Great Weekend

Anita & I took Mountainbiking 101 with Endorphin Fitness on Saturday.  The instructors were 3 of the same folks who taught the RTC mountainbiking clinic and they were again very informative, very patient and very encouraging.

3 hours of instruction & drills gives me almost enough confidence to get clipless pedals for my mountain bike - a thing I thought I'd never do.  But there is only so much you can make your bike do when you're not attached to it.  Not sure I can make it do anything when I am attached, but what the heck!  I think Anita enjoyed it too, though she got two really nasty pedal knocks.  I was very proud of her for getting back on the bike after the second, really bad one.  She's very brave.  She's also thinking about clipless - or at least pedals without teeth!

We also found out that the bike race associated with Xterra isn't cancelled, it's just not on the same weekend as Xterra.  It's sometime in May...not sure I'll be ready for that, but maybe...

So Happy Easter!  We celebrated just the way we like to - traditional Polish breakfast with my Mom - kielbasa, hard-boiled eggs & horseradish (let the burping begin) and then off to the golf course with good friends.

We played 27 holes of golf with MJ and JJ.  We were only planning on playing 18, but it turned into such a gorgeous day and the golf wasn't killing us either, so we just kept right on.  Yes, my golf game has come back, at least a little - I'm much happier with it.  Friday at lunchtime, I went to the driving range and hit the worst bucket of balls I've ever hit, so I had a bit of trepidation when teeing off today.  But I played pretty well until I started thinking about it too much...had a great day though.  The rest of the group also played well, so we were all happy with the day.

Hope you all had as good a weekend as I did.

Xterra Mountain Bike Assault...

has gone the way of the dinosaur.  So run bike run, or just run run run.  Hmmmm.  Guess I'll check out the Poor Farm races this year....

FYI,  I played OK golf this evening - started off bad, but got better, so I think I'm turning the corner - shame that the corner is one of 4 - I keep going around the same block!

Thanks to Fave, Anita & I are doing the Endorphin mountain bike 101 clinic this weekend.  Anyone else doing it?

Bad Golf

Anita & I played in a golf tournament today.  I played very badly.  It was a very long day.  Fortunately, Anita played well and we were playing as a team, so we came in 4th place and won a prize.

So if I'm bad at golf and I suck at triathlon....

wouldn't it be nice to be good at a sport?

Oh well.  Maybe I'll find a new sport.  I've been told not to play darts.  People could get hurt.
