Morning Rides, YOLO, Tie-dye and Smoken Butts

Let's start of with the good decisions I've made the past few days. Thursday morning started of with our normal '30A' ride. It was an amazing sunrise with a great group of people to ride with. My legs where a bit sore from the pickups we ran the night before (7X90 sec with 1 min between) - but we just cruised along and enjoyed the beauitful morning:




Later on that night - we had our monthly YOLO board race. Since I was the ONLY MEMBER of our four member team that could make the race - I called in a few trusty tri-ladies to help out. Even though none of them have even been on a YOLO board before - we still had a GREAT time.



Friday a few friends of mine from Orlando came to visit for the night. I've known Dawn forever and we always have a good time when we get together. Dawn and her boyfriend are an amazing support crew - every race that I've done in or around Orlando they let me shack up at their place as well as come and cheer me on which is awesome. Anyway - they came in town that evening and we started of the night Tie-dying with my sister. I had some baby shower gifts that I needed give some character to as well as spruce up my Zenzah socks:



And here is where it gets ugly. We decided to stop by Publix so we could cook at home. Had an amazing dinner which involved a ton of wine. Headed off to Caliza Pool at Alys Beach (really-check out the link. It's an amazing pool/bar) and then off to Bud And Aly's. Needless to say - this was the only picture taken all night:


I. Felt. Like. Death. the next morning. It was a great time - but now I remember why I don't drink multiple bottles of wine anymore! I'm not freaking 21 anymore :) But thankfully the day was overcast and rainy - so I just laid around the rest of the day and got some quality tv time in.

So riding this morning - Jim pointed out the place that should sponsor us:


Ohh..the sweet tri-wear ideas are endless with that name...hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Glad you had lots of fun with your friend. Smok'n Butts would be a great sponsor! Hope you have a great week.

I bet they'd LOVE to have their names on some hot tri butt.

Beautiful sunrise to ride in there!

OK, I would totally wear a suit that said Smokin Butts BBQ...hell, I'd even put a pig on it. Yeah, less pictures when we're hammered as we get older. Don't need it falling into the wrong hands...

Those pictures of sunrise were beautiful! I love the smokin-butts sponsorship idea too! You HAVE to get t-shirts made. How did you learn how to tye dye..I've ALWAYS wanted to do that. I like the socks - rad!

Smokin butts -- PRICELESS.

Great shots. I can't drink endless amounts of wine anymore either (remember I was the drunk cousin at the wedding. nice.) YOLO looks like so much fun. Looks like you also had an awesome group of ladies to work with.
