9 Days Until Grandma's Marathon!

Nine very good reasons why bike shorts are black (click the links):

Reasons 1-5

Reasons 6-9


Some of those “reasons” are pretty impressive! In that last photo, they seem to be arguing about what time it is: 3 of them think it's 11:00, while 1 of them thinks it's about 1:30. Interesting...

In an actual workout update, I’ve seen Dr. Folske for 2 more ART sessions on my heel. He’s been doing his thing to me, and it’s helping. He had me go for a quick 4 miler the other day, and it went well for how fast I was going (4 miles in 23:46 - that’s 5:57/mile, yo!). My speed is still there, but will I do OK with long runs that were cut short due to my achilles? Tune-in 9 days from now to find out...

Wow. Reasons 6-9 were really happy they won!

Holy hell - where did you find those pictures?? I shudder to imagine the search terms that might have been used... ;)

I feel like I'm on Sesame Street with all the count downs. "Nine! Nine good reasons to wear black shorts! Ah! Ah! Ah!"

Reasons 6-9 seem a bit digitally enhanced, though.

Robby B, I was wondering that myself....

You are SOOOOO bad! Where do you come up with this stuff? The other thing....only you would put it on your blog!

BTW, my finger really got moving on the scroll bar when my 11 year old came along and started reading over my shoulder. She seemed less impressed or concerned than I. Thank god!

I've got my fingers crossed for you with the Grandma's Marathon. You're gonna rock!

It would seem that picture number 2, aside from the whole time confusion thing, contains some freakishly large hardware. Do you suppose those babies are real? Maybe you should post the picture of their bowlegged girlfriends?

Sending happy marathon thougts your way!

Some of those guys must have been up to something other than bike riding. My equipment is the opposite of happy after a few hours on the bike.

photo #2 - could that be a photoshop job? I hear the bloat tool works wonders!

xt4 9:17 AM, June 12, 2008  

These pictures make me feel a little digitally enhanced myself. Is that wrong?

Best countdown ever. You're gonna kill it out there -

a.maria 10:21 AM, June 12, 2008  

nice. gotta love photoshop huh?!

Mon 11:36 AM, June 12, 2008  

where do they breed men like that? Did I just say that?

D10 11:55 AM, June 12, 2008  

No comment on the pictures!!! Glad to hear the the treatment on your heel is working.

Wedgie 12:34 PM, June 12, 2008  

Let's see how they look after a swim in Lake Coeur d'Alene (currently 51 degrees). SHRINKAGE!

jen 12:48 PM, June 12, 2008  

Haha, I've seen that first pic before. I'm also calling BS on that second one! Pretty funny though. Glad you had a good run! Loving the countdown posts. :)

Benson 12:53 PM, June 12, 2008  

Let's play 'one of these things is not like the other'.
It is fun to dream.
And oh yeah, what wedgie and jen said.

Kaeti 1:35 PM, June 12, 2008  

Yeah, this was definitely NSFW. Wow.

CoachLiz 2:12 PM, June 12, 2008  

ROTFLMAO!!!

I just sent that photo of the Polish cycling team to my buddies yesterday! Moose Nuckle Alert!!!

On that note, I have a Moose Nuckle report that will show up in tomorrow's Switzerland 70.3 race report!

so, so , so wrong.

it's like no matter where i go in the room, they keep following me....

CewTwo 4:48 PM, June 12, 2008  

Ok...

Ewww...

'Nuff said!

the Dread Pirate Rackham 5:47 PM, June 12, 2008  

it's the sausage factory!!! yay!

sRod 7:06 PM, June 12, 2008  

Whoa. I've seen the top pic before, but the one with the guys in the white shorts...that's just wrong. Unless they're competiting in a stripper-dance-off they should never have agreed to wearing those outfits.

Lisa - Slow & Steady 8:17 PM, June 12, 2008  

um. yeah. please warn us next time

Marcy 8:29 PM, June 12, 2008  

Ooooooo la la LMAO! Actually I think those pics are hee-larious!

chia 9:25 PM, June 12, 2008  

God bless the fashion police that let that one slide.

Colleen 9:36 PM, June 12, 2008  

Wow... that's all I can say and yet it covers so many thoughts!

Meg 10:37 PM, June 12, 2008  

Oh dear goodness! I have nothing more to say!

gemini 6:15 AM, June 13, 2008  

Thanks for the "Nine very good reasons why bike shorts are black" post. Good for laugh's

jeanne 12:05 PM, June 13, 2008  

white short guys...they need to start "rowing" in the same direction!

seen the red ones before. never seem to tire of it though.

ShirleyPerly 10:31 PM, June 13, 2008  

I don't think the guys in the 2nd photo are cyclists. Not enough padding in those shorts!

Viv 11:18 PM, June 13, 2008  

How do they get in the aero pothose things?!

Triteacher 4:47 PM, June 17, 2008  

I was looking for a reason to continue to "reading" your blog. I just found 9. ;-)
