More publicity rides

Now ain't that the truth.

What do you say to an Olympian?

If Michellie Jones was willing to ride in the rain among unfamiliar wheels, I could not miss the opportunity to attempt conversation. I went blank as I rode along side her, so I found a variant of weather small talk: "So, what type of weather do you compete best in?" thinking that she would start trash talking humidity or sub-freezing temps. Michellie said, "I like it all, I do well in anything." She sure told me. Certainly her resume would agree, I thought.

"Wow, great, so where is your next triathlon?" I asked, hoping to talk about the weather in whatever location that would be. "San Diego in May," she said. Weather in San Diego--hmm, obviously this conversation was finished.

I am grateful that Charles, David and Julie hosted Michellie. What a great ride.
