Dear Livejournal...

Sorry I've been ignoring you, I have to admit much of my Tri related training and personal life stuff has migrated over to Facebook. I have to say the only real reason for that is I've been too busy, too tired or in too much pain to write anything more than 256-character posts that Facebook allows for status.

So, heres a summary of what I've been up to.

First up, I got ticketed for speeding going across South 1st Bridge after Blaize's Toga Party. Actually I got stopped for drink driving, but since I was perfectly sober the cop did the nice thing and ticketed me for "just" [his words] doing 40 in a 30 speed limit. Except at least as far as the signage goes's at the point at which he pulled out to stop me, I was in a 35MPH zone. Thinking about an appeal/Not guilty plea.

As if that wasn't enough, I full in a full Roman centurion outfit when he stopped me and did the whole DWI thing, not sure who it was more embarrassing for, him or me.

Next-up my knee. It hasn't been right since I had it drained and a cortisone shot before Florida 70.3 - my miracle cure turned into a nightmare. Combine this with the ongoing treatment for Plantar warts and my running is back below zero. I'll write some more on this, along with an entirely separate post on the plantar warts.

Cycling has been going well. I've done the Real Ale Ride, and the Atlas Ride, along with the Jack and Adams Sunday rides I've been clocking in around 100 miles per w/e. Swimming has been mediocre but ongoing. I need to step up my game.

I was out in Silicon Valley for a week for work. It was very interesting, but not for here. One thing worth mentioning though is I got to visit darcylynnein hospital after a serious road traffic accident. She was in great spirits, and was managing as best she could. Hope you are ok, sorry I have not been in touch...

Finally, Gareth Emery from the UK is coming to Austin this weekend to play a gig a the Light Bar on Congress. I get to collect Gareth from the airport and have dinner with him before the gig, he is friends with my eldest Daughter, Ella. Check out his podcasts here, I don't expect to see any of you there, but you never know, alkaloids ? I've got a free guest list place...

I'm sure there are other things, but thats it for now.
