7 Random Things I Was Thinking About On My Bike Ride This Morning

1. The reason people say that you really discover yourself in long-distance triathlon has less to do with the effort it takes to compete and more with the incessantly boring amount of time you have to train with nothing better to think about than your stupid, silly behavior.

2. I've got to stop drinking this Iced Tea flavored Power Bar mix during morning rides. It's nauseating this early. Must stick with lemon lime. I have to remember that. Lemon lime, lemon lime, lemon lime.

3. Is that my friend Chris approaching? It is! Chris! Chris! Hi Chris!!! Chri...[woosh!!] Umm....ok. See ya later. Maybe I should ride by myself anyway.

4. I really need to learn how to relax my shoulders when I'm in the aero position. It's no wonder my neck hurts so much.

5. My place is piled high with cat hair and it sure is cramped with the three of us there, but I'm going to miss having Catherine and the little kitty around when they move back into their de-molded apartment.

6. I really need to grease this chain. I can't wait until Catherine is back in her place with her bike stand so she can clean my bike for me.

7. Is that Chris coming back?! Woohoo!! Chris! Chris! There you are! How the hell are you!?! How's the ride!? Where'd you go?!! Oh wait.... sorry... you look just like a friend of mine. Didn't mean to bother you.

LOL, read your email. You shouldn't ride so fast, I might actualy see you the next time!

The aforementioned Chris

Totally stupid question from a totally stupid reader: How exactly DO you know when it's time to grease your chain?

Totally stupid answer from a totally stupid writer: Beats the hell out of me. I just know that when I'm biking and it sounds like the Mojave Desert is grinding through my gears that it's probably time to get out the lube.
