"Where's the kickstand?"

Marvin & meAfter dropping off a check for my vocal class in South Pasadena, I headed over to the Rose Bowl with my running shoes in tow. Marvin sent me an email invite to check out a special meeting held by his Pasadena Triathlon Club about a mentoring program for those interested in racing an Olympic-distance triathlon.

Knowing myself, I paid more attention to the last part of the email about a nice workout afterward. I figured it would be a simple 5K run around the famous stadium with Marvin and his crew of triathletes. Fast, fun, and a good change of scenery from the 'hoods of MPK.

It's when I parked that I saw my discipler make ready not one, but TWO bikes. Then I heard, "Hey, when's the last time you rode a bike?"

This wasn't going to be a walk in the park (pun intended).

Seven circular-motion and three pavement-pounding miles later...everything south of the border hurts.

It still feels kinda good though. =)
