Stage 1 of the Post-Halloween Triathlon, my weekly run, even done on time this week. Sure isn't easy.

A pretty quick change of clothes as the storm was getting closer. Stage 2, on my own on the bike, so time to up the effort. Flats south of town. The wind was from the south, and a good bit stronger than when I was doing stage 1, maybe 15-20, the leaves were on the move, so the first half was hard work. The second half was hard work too, because why not.
And then another quick change into my pulling outfit (old clothes and two pairs of gloves) for stage 3, pulling more bittersweet. Working hard on this one too, but I've been training. Rain was just starting as I was finishing. Perfect.
Still waiting for results, but likely a spot on the podium?
And then something to eat and a cup of coffee. And something I never look forward too, it'll now get dark about 5 pm. Whoopee.
Snowed all morning. By the time it stopped in early afternoon we had perhaps an inch. Went out late afternoon, Mt. Toby -- training area many many times over the last 36 years, though not so much recently -- was looking very fine.
My annual "wellness check." It includes lots of numbers when you add in the data from the blood tests.
It seems there is really only one of those numbers that you can't do much about, and that one, sad to say, has declined again. 64.75 inches this time, down a full two inches from my peak. In addition to the psychological damage, it also affects the body mass index calculation, pushing me closer to the obese category. Maybe this visit ought to be called the "badness check."
