I’ve Sold Out.

Yep, I finally did it. I bought an IPod. For all these years, I have thought how ridiculous they are, why are they necessary? We have CD’s, we can play our music, even put it into our computer and chill out while working. But an IPod? So I can be connected to my music while running, cycling, reading, travelling, etc…? Not necessary. But I finally gave in, however I have to admit that my …good gosh, at least 12-year old…Sony radio walkman has served me well! But I am afraid it will have to move over to my new toy. Well, it is actually not a real IPod but a Sansa. Whatever it is, it holds 2,000 songs and they are all to my liking. 🙂

Part of the reason I broke down is that I leave Thursday for Geneva, New York for a race on Saturday. This is an ITU race, draft-legal style format. I figured, what they hey, I have not raced these in about 2-3 years and I used to do only ITU racing. It will be a fun change for once, to actually get to draft on the bike. I have a homestay (whereby nice people open up their homes to allow me to stay! And helps immensely as it saves me 3 nights of a hotel!) and I am looking forward to a lot of Kelly-Time. The race is not until Saturday at 3:00 PM EST, so this gives me a plethora of time to chill out before-hand and get good and nervous! I found myself doing just that the past few days, but then I told myself that, well, this is not ‘my thing’ anymore…I am completely sold on the longer racing! I am so looking forward to racing in Racine, Wisconsin on July 22nd, this will just be a fun little ‘tune-up’.

Now that my bike is packed (yes, a day early), I will continue to download music into my ‘Sansa-Pod’. Gotta take care of all the important stuff, right?

One reply on “I’ve Sold Out.”

Hey Kelly, just happened on your site as I had set it up as a favorite but I always forget about my favorites. Your writings are interesting and with just the right amount of humor to liven up my day…good luck with your race this weekend.
