Thank you

Dear Mother Nature,

It's been rainy and crappy the last few days. I try to not complain, but really yesterday was just unacceptable. I was awake for approximately 15 hours and it didn't once stop raining. I know that the plants and grass and flowers needed it, yada yada yada, but really? No break at all? How am I supposed to become an Ironman when I have to summon the energy to train inside?

But again, I try not to only complain so - I just want to thank you for being kind to me today. The rain stopped and Tom and I were able to get jump on our bikes. Although you were blowing straight in my face for the first 21 miles, as to say "complain some more girlfriend", I really appreciate you not relocating while we enjoyed a pizza and salad. I really like the wind... but mostly when it's at my back and that's where you stayed for the last 21 miles!

Because of your kind gesture today, I'll let yesterday slip. Just try not to let it happen again.

Yours truly,
Colleen

Great ride today Booberry patch. You got all of the King of the Mountain points! Pizza is quite the motivator!

I know how you feel about the rain ruining your training. Glad it stopped for you to get out and ride!

Pizza works wonders, doesn't it...even when it's at the end of a long day of training. Whatever works!

I think your next blog entry should be to thank Mother Nature for giving you the second coldest July on record...or else she's likely to be mad at you and will make August and September unbearable!!! ;-) Hope the pizza was worth the hard work!!!

Ummmm, are you up yet? Apparently Mother Nature didn't read her new blog posts this morning.

Let's kick her where it counts.

YAY for Pizza though!
