Done Voting

And the Elections are finally done! No more campaign ads, television, radio or mail. The post person is probably a lot happier. I certainly didn't enjoy getting all that mail in support of this proposition or that proposition. I'd also like to thank all those in my neighborhood who voted early or by mail, you guys made Tuesday painless. I showed up with a book, ready for the long wait and to my surprise, a short wait - less than an hour.

Tuesday was the second time I voted this week. Monday was the elections for our triathlon club. Much thanks to the outgoing board, thanks Jennie for being our Social Director this year. Big congratulations to Julia our new club pres and the rest of the gang. I know most of the folks in the new board and I think it's going to be a fun year next year. For starters the new run lead will also be running the Northface ultra with me in December. Maybe I can talk him into leading more trail runs for next year, that would be fun. Since my last triathlon back in May, I've been MIA in the club, something I plan to rectify for next year.

Ironically my break from triathlon is now official. I've told my tri friends that I'm done bouncing between ultra-marathoning and triathlon and that I've decided to focus on running. I've declared it publicly. I'm done with liberal arts and have decided to pick my major so to speak. Oh I'll still swim and bike, especially the bike but no more triathlon races, at least for the next 2 years or so.

Done voting for awhile.

P.S. Thanks for all the comments on the last post. Blogger won't let me leave comments on my own blog. I'm locked out.

Hanging with my good friend Julia who is now our new club pres. I'm trying to score extra drink tickets for future social events, pays to rub elbows with those in the know:) Julia is a pal who has given me many a ride home from track and has invited a dozen other people to my birthday celebration tomorrow.

    Your picture came out weird. And I have difficulties commenting.
    Jeez, no more tri? Was it hard? Are you floating on your speedy ultras? Just in case, try not to put too much pressure on yourself now. But I am very happy to see your progress.

  2. Whooooaa that pic looks crazy. Looks fine when you click on it though.

    Wow, no more tris?!? I bet Java will convince you otherwise while you're out in AZ :P

  3. The Tri world is sad today.

  4. Well you still have to coach me in tris, ok? :>P

  5. If I read the fine print correctly am I to gather that you are celebrating a birthday tomorrow...if so...HAPPY BIRTHDAY. If not, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. :)

  6. What? It's your birthday tomorrow? HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Yay for you!

  7. Marcy: So I was having a glass of wine when I posted, ok two and I forget to check my post! Funny what one number in the wrong place will do.

    Mike: Well I'll still be out there biking and swimming just no more races. I don't need to be training for a triathlon when all I want to do is race trail.

    J~Mom: Sure lady and if I don't know the answer I'll find someone who does.

    Dave: Yep it is, one more year. Thanks.

    Victoria: Thanks and thankfully not another age group, those older guys are FAST!
