Yeah, maybe it was on a bicycle.  So what?

Last night, or probably this morning, I had this dream that I was swimming in the open water of a lake in a triathlon.  I was very far behind the pack when all the sudden a wave of bodies that had made it to the turn around was coming right at me.  So I went down in the water a little so they could go over me, but then I started to sink.  Everything started getting black.  It freaked me out and I immediately woke up.  I wondered if it was a sign for me not to go on my ride today.  Then I figured maybe I just watch too much TV.

Word to the wise: If you wear shorty shorts when riding a bike in the sun for 3 hours, don't forget sunscreen.

Nice ride! Thanks for not posting a pic of your crispy legs :)

I'll send you a private picture.

Nice miles today. I think you need to do a tri now that you've had dreams about them.

From ben on Tue, Mar 19, 2013 at 15:57:29 from

Sounds like a wet dream to me.

From Burt on Tue, Mar 19, 2013 at 16:13:54 from

Ericka - That's how you interpret the dream where I was drowning? I should do a tri? Um, no.


From Ericka on Tue, Mar 19, 2013 at 21:10:01 from

Totally normal to have near death experiences in your dreams. Real life, you're good :0)

Nice psychoanalyzation.

Sunscreen is overrated. Who doesn't love red/peeling/itchy inner thighs and hips?

From Burt on Wed, Mar 20, 2013 at 13:32:44 from

Inner thighs and hips? Geez Tara, I wasn't riding naked!

From Burt on Wed, Mar 20, 2013 at 13:33:33 from

Furthermore, I don't want to hear about your GC.

From Tara on Wed, Mar 20, 2013 at 17:30:56 from

C'mon. And yes, you do.

Any words for the unwise?

Um, man who stands on toilet is high on pot?
