It’s Unanimous!

Well, I’m going to wear my new Rudy helmet on Sunday during the Winter BeGone Duathlon. Everyone who voted in my last post thought I should. Thanks for you input. But a SUPER THANKS to Joseph who let me know that the chin strap should NOT be on the outside of the ear-thingies like I was wearing it in the previous post. That would have made me a super poser! (Not to mention that I just said “ear thingies” which makes me a poser anyway...)

I’m excited for Sunday. It’s the first duathlon of the year, and we’re taking a small army down to compete in it. Pharmie and I will be doing the long course (3.1 mile run, 18 mile bike, 6.2 mile run). The most exciting part is that Borsch and Pharmie’s brother Matt will be coming with to do their FIRST duathlon! They’re trying out the short course (2 mile run, 12 mile bike, 2 mile run). AND there’s a chance that Pharmie’s sister Steph will do it too! Should be a fun day!

The one thing that could really ruin the day is the weather. The duathlon is called “Winter BeGone,” which is ironic because Sunday morning it’s supposed to be about 35-40 degrees, windy, and rainy. Gross. We’ll see how it goes. Check back Sunday night!

Wow, that weather sounds gross (I think you got it right). Hopefully your helmet of wonder will shield you from the elements.

Calling the event 'Winter BeGone' is tweaking the noses of the weather gods. At least they didn't name it the 'No One Every Gets Hurt Bad In This Duathon'.

Sounds like fun! I also like a product called Blister Free to keep running toes healthy.

I fall behind in my reading for about a week, and I feel like I missed out on all the good stuff....WAIT, this is STEVE's blog....there's always good stuff.

About the toe condom, does that come in a female version?

Hmm, I wonder if we can get a Du here in Texas called "Summer Stay Away" it was 87 here today.

Have fun on Sunday and let us know how the helmet did.
