Merry Christmas

It is Christmas Eve and the president and sole member of my fan club, Steve Brandes, requested a blog for Christmas. Merry Christmas Steve!

Here are some important things to know:

-Gear West Bike is open 10-2 today if you haven’t gotten me a present yet. You should probably hurry on that one. If you don’t know exactly what to get me a gift card is always safe, otherwise a QR CD.01 is a reasonable option.

-We have a friend living in our basement. I had my reservations since she is a former Canadian and Wisconsinite. If you know me at all you know I have strong opinions about those two groups of people. So far she has defied the stereotypes and is a good, clean, hard working person. She is a good fit because she and I have the same haircut and she and my girlfriend are both nurses who work the 3-11 shift. The only downside is I’m outnumbered as the only man in the house so I lose all the house votes.

-I am coaching Mondays and Fridays at Genesis Aquatics. Scott Tripps has built a great masters program with consistently solid workouts and a fun group of people. It is impressive to see his energy and focus on deck, the guy can keep track of 5 lanes of different intervals and also know everyone’s times as they come in! My brain can’t cope with that many different numbers. I coach the 5:30 and 6:30 practices then jump in for the 7:30 practice.

-Training is going well. This is week 7 for 2013, no time like the present to get faster. 2012 was not the season I hoped for so I’m pretty fired up for 2013. As soon as Rev3 publishes their 2013 pro series I’ll be able to figure out my race schedule.

    I’m more than a little hurt that I haven’t been recognized as a member of your fan club. This cuts deep my friend, very deep.
