Despite the wet conditions... fast
Skibby-do you know this guy Kilun? He is DFL although I think 14 abandoned during this stage
Well, I'm fairly certain I will not win any award for guest blogger or even be asked back by Mr. Positivity. But honestly, I couldn't care less. What, did any of you think I was really doing this for your entertainment? :) I had fun. Thanks for those of you who who read or just looked at the pics. I'll take it.
This is what I'm going to remember along with one other thing...

That is it- no more chick pics so you can look at Sickboy's blog now. Oh, I forgot. He's not allowed to blog anymore. Someone deserves huge thanks for that!!!
Almost left the camera at home. Didn't want it to fall from my jersey during my sprint stuff today. With overgear efforts I look like Ryan Bailey (monkey f^*&king a football as his coach says). Not that anyone cares but I'm not forcing you to read :) Now if I only was as fast as him it wouldn't be so funny.

Against my better judgement to post! Blame it on that mini keg.
Finally the train
Finally arrived at the last stop and I headed out looking for a few hills East of San Diego, Chula Vista. Not exactly sure where I ended up but there were 3 of this type of climbs on home lined twisty roads. I'd guess about 1500 feet and a mile long. I got what I was looking for and more. For a average old track sprinter, I felt pretty good on the first two. Let's not talk about the third but I made it.
Not at all that impressive for a real roadie. Almost to the top in the background.
Looking down. The roads were too twisty to get a good perspective with a pic.
By the time I got back to the coast the weather had really changed. I heard off and on rain is coming in for the next few days. It is still way better that 8 degz.

View from backyard
Sorry Skibby, Pamela Anderson wasn't there today. Brad Huff wasn't there either -sorry Sickboy!
The day of riding yesterday took its toll. Apparently, despite dropping 5kgs during the winter and getting a new Damocles, you can't fool your body into thinking you are a roadie after 1 day or for me, probably ever. But I went out for another 45 miles today with the last half tailwind:) The new bike fells better everyday.
This is what the guy who owns this place left for me. He said enjoy! I think I'm going to need help.
Heading to a cool vegetarian place on the Pacific in Luecadia - then I'd better get going on that mini keg-haha.

Despite the issues, it is tough to be anything but Mr. Positivity. The weather is good, the new shoes are better, the riding is the best and the new bike is simply awesome! OK, I'm going to get batteries for tomorrow and will have some good riding pics. It's supposed to be 60's and sunny!

I thought I'd relieve some of the obvious pressure Skibby has been feeling because of his newly adopted Power of Positivity mantra.
He couldn't possibly continue that forever. Look what happened to his right arm. Hell, did you hear him on BTDC? You could hear the pressure cracking in his voice. (I promised someone I'd stop listening for a while- :))
For this reason, I will be guest blogging for a short time so he can take a well deserved rest ( I think in Hollywood they call it Rehab). I wonder if his Henchman is heading up the security detail? The Prez will be back to preach the "Mr. Positivity" message in about a week. I'm heading to Southern CA. to do some training (you know that is all I like to do) and hopefully get to the Tour of Cali. While Skibby is convalescing, he asked me to get a few special pics to post. I'll do my best.
So if you don't find my words entertaining (can't blame anyone for that) I hope to have some good pics to post. First attempt - Leaving work to pack and then to the airport. I thought this was funny. I promise, they will get better if my camera doesn't break:)
It is a Buick Park Avenue -check the vanity plate
