No Tour de France in my Future!

Well, I will NOT be competing in the Tour de France. And no it's not because I can't keep up with the "C" group of the local bike club. I am positive with a few weeks of riding I could even lead the C group and possibly hang on the wheels of the B group.

Why can't I ride in the Tour?

Let me give you a hint, It's Not about the Bike. The San Francisco Giants just just called and they want me to fill Barry's shoes. That right, I'm on steroids! The Doctor prescribed them and I can feel the shirts getting tighter already! Think I can hit 756 home runs in 5 days? I hope so, cause that's how long the prescription lasts.

Course there is a difference between me and Barry. I am freely admitting that I am on steroids.
There is a difference between me and Lance Armstrong. I am freely admitting that I am on steroids.
There is a difference between me and Roger Clemens. I am freely admitting that I am on steroids, and he's ugly!

Take Care of the Feet Andyman

Taipei: Taiwan’s leading female ultra-marathon runner has had to have both legs amputated after blisters on her foot developed into an infection, press reports said Tuesday.
Chiu Shu-jung, 51, remains in a coma in a French hospital following the amputation of both her legs, the China Times daily said.
Chiu, 51, a mother of two and a clerk at the China Steel Corp, took part in the annual 1,500-km ultra-marathon race, La Trans Gaule from August 13-31.
On the 16th day of the 18-day race from Roscoff in north-western France to Gruissan-Plage on the Mediterranean, blisters on Chiu’s left foot broke. However, she continued to run and finished 17th of the 44 runners to complete the race.
Chiu was diagnosed with septicaemia, a potentially life-threatening infection, and was flown by helicopter to a hospital in Montpellier.
Doctors removed her left leg and the sole of her right foot on August 31, and amputated her right leg on September 1 to stop the infection from spreading.
Chiu, nicknamed “ultra-marathon mama”, had been scheduled to join an ultra-marathon event in South Korea after the race in France.

Well, ok, there's a big downer! But was she on Steroids as I am freely admitting that I am?

Ah, ha! I'll go as natural as Sy Sperlings hair, how about that?

It's going to take me awhile to get that video out of my head. About mid-way through, I was feeling like these passengers.

A real ultramarathoner would have amputated his own feet ...

Chicks dig muscles...but an odd number of feet may be a turn-off.

Actually, feet are usually NOT the first thing that I notice about a guy...

It is usually the second thing . . .
