Mother's Day Weekend

Wow..what a weekend. First let me back up to Friday. I got my shoulder/tricep workout in Friday evening and it felt great.

I was going to get up on Saturday morning and do my second brick workout but Friday evening I was talking to my father-in-law and we decided we would go down to cheer on our friend David in his triathlon! Saturday morning I picked up my father-in-law around 7:15 and we were off to Clemson which is about an hour or just under an hour drive. When we got down there we were greeted by David's wife and my friend Mendy and also friends Robin and Scott. What a blast it was to watch. It really got me foaming at the mouth to do tri's. David did a fantastic job and really looked and acted like a pro out there! Great job David! All that hard work is paying off and I know I speak for Bob as well when I say we look forward to maybe catching another race this year! Congrats on the great finish.

Well, instead of a weekend full of workouts it was a weekend spent with family. It was great spending time with family that's located on the other side of the country. They will be flying back to LA tomorrow afternoon. My daughter Gracie has had a blast playing with her cousins.

Today will be chest/bicep and core day as well as a 5 mile run tonight. I hope everyone had a great Mother's day and make it a great Monday! - Jason

Nothing better than spending time with family and friends. Sounds like you have a great weekend.

I'm sure that was fun. I want to go watch a tri sometime soon as well. Maybe I can make it to one in June! Good for you! It was a great weekend for being with the family, was it not? Have a great run...

Jason that sounds much more fun than watching an 8k, I'd love to watch a tri! I can imagine it would make you itch to get on in there! Hope your 5 miles is a great one.

yep. I agree that sometimes the family time is more rewarding than the workout. Keep it up.

Thanks again Jason for coming out. It was a fun time, and you helping with Grace was great. I've got to get her the "future triathlete" shirt so she can wear it at the tri's, since we'll be got more to come.

Glad you had a great time with your out of town family.

Jason, I really appreciate you and Bob coming out to Clemson to root me on. That was a big race, with lots of activity, so you saw probably a good representation of a "big" sprint tri. Sorry if I was a bit distant when I talked to you, but I was fighting back the un-swallow impulse.

Glad you have enjoyed the family visiting. I'm looking forward to Bob's account of the weekend and activities.
