Where does the time go??

I cannot believe is nearly the end of October. This month is FLYING by for multiple reasons. Work has been unreal as far as the volume, but I'm happy in the job and am glad to be doing something real and working with some good Soldiers. We have some ground to cover as far as building up some basic endurance beyond 1-2 miles and up to a good 4. We will get there though. Thankfully I have NOT been having to spend large amounts of time training, but I do miss it and am going to be getting back into the groove. There is an organized ride this Saturday I'm going to do, a nice 67 miles I think...I am looking forward to it. Hopefully I'm not too cold though, we got a cool front through that means low 70's in the day and even mid-40's at night!! WOW, cold for us Texans! Haha!

I am ready for the election nuttiness to be over. I wish I cared for either, but I'm just extremely frustrated with it all and am ready for us to have better options in 4-years. I dislike the concept of voting for the "lesser of two evils" but considering I highly despise the views of one candidate, I'll be voting for the other. It's going to be an interesting 4-years either way though.

One week from today I'll be in Panama City Beach, FL. I have never been to that part of Florida. I am GREATLY anticipating it!! I will be volunteering at Ironman Florida on 1 November. On 2 November I will be standing in line and signing my name (and some $$'s) away as I become a registered participant for Ironman Florida 2009. It's going to be a crazy journey training for an Ironman, but I am incredibly excited about that journey. Everyone I know that has done one has learned so much about themselves as they've pushed themselves past anything they could imagine. You will hear a lot about it here, that's for sure.

Nothing incredible in today's post, I just hadn't written anything in a while and thought that I should.

I hear ya on the election stuff. I'm so sick of hearing ads and people arguing over politics.

Enjoy your ride this weekend. I too would be cold in those sub-70 temps ;-)

I bet volunteering at IMFL will be a blast! You are going to do great next year too!
