The old faithful

A real pleasure this morning to ride with a few friends. Just a River Ride, and not at a great pace, but good company and a good solid ride.

One of the girls lives on the north side, while for the other three of us, the River Ride is an old faithful. It struck me how familiar I was with where we were riding, but for Katharine, there were only glimmers of familiarity. Every so often, she would remark, "Oh, I know where we are now".

Everyone has an old faithful ride, or run. They can become a little old and tired after a while, but introducing others to them can make you realise how fun they were for you at some time way back when, and help you to see them differently.

20 bucks in 20 seconds

A stroke of fortune tonight that I checked out the Triathlete Chronicles and followed the link to the Australian Longcourse Championships. I was kicking myself this morning when I thought I missed the Early Bird cutoff... happily the cutoff is midnight tonight. So, I'm in, and I saved myself $20.

OK, so entering took me a little more than 20 seconds... but I love 20 bucks in 20 seconds on Rove... And just for the record, I'd turn gay for Cameron Diaz.
