My deep dark secret

I have to come clean. I have a secret. It’s embarrassing, and sad. And I’m going to tell you it right now!

I don’t

know how to

change a flat bike tire.

RIGHT!!!!!! I can’t believe I just threw that out into the universe but it’s true. And embarrassing. I’m the worst triathlete EVER!! See the thing is, all my friends that I ride regularily with all know how and keep telling me they’ll show me when one of us gets a flat. But we never get them. They get them if I’m not there, and I’ve never gotten one. I live in fear that one day, during a race, I will get a flat and be stuck crying in the mud on the side of the road because I can’t fix my own bike tire. So, as a general rule, when things perplex me, I head out into the world wide web searching for answers. I found a video that de-mystifies the changing of bike tires and hopefully will stop me from turtling and crying when faced with such an obstacle in real life.

Spring Training

Well it’s that time again, when cherry blossoms are flowering and spring has sprung and race season approaches quickly and reminds me to get it together and go play outside. If you’re me, it’s also the season to go see your physiotherapist because your body hurts. So that’s what I’m up to this week. Physio, training, and working. It’s a good life! I’ve been running with a knee brace and that has been SO helpful! No knee pain this week, but my SI joints are terribly out of whack. Can’t wait for physio! Here’s a few photos from the other day when my sister and I went adventuring!!
