Alright gang, JT, is feeling much much much better and I want to thank you all for the get well wishes as they really helped speed recovery.
Saturday I was not able to make the TNT 1st training run due to some work stuff I had to handle so that really Sucked, missing it but what can you do, right?
In the afternoon, my brother/sister inlaw from down south Texas came into town and it was quick to bust out some Coronas and toast a short reunion. Then later we all headed out to a little place that's basically an old garage that is a ice house/beer place and they always have a DJ and it's nice to just relax, bust a move and throw some cold ones back with Family! We got home about 2am and I went straight to bed as JT is not used to this type of living. I had thought about meeting up with my TNT tri group Sunday morning to catch a 30 mile ride but I knew by 12am that there was no way I was going to make it.
Sunday, I slept in till about 10am, although it was kind of hard as I could here the family coming in and out of the house and making noise. I finally got out of bed and it was go time. We ate lunch, talked, laughed, and watched part of a movie. Then it was time for the bro inlaw to head back home so me and Mrs. JT, and other bro/sister-inlaw hopped on our bikes to follow them about 50 miles out of town. Yes, it was the hottest day of the year here in Houston and we we're out riding a motorcycle! Good thing I put the 50 block on as it was so freakn` hot, you could have fried an egg on my arm!
Finally made it back home, showered and have been relaxing.
My bro inlaw from South Texas, Mark, and his wife, my wife's sister, Yoland, moved down there about 1 year ago and we don't see them that much so it's nice to hang with them and catch up.
We might be meeting up with them again in Oct. down on Padre Island as there is a big motorcycle rally and I would like to ride down and have some fun. We will definitely be meeting up in Nov, the week before The Woodlands Series as there is a HUGE Rally in Galveston and we all booked hotel rooms and are totally excited to be staying down there this year as last couple of years we drove back and forth and I live about 50 miles away.
I like that the Nov Rally is the start of my Recovery week for the 50.5 distance! Ha! What a way to start recovering, beer, babes, and motorcycles!
PS. On Friday I got my 2006 Ironman Hawaii video my dad recorded, thanks Dad and mom for sending it out so fast. But OMG, I was really impressed by the NBC Coverage and how great the race was. As always they have great stories and this year was not different with Jon "Blazeman" Blais #179. I remeber seeing him in 2005 coverage and 2006 he is pretty much in a wheel chair, I was a little misty eyed let me tell you. I did look up that Jon passed away on May 27, 2007.
