THanks Easter Bunny!
I went to the Doc yesterday and he gave me the go ahead to start training again. He was amazed that the swelling of my "business" had decreased so dramatically. I was relieved. Seriously, grapefruit sized tackle is no way to live your life. So I rode my bike today and it was glorious. I guess that I'm a serious risk taker because I rode on the Wolf SL fork that has been recalled. Rob, am I supposed to overnight that thing to Dani? I can never catch him on the phone.
I only rode 18 miles. But riding for the 1st time in 3 weeks requires weird things of your body. I'm ok with that, but my knees hurt and my body just wasnt used to it. Riding made me happy though, and I know that I need to do it alot. So I will.
Spent the evening on my knees scrubbing the hardwood floors downstairs after my younger roomates threw a party last night. Not my cup of tea.
Classes officially start tomorrow. I have a 9 am discussion about rotting fish. I'll let you know how it goes.
Congrats to Tkarnes for finally getting a 3 win and a double victory weekend. Long time coming kid.
Congrats to elliot for two strong showings. Sometimes you just have to put it all out there to see what you've got. I live for long breakaways.
And congrats to annie for putting up with me.
Yesterday was a sad, sad day. I became a CA resident. I almost cried when I watched the young DMV kid punch a hole in Alaska id. I wouldnt have done it, but it was the right thing to do. AK doesnt have state income tax and there is actually a fund that each resident receives each year. This year, the Alaska permanent dividend fund was near $2100. On top of that, each resident is getting a $1300 energy rebate (taxing oil is big business). So I miss out on $3300 there. And it cost me $400 to register my car, smog test it, and get my license. Thats $3700. And now I suffer the shame of california id card. But it was for a good cause. The maxwell fellowship will save $9000 next year in my tuition costs if I am a CA resident for a year. Sometimes doing the right thing is hard--and expensive.
