Sunday Evening Festivities with the Greenfield Boys

Sunday evenings are always a time of fun, music, and nudity in the Greenfield home.

We begin with pony-riding...

Then sing-along songs...

And a bit of music lessons...

...then finish with the grand finale: a bare buns race to the bathtub.

After all this excitement, it's time to fall asleep, preferably on an animal skin (please don't sue me, PETA).

A Royal Puppet Christmas

Yeah, yeah, I know. Another clip that has nothing to do with triathlon. But it's Christmas, so I'm allowed.

Included in the video of my children's first Christmas:

-Dogs eating unicorns

-A bear with ADD and a sword

-A congested elephant

-And much, much more...

Cuatro semanas lejos

Ironman 70.3 in Pucon, Chile is just 4 weeks away!

I am fit, I am stoked, and I am ready to rock the parade in South America. Speaking from experience, I can tell you that to feel this way a whole month out is a good thing. I've even brushed up on my Spanish - I'm officially on my 50th lesson tomorrow! That's "Quintieth", I think.

Muy bien. Jessa, the Boyz, and I leave for Miami on Jan 7, then it's off to Chile via Peru on Jan 13.

Anyways, my official pre-race pump-me-up song is Environmental Product by Brisk & Vagabond.

The Greenfield Boys

And now something that has absolutely nothing to do with triathlon adventures, but is much, much better...

Spinning with Seuss

A) That is GU Vanilla Flavor Gel that I am eating. The first gel was planned. The second gel was an afterthought, after realizing that it was living on my aerobar pad.

B) The background audio is "Horton Hears a Who".

C) I'm not sure what my phrase at the end of the video actually means. Turn the camera off, I guess.

Incidentally, I'm getting into fantastic shape for Pucon 70.3 coming up in mid-January 2009 - slamming down some mad indoor training rides and hill run repeats up the kazoo. I leave for Miami on Jan 7 for a week of acclimatization, then it's off to South America for a week-and-a-half.

Somehow, the knee is flawless, and each week I lay down more armor onto the knees and hips with fire hydrants, hip hikes, Gymstick leg swings, single leg deadlifts, single leg squats, and a host of other moves that you can see by clicking here.

Look out, Chile...

P.S. After this ride, I showered. The only towels in the bathroom were little River and Terran's ducky towels.
