Updates be damned. It works, I like it. I'll keep using it as long as I can. Final grade on our super sophisticated grading scale? 18.7 out of a possible 23.2. Losing marks only for the stupid blinky lights and precarious charging cradle. I'm happy, and if I'm happy life is not crappy.
It was QA/QC testing day for drainage in my new Salomon Speedcross 4s. They were solid in a trail race last weekend. However, the course wasn’t wet or overly muddy, so a backyard drainage trial was in order before I rely on them in an obstacle race. The verdict? Thumbs up all around.
After what has officially been 30 days of a COMPLETE break, I figured it was time to get off my ass and get ready for 2017. I think it is important to be really honest about how I've spent the last 30 days since IRONMAN Cozumel - I've done jack shit. Nothing. My days have consisted of eating everything I wished I could when I was training. Drinking. A lot of drinking. 10 days in Europe travelling around doing nothing. I've stretched a little, but not much. It has been ......... GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, it's that time! 2016 is now sitting firmly in our rearview mirror. With 2017 plans underway, we thought we here at Grindto140 would give you a look back at our year in training, discovering, laughing, and general triathloning madness. What a ride it's been! Here is a baker's dozen of our (and your) favorite posts from 2016 (in no particular order). Read them again, for the first time:
