Your Friendly Neighbourhood Triathlete . . .

I was thinking of how generally great and positive triathletes are. Everyone I have met through this sport has been awesome in one way or another. Last summer when I was running way out on the highway, west of Coleman, I saw a woman get bucked off a horse. I actually stopped my watch first(LOL!!), then went running back down the road, hopped a fence and came to the rescue!! Well, it wasn't just me -- a fellow happened to be driving by and saw the incident as well -- we both arrived at the gate simultaneously. The lady happened to be all right, just in shock. So, I gave her a hug and went on my merry way. I felt just great after that --you know -- all that warm fuzziness?

So, OK, this is kind of dumb, but today when I went to the gym, the ladies change room was closed and I heard the toilet flush (small change room in a small town). After the lady exited, I went into the washroom and saw that she had used the last of the toilet paper. But instead of changing the roll, she had just unwrapped the roll and put it on the floor. I thought to myself -- Well, it's a good thing I'm here! Whoosh! To the rescue! Been bucked from a horse? Don't want to change your toilet paper roll? No problem -- Here is your friendly neighbourhood triathlete to the rescue!! LOL!! I even folded the first square of the toilet paper into the little triangle like they do in nice hotels. Hee-hee! I got a kick out of it -- I am easily amused! LOL!!

Today I swam, but forgot to look at my IG schedule -- so I made up my own. After that, core work, and two chin up attempts. My arm is almost A-OK, but still a little bothersome. So, two-chinups were the best I could do. Later on, I ran 5.13 miles with strides for the last 10 minutes -- OOOOOHHHHI loved it baby!! :):):)

Strides. There's that word again. Susi did it too. What are strides?

I'm laughing looking at the word verification thingie. The "word" is hbumqo, which amuses me in ways I cannot describe.

You need a cape--and a mask--oh, maybe a golden lariat too--scrap the cape, it just gets caught in doors and jet engines.
