I’ve never done Three thing Thursday before although many of you do but it seems like just the think I need right now to get a quick post done.
1. This weekend is the Denver Century! I’m pretty
nervous excited! Mostly because I will be riding with Kathleen and Jill and a couple of others so should be a good time if I can keep up! I hope that the fact that the longest ride I’ve had is 67 miles is not a problem. :) It will be interesting to see just what it’s like riding with all of these riders, especially when we get to the portion that takes place on the bike paths. In addition to all the people doing the DC you will have all the people who are just out enjoying the day that is supposed to be beautiful 80 degrees.
2. Let’s talk socks and tri shorts. The socks I usually wear for biking and running work just fine, I’ve never had any issues with blisters or any other kind of problems. What I do have a problem with is getting them on my feet in transition. They are kind of tight and end up all twisted and are just generally a pain in the butt to get on wet feet in a hurry. So the question is this, do you have a brand/type you like? Do you go without? For the bike and the run? If you go without on the bike do you have tri shoes or road bike? Next up are the shorts. I noticed in my tri last weekend that my tri shorts were actually a little baggy. I was thinking that I might need to invest in some better ones for the HIM anyway, so tell me what kind you like?
3. Last but not least I wanted to say thanks to everyone for all the kind comments on my last (and really all of) post. It means a lot to me that you take the time to read about what I’m doing and cheer me on as well as answer my silly questions. I’m amazed by how great the blogging community is and it’s been so much fun to meet people that I otherwise never would have met. And it’s been fantastic to actually become friends with some of you! I also want to say that I read most of your posts (occasionally I get to busy and skip some) but with this new comment issue it’s made commenting a problem. While I’ve “fixed” it on my home computer by changing to Google Chrome. I don’t want to change my work computer and I often read blogs on my lunch hour, thus no comments unless I have time to make it back to blogs in the evening. So thanks again for spending of your time with me!
