Did I say crazy?

I know that I am crazy for signing up for the Try Andy's Tri Sprint Triathlon mid October, but I thought why not. Actually I could think of a lot of why nots. So I figured since I was crazy I had better stop being lazy and get off my duff. Tonight after getting back from a work fun function I decided it was time to hop on my bike trainer for a little ride in the 100° garage. While hooking up the bike I did find a fan to at least circulate the hot air around in the garage. So I got it all hooked up, aired up, helmet on, shoes on and off we went... well sort of. I rode for 20 min. I had wanted to do 30 but it was just too dad gum hot in there. I am just thrilled that I got on the bike. I need to really get after it these next 5 weeks though or else. So wish me luck as I continue to get used to my new ride in the garage safely strapped to a trainer where I can clip in, clip out till my heart's content without risk of falling. I guess I should take my new wheels out on the road soon. Maybe this weekend if we don't get hit by Ike. I need to name my bike. Any ideas?

We don't say crazy, we say "needs medication" - lol.

Good job for riding in the heat...I can't imagine.

You do know that falling is an inevitable part of crossing over to the dark side? When I first fell, I was hoping for blood. All I got was dirt and a red patch. I guess this is better than a serious injury. Hmm.
