I have…

I have…pretty new tri shoes for my bike.  But I won’t get to wear them to race this weekend – Speedplay’s staff is off playing at Sea Otter and not fulfilling orders for my bike shop this week so cleats for my new shoes will wait.  It’s OK, now I get time to practice wearing them before Rev3.

I have…algae in my sinuses.  Not really.  I hope.  But I swam at Quarry Lakes yesterday and the water has apparently been a welcoming environment for green growth.  I spent the whole half hour watching green globs float past my face.  It made me feel like I was going fast LOL

I have…a crapload of work to get done before Rev3.  My first draft of a big regulatory filing have to be completed by the end of next week with the final done by the week of the race.  Busy little bee, I am! 

I have…one seriously full schedule for this weekend.  2 playoff hockey games (1 home, 1 away), 2 races (1 as a spectator, 1 as a participant), and a dog show.  Do you ever look forward to Mondays as being more restful than your weekend?

I have…one more event to look forward to this weekend.  Six hopefully bouncy and healthy Stanley-Leezza puppies (American/Canadian CH Highlander He Shoots He Scores HT NA NAJ PJ1 x CH Burlesque The Diplomat) are due to be born in the next few days!  I firmly believe this stuff is not to be undertaken lightly, with the showing and titling and health testing and temperament evaluation.  In addition, I’ve always felt it was very important for me to put titles “on both ends of the dog” – i.e. not just show my dogs in conformation but prove they are biddable, smart and can work in multiple venues (agility, herding, obedience, etc).  With that said, I’m very excited for Pat Colombo of Burlesque Bearded Collies and wish I lived closer to Ohio so I could be there to evaluate Stanley’s kiddos.
