Think like a bumblebee, train like a racehorse

Well my slow growth bike fund is up to a whopping $51.74 thanks to the "Common Surface Savings and Loan" and an occasional deposit from "Coach Cushion Co Op". Uncle Sam helped a bit with a generous refund of my even more generous IRS contribution, so Frankenbike might be available on Ebay soon.

Just think, what would you pay to own a piece of Trimama?

I had a dream last night that it was registration day for IMFL. My registration was official at 10:06 a.m. CST. It took me 6 minutes to fill in all the details and my credit card number. But then it took me all day to post my entry and..ok, whatever, other peoples dreams are boring.

Except this dream.

This dream, IMFL is remarkable.

I took "The Triathlon Training Bible" to work last night. I began reading this book in January, when the dream was just a speck of a seed trying to learn to breathe in the pool. Sap, or sapling, I'm going to be fitted for a tri bike this afternoon. We're going "all in", which granted doesn't amount to much because I only have about 4 chips in my pile, but the bumblebee in me says 4 chips are enough. I might not have the best bike, or the smartest coach (although he might be the sexiest-especially in his biking tights), but I have a lot of equity in the endure and conquer, train and enjoy, Life Time Savings and Loan and I have a good God, a great hubby, a wonderful tribe and cool friends.

I think I've finally settled on a reason to pursue this trip up Everest that I can endorse, that I can celebrate,

but that will have to be chapter 2, life is calling....

Crash!!!! "Mom I sink I broke that ting"

Have a great weekend!
