Let's Rock 'n Roll!

Sorry, guys, if this is TMI but there seems to be some truth to a woman being at her aerobic peak during her period. Despite the discomfort and hassles during a race, I usually perform very well and the Rock 'n Roll Half Iron Triathlon today was no exception.

Final race time: 5:50:21. MUCH better than I expected.

I also got a really cool guitar! (clickable) It has 6 little strings and is painted to memorialize the flaming guitar (Fender Stratocaster) Jimi Hendrix used in 1967.

Race report to follow soon!!

You appear to be picking up a lot of trophies these days. People used to say they were 'over the hill' when they reached 40. It is certainly not so in your case, and hopefully not in my case as, despite being tired with the demands of work, I still feel pretty good swimming. Looking forward to the race report. Well done.
