for an hour today, I can’t wait.
Random Thing #3 – Bailey Pictures!
I love to walk to the Appalachian Trail (AT) Crossing in the evenings. This is where the AT hikers must get across the Kennebec River after hiking about 2000 miles. It is a short walk to the crossing, only about a mile to get there.

|Appalachian Trail and Kennebec River|
And….the last crash of the computer ate the picture of the crossing. Beautiful! Now that I am annoyed, let me mention a random thing about me that really seems to really bother people.
Random Thing #4 – Lobster and Olives
I do not like Lobster or Olives. This has caused me much social awkwardness.
People love waste their time trying to convince me that I MUST like lobster (“Because you are from Maine!! People from Maine eat lobster!”) HEY I have an idea, why don’t you just eat mine. See? Win win! My new line is that I am allergic. Which I am not, but that seems to make everyone more comfortable.
And regarding the olives…Why do people always ask me when I say no olives on my Italian sandwich (or anything) – “OH! No olives? Really? Hmmm…How about green ones?”
I told you, random stuff today.
