summer in Maine....ha! Yea right.

I just bought a new gallon of the concentrated Simple Green solution...I had to,I had run out...FROM WASHING MY FRICKIN BIKE! Wow, was late May-early June WET. I think I heard it was the wettest June since 1903? Crazy. I am glad an IM is not on the schedule as I can handle a couple of hours out in it...but not 6+.

ok, enough weatherman BS.

Since my Nationals, Worlds, etc post, things have been rolling along per normal for a dad/husband/wanna be athlete/coach. Lots of racing going on, lots of kid time going on, and my first Fathers day home since I have had children!

You see, every year since 2004 I have had an early season camp, usually in Lake Placid, and it almost ALWAYS fell on Fathers Day. For 2009, I teamed with Peak Performance and because of a race sponsorship for them, we moved it one week forward. 1 week after Mooseman for some of the campers...ouch.

We had a solid group of athletes and 3 other knowledgeable coaches. We got in 2+ days of solid sessions with some of the group running LP half Marathon sunday AM and the rest training on their own. Look for a bunch of these guys and gals on 7/26 ripping it up!

So I got a fathers day with the was lovely.:-)

Now I am planning out the rest of the summer, including coaching stints w/USAT and USAC for some junior development camps and races. A family trip to the cape for a week...and another few days in Placid to spectate and cheer on my peeps.

If you are in town that weekend...find me! Red Sox'll know it.

Train well folks.
