Alderwood REI is next, on Tuesday, Oct. 23. (Next week!) I'd love to see you there!
Wanted to mention why I didn't end up racing last Sunday's Klicks Padden Duathlon as planned. When I woke that morning to howling 30 to 40 m.p.h. winds--the first real windstorm of the season--it was pretty much a no-brainer: I ain't racin' on them heavily forested back trails at Lake Padden. I've already been hit by one falling tree and ended up in the ER sporting a bloody goatee (see below); I didn't need a repeat performance. Read about that here.
