It is been a while...
What a challenge to find some time to update the blog or to check my email... Clot Buster Junior is definitely a handful but one that we don't mind at all. He is doing something new every day and it is simply amazing to see it all taking place right in front of our eyes.What is it about grand-parents and their connection to their grand-child? I cannot believe the incredible love displayed by my parents while the visited us for the last 10 days. You had to see it to believe how radiant their faces were every time they got to hold little Clot Buster Junior. I did not realize this until the very end of their visit but between my dad, Clot Buster Junior, and I we had 3 generations of Varga's under the same roof. That was/is incredible.IT IS TOUR TIME my friends! Last week I found a new appreciation for what the Tour riders go through. You see last week since my parents were in town I decided to take half-day vacations every day. This allowed me to car pool in with Tom but then ride home and get my workout out of the way so that I could hang out with my parents that much more. So, every day last week I got to work in the AM and by 11:30AM I was riding my 20 to 25 Miles home. I was not just cruising home I was riding hard just so that I could make good time and really take advantage of the effort. The first day it did not feel bad but every day there after I was hurting that much more as I made way home. So, if you really break it down in a given day I did a quarter of what Tour riders do on a given stage and I only did it for 5 days, the tour riders go out there and do it for 3 weeks! So, although my 94 Miles for the past week were impressive to me I am in awe as to what those professional bike riders go through during the Tour.
PLEASE DON'T FORGET that coming up on August 9th and 10th we will have the 2nd ANNUAL STOP THE CLOT RAFFLE at the Greater Cleveland Triathlon. We are having a number of great prizes to give out so if you happen to be in the area for the race please stop by the polka-dot tent and get your tickets! The more you buy the better are your chances to score some great gear!!!
Thanks for reading,
