1. Some news is out this morning on Alberto Contador testing positive for a banned substance. Hmmm.... don't I remember a little incident last summer of someone not stopping and waiting for a fellow competitor. Hmmm..... unwritten tour sportsmanship practices? Stopping for downed cyclists or mechanicals? Theres just nothing better for breakfast than a good cup of hot carma.
2. Woke up early this morning. Came downstairs to hop on the computer. Posted a reply on Patrick's blog at The Road. The west coast post time? A very impressive 3:11 a.m. Now the official purpose of comment number two.... THREE DAYS OUT FROM THE RACE..... BODYWEIGHT.....186 POUNDS!! Finally!! Another step down. Remember, last Christmas I was at 214.
3. I'm at a crossroads again. We are nearing the end of our Girls Softball Season and I have to decide if I want to continue as Coach P's right hand man, trusty side kick, or Boy Friday. (Take your pick.) It has been a difficult season. We are sitting at 5-14. If we play well, we have a shot at winning Monday and Tuesday to close out the regular season. We also have a good shot at a Wednesday win to open district play. This would put us at 8-14 playing in the semifinals of districts. This is my third season back and has been VERY difficult for various reasons. I am feeling A LOT of pressure to make the correct decision regarding my return. The time requirement is always an issue. More importantly--on several occasions this fall, I've been running very high stress, and haven't been a very good husband, dad, friend, teacher, or boy friday. (Again, take your pick.) Decisions, decisions, decisions.
