This was the radar after I woke up this morning. There were 4 of us heading to the open water swim. Iron Snoopy called me at 530am. Looking at the radar and 1.25 hour ride to get there, it was decided-game over for today. I headed back to bed and fell to sleep trying to figure out plan B for today.



I am beginning to wonder about making plans with Snoopy. She has got this weather thing going on. Her 2nd Tri got rained out. She went to Kansas 70.3 to watch a friend. It was cancelled due to weather. She came to watch me at Subaru and when she arrived a storm hit and the race was delayed for an hour. So this morning when I was getting ready for her to pick me up, I was not surprised that there was a storm warning. Tomorrow we are meeting at 545am to "BAKE CUPCAKES" (LOL).Just kidding Snoopy!!!!


When I woke up, Plan B popped into my head. The Tour De France was on. I headed for the basement and rode the final 50K of todays segment with the Pelotone(in my vitual world). It actually rocked. I had a good hard ride for 1:15. I will head for the pool and swim 2000 later. Also in my virtual world, I won the sprint at the end. WooHoo!!

Waddling to hit the shower after a hard day on the Tour.............

Dude - you should plan things with Greyhound. Everywhere he goes the weather is awesome.

Congrats on winning this stage! Now, hold onto that jersey! Don't wear it at Steelhead, though---it'll make you a target!

Way to make the best of the situation...

Maybe Snoopy can come do a rain dance out our way. We could use the rain. :)

We have had a ton of really wild weather this year in the Midwest, no?

Big drag, especially since our nice weather season is short enough as it is.

I like the cupcake idea. Make mine vanilla!

Well, I have a friend who braved the weather and radar and made it to Crystal Lake. She called on her way home to tell me how great it was. No rain, no delay, sun during the swim! Wouldn't you know it! Drats!
Oh well.....

Riding with the tour coverage--what a great idea!

Hope you had a better Sunday--great weather, FINALLY!

Virtual worlds are a great Plan B. :-)

I hope she doesn't bring bad karma to Steelhead! That's all we would need, to finally get there and then have bad weather, a cancellation, or a rain delay. Glad you got some sort of workout in. I had to resort to Plan B all weekend too.
