Tantalus

Rode the Tantalus Time Trial yesterday. Like every other time I've rode this hill, it rained. I'm beginning to not like this hill, not because it's a difficult climb, but because it always rains and the roads suck. Climbed the 4.5 mile hill in 25:11. Not sure what the results were, since I didn't stick around for awards, but I'm pretty sure my race was good enough to put me in the middle of the pack. I'd like to think I could do better, maybe if I rode this hill occasionally, or had I skipped the Jack in the Box earlier in the week...maybe those 3 beers and a cream puff weren't the best meal the night before a race.

The ride down the hill sucked...it was rainy and cold. I could barely see in front of me due to being pelted in the face with rain. Road conditions are horrible with loose gravel everywhere.

Here I am at the start, getting my pre-race prostate exam.

Well, if your going to ride anywhere tha lush expect a little moisture on the ride. Still you're an inspiration to us all.

So was the prostate exam normal, and shouldn't Sonya be the one normally giving those?

Had some interesting results. Need you to come in to see me this week. No spicy food or broccoli 72 hours prior. Bring a round pillow.

Leo,

According to Kramer, folks like yourself are the life of parties...
