SORRY FOR THE DELAY, KIDS

my race report has sadly stalled due to the Lakers being in the NBA Championship finals and the fact that i've pretty much been under the weather since i got home a week ago. i thought i had it beat, but it came back with a vengeance today while on a shoot. i have presented with a mild fever and aches. can't really say if it's related to my travels or the fact that my immune system becomes particularly depleted after a big race. considering this was THE BIGGEST RACE OF MY LIFE (note, i didn't say hardest race), i'm not too surprised by my symptoms. it could be a combo of both factors. i found someone to sub for me for tomorrow's shoot and plan to sit right here on the couch the entire day. if the symptoms get worse, i'll definitely be heading to the doc. all that to say, sit tight, i'll be back. hopefully tomorrow i can knock out a good portion of the report for y'all to enjoy. right now, i'm tired and achy and the Lakers just beat the Celtics, so i expect to sleep relatively well tonight after a good dose of something with the letters "PM" in the product name.

I have no idea what medication you are talking about, but I sympathise. My bike was stolen. I think the gods are trying to tell me not do this thing. I told them where to shove it. Get well soon I am dying to read about the race. I feel so ignorant about it.

Hey Chica!!!

It is totally normal to be under the weather after the big race. Remember, you did not take it easy after the race! Rest and while you sit tight, enjoy some of the photos I have posted from Switzerland. Now that was the HARDEST race I have ever done.

No pressure. I waited years for that Harry Potter series to come out...Hey by the way, I'm planning to do a radio report on Ironman tattoos, collecting some sound and interviews while I'm at IM CdA. If you haven't already gotten inked, and wouldn't mind being part of the story, let me know when you go for your tattoo, so I can document the experience for a national audience of 9 million. If you set up your camera for me, I'll also take photos. Serious. Then you have to buy your bike a custom name decal...
