I'm now old, but I have something new ... stoked!

Carrie and I are now the "2 Live Crew" on the "Axl Rows" squad.

Or are we Milli Vanilli?

I grew up in the 80s. Shut up.

That's right - we are going to learn how to "crew" or "row". Whatever they call it.

Starting September 9th and 10th through October 26th, Tempe Town Lake will host a 7-week rowing league that introduces rowing to new participants, teaches the basics of the sport, and allows rowers to show off their skills in a league championship regatta (on October 26th).

It's two nights per week for the seven weeks. It will be a good shift in the workout routine. This is another one of those things that I've always wanted to try -- so here we go.

The recovery from the Pikes Peak Ascent went well. I also turned 40 years old on the 23rd. The recovery from my 40th birthday "calorie fest" was a little tougher than the Pikes recovery. I now remember EXACTLY why I changed my diet habits. I hadn't really pigged out like that in a couple of years. Sure, I have not made ALL the best diet choices along the way ... but this was near gorging. Mass quantities of nachos and cookies do not make for a fun 24 hours.
