At least I have a valid excuse this time — shortly after my last blog post, I spilled a drink on my laptop. Sent it off for repairs, which took 3 weeks. I got it back and the keyboard still hasn’t been fixed, so I will shortly be calling to complain and get this sorted out. Spoiler alert: there will probably be another delay with the next blog post going up. Couple updates on things after the weekly updates.

Things of note:
1. I had my first “bike accident” on 04/15. I was biking into Center City, approaching a red light, with 4-5 cars sitting at the light. As I started passing stationary cars, a lady opened the back door of her car to get out. My handle crashed into her door, and over the bars I went. Fortunately it was my commuter bike, so I wasn’t clipped in, and I was wearing a helmet, and pretty bundled up, so I landed primarily on my hip and didn’t do any major damage to myself. After assessing the situation, I went on my way, but was certainly pretty sore the next couple days and kept me from getting in a few days worth of workouts.
2. The bachelor party in Austin was amazing. Not going to share much about what happened, but I’ve now bumped MBA School to the list of things I need to get the ball rolling on. In unrelated news, I had a short training week that week. I hope that when I move there I’m able to find a better balance of training/fun (and school).
3. Lots of presents arrived in the past few weeks…
Greater > Than:
drawstring bag, tech t-shirt, 2x t-shirts, hoodie, snapback hat (this is the coolest thing ever…), water bottle, swim cap, stickers, temporary tattoos, eye liner.
k-swiss kwicky lights, fuelbelt, water bottle, trucker hat, tri top, tri bottom, spider tech tape, tattoos
cycling top, cycling bib, wind vest, tri bottom, arm warmers
blueberrry/banana energy blasts, apple/mango energy blends
I think that’s all the relevant stuff for now. Still cold in Philly. Looking forward to warm weather and RACE SEASON (Bassman Half – 05/05) to finally start!
