The last two weeks i spent time in England visiting family where i am orginally from. If you didnt already know i moved to the USA at the end of 1997. I had not been home since 2003 and it sure was nice to see Mum and Dad and my brother.
We hired a mid size car and just one tank of Petrol (Gas) was $150! and its not like the people there get paid more!
During my trip i managed to run every other day but no bikeing and not much swimming. Which was kind of nice as i need a little break.
We went to many castles as old churchs/Abbeys. When you grow up there you take old buildings for granted but since living in the united states and i now really appreciate churches and castles dating back to the 1100's
Here is a few pictures to show you what i mean:
I have soo many pictures i wont bore you with them all.
On other news i was so happy to hear Bungus Podcast back on the Air!!!!! Keep em coming.
On the race front i think i have decided to drop out the upcoming Mountain bike race and volunteer for the MS150 bike ride that goes near my home town. I feel it was time to give a little back.
I have some more Triathlons in August and my work friends wife is getting ready to run her first ever 5k. I had coached her though the Couch to 5k Program and she shoulb be ready to run her first ever 5k. So i am going to do that with them.
I did not give up on the mountain bike race completely i am just going to postpone it for now.
Ok one more parting shot
