Portable...A Necessity in Triatholon...

When I say portable, I mean it! There are all kinds of ways triathletes have devised to carry various items with them while competing. I wish I had a shot of the salt tabs they tape to there bikes, its hilarious looking but absolutely needed! Instead, here is a shot from the 2006 Ironman World Championships in Kona, HI. This is the transition area from bike to run, everything ready for them, just grab and go! And if you want to get even more portable...check out this totally portable hydration tablet...NUUN...they just came out with a new flavor...KonaCOLA!

Nor'easter...oooo its stormy!

Ooooo I squeezed this shot in, thanks to the encouragement from my mentor jkirlin, who is also my lowly humble servant! He thinks all my shots are grrrrrrrrreat!:)
So yeah, this is from the last Nor'easter before the past monsoon we had here in NH. It was about a foot and a half of snow. Great snowshoeing weather. So when I went to edit this shot, I was not digging it at all. I don't know if I was tired of digging out of the snow or what but as I re-edited it tonight, I now kinda like it. Its kind of amazing that the camera picked up all those snowflakes and yes they are real snowflakes and not a dirty lens....:)

MMMmmm Ice Cream Cake!

So Mike and I celebrate birthdays within two weeks of each other and this year we celebrated with an ice cream cake from Coldstone Creamery. I must say it was quite tasty but it doesn't even come close to the best ice cream ever from the Penn State Creamery. Not only do they have awesome ice cream but also use nifty names like "Peachy Paterno..."one of my favorites!

Spring Teaser?

Well it has been a few days since I posted, it seems as if I am being a slacker...but I think with Spring here at least for a few days I will be inspired...till next time...hopefully sooner than later!

If I only had a brain...

Ok so its not the Scarecrow but you gotta make due when you still have 8 inches of snow on the ground in the middle of APRIL and all of my crocuses have croaked! Kinda reminds me of the scene in The Wizard of OZ where Dorothy is dancing through a field of poppies and it begins to snow...
Speaking of The Wizard of OZ, I am distantly related to the "Tin Man." How cool is that! But as I did some research I found some interesting info...I need to sort through it and I will post it later, so check back!

He is Risen!!! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Alleluia! One of my favorite days of the year...Easter Sunday! There is just something so exhilarating in the air on this day...even when we still have 6 inches of snow on the ground...:) I am thankful for my has brought me peace and also strength in time of weakness. Although I call myself a practicing Catholic, that does not directly translate into "perfect little angel." I find that no matter who you are or what you believe you are my brother or sister, you are always going to make mistakes, choose the wrong path, and utterly fail throughout life but for me its nice to know that there is Someone who understands me, who loves me no matter what, who guides me and who always shows me that although there is darkness, the light is never far from sight...
