Woot! Congrats Eric!<br><br>
It's worth far more than the cash as a lifestyle change. I'm sure she'll recognize that!<br><br>
If not - well, just forgo your birthday prezzies this year.<br><br>
Well done.<br><br>

So which race? That link brings up a bunch of races 2 years old!?! Anyhow, way to go! I gets in your blood, let me tell you. I think about triathlon way more than a person should. Especially in January in Colorado!

Yahoo!! Good for you! What a great way to start the year. As Thor keeps telling me, the goal is to finish with a smile and have fun.

Yeah, but he's a fookin' nut. I say the goal is to finish thiiiiiiis close to puking, then 10 or 15 minutes later find your smile and realize you actually enjoyed that.

Which makes <i>you</i> a fookin' nut since you enjoy being miserable and all.<br><br>
It's a slippery slope Eric but one that I hope gets in your blood. Pretty soon, you'll be as crazy as the rest of us.

woohoo eric - congrats!!!<br><br>
I'm glad this isn't a trail race - envirosports might screw that up (sorry, personal experience popping up there <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">) Seriously, I've heard this was a pretty nice race. I did a little research and found this report on the course, so hopefully this might be helpful to you<br><br><a href="http://www.portlandfit.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=936&pid=4416&mode=threaded&start=#entry4416" target="_blank">Napa Valley HIM RR</a><br><br>
edited to add - I must've clicked the first(old) linkie; I thought to myself, "wow, you're doing an HIM for your firstie?!" Anyway, the RR might give you an idea of what's in store anyhoo

congrats!<br><br>
Also, word of advice from one married man to another... best to tell DW "before" registering if it is "shared" money. Both from schedule and money perspectives. Surprises later... they just don't seem to work well! Buddy of mine always finds if he spends a "surprise" $100 she spends $200 later! OUCH! Now THAT is an expensive race!! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
You're gonna have a blast, enjoy the journey!
