Dodging Snowbirds

You know you are training in Florida when:

a.) You are bonking and try to crack open a coconut for food (take note, if they are green they taste like poo).

b.) You are worried about the sea-shells giving you a flat tire.

This past week I have not only been dodging my Mom's Christmas cookies but also dodging the Florida state bird, the snowbird, better known as Q-tips when behind the wheel (you know, that white poof of hair that barely see's over the dash). Flying solo has reminded me of our greatest training tool.... Our training partners. Those guys (and girls) that make you go that extra hour, the ones that make you go that much harder.... Have you hugged your training partner lately?

So check this out, this is my Mom's idea of a beach cruiser! She has been worried about the possibility of having grand kids and thinks I need to give her seat a try!

On a side note, it is that time of year when I start to put my babies up on the block one by one. My 2005 Madone 5.9 just went up for sale on Road bike review.com. Check it out!

And if a 62 is too large, my teammate Brian Smith has his 56 up on the block as well, tell him Nick sent you.

Looks like you are enjoying yourself down there! Wish the weather was as nice for riding in Wisco.
