Last night I was reading some stuff from my A.A. Milne collection and it really got me going. Ironman Wisconsin is almost here and I am about to leave for Madison. Anyway, the following are some quotes from pooh that lit a fire in my belly that burns brighter than Bon Jovi's gorgeous smile.

"I'm so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and was in bed before the room was dark."- Pooh taunting rabbit before both competed in Ironman

"If you even dream of beating me you'd better wake up and apologize. "- goading piglet before a local triathlon

"I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals."- Pooh hopped up on a slew of different uppers and downers.

I am getting pumped for this race.

Stay Tuned.

Ha, your posts always crack me up. LIsten, stay cool out there, mentally and physically, and soak up every second of the experience. You only get one first time, so make it matter BIG. Have a fantastic race, little brother!

Good stuff! And thank you for the referrence to Bon Jovi. He is the BEST! (of course he's my age, and I grew up on his music, and have been to a zillion of his concert, and just might sleep with him if given a chance,.......and the list goes on)

I feel like you are quite blasphemous in how you treat Pooh. I question your love for him, and by association, honey.

Good luck at IM and I expect updates.
