Stream of consciousness 10:30 a.m.

Race in 2 days, got to be fast from the start to the first obstacle... don't crash at the first barrier, grant proposal has to go out by 5:00 today... what else do I have to do for that??? fast at the start. coffee, yes, more please, thank you. More US bail outs of mortgage lenders, how about my bailout? or yours? Vegas, Interbike, bike, bike porn. I have an ace and a 6, dealer shows a 2-6, what do you do? hit, no double. I said yes to more coffee. Text from Lou, getting psyched, respond- yeah I'm nervous. Grant proposal just got alot easier, no pressure, that's better. phone call, phone call, phone call. E-mail, get through those, delete, delete, delete, respond, save, save, delete... dealer has a 3, I have 15, stand. Dealer has a 7, I have 14, hit. save, save, respond. Phone call, let it go to voicemail. Check voicemail, I needed to talk to him. Call back. delete, delete, respond. Get to Jackson Park by 8:00 a.m. Plenty of time, plenty of time to kit up, warm up, number up and preview the course, especially the start. Easy ride tomorrow, some LT, some prints, hour maybe a little more, fresh legs for Sunday. dealer has a 5, I have a pair of 8s, split. Coffee, don't mind if I do.

Thanks for giving a basic outline of my morning as well Jim. I had to stop looking at bike porn, as I realized that it was having the effect of making me feel like I was lining up Sunday at Jackson Park -- very unhealthy. Nice calming boring ass emails to the rescue. Tonight no inspirational cx videos, and tomorrow I may just take a nice long walk. :-)

By the way, I met you a couple of weeks back in the PS -- I was in with my wife buying bar tape and asking about a good place nearby to get a beer.
