A few announcements…

1) I’ve launched a new portion of the blog/website, “Chris’ PR’s.”  While present time I only have one PR, which isn’t really that impressive, its more of a todo list than anything else.  I more than welcome suggestions as to what other races/distances I should add to that list.

2) The background image of the site is probably one of my favorite shots of Seattle.  However anyone around me can tell you that I never keep anything around for very long.  For instance I’m now on my 7th vehicle since high school and on my 4th motorcycle.  (Dont tell the wife but I’m already looking at trading in her Jetta for a new BMW X6 :) ).  With that said, the picture has been up since I relaunched the site and its time for something new.

I’d love to have a reader submit a new background image.  Please use the contact form to send me an email with your photo.  Here are the only rules I’ll make: please send only high resolution images, try to make it either Seattle or Triathlon/Running/Swimming/Cycling related.  Ya’ll have till the end of the month to send your submissions and I’ll make the announcement on Nov 1st with my October update.  There may also be a mystery prize for the winner…

3) Last but not least, I saw my Internal Medicine Doctor today, good news as far as I can tell.  Since the occurrence of my clot is acute (due to my leg being in cast) there is no reason to believe I have a clotting disorder and that as soon as this guy clears up, I shouldn’t have anymore problems.  With that said, they are still going to send me though a battery of tests to rule out genetic clotting disorders.  He also cleared me to return to ‘normal’ training as tolerated by my fracture, so starting tomorrow morning I’m hitting the pool again!!!  Hopefully I remember how to work my watch.

Oh one more thing, continuing in the vein of things I cant keep around long, I’ve been working several deals/trades with bikes in the last few weeks.  I traded the Road King I built about a month ago to a Vet for a hard tail chopper.  I then traded the hard tail for this KTM 450SMR.  Considering that I cant ride at the moment its sitting in my shop just begging to go play.  Ugh.  In the meantime I’m already working on another trade so I can get my dream bike.  More on that later…

Also, as promised, we finally got our professional wedding pics back a couple weeks ago.  Here are couple of our favorites.  I want to share all of them, but I’m sure dropping that photo bomb wont be appreciated, so I’ll dish out a few at the end of every post till I get them all up here.  Enjoy!
