Insomnia Log

This is what keeps me awake at night???

Who needs sleep? (well you’re never gonna get it)
Who needs sleep? (tell me what’s that for)
Who needs sleep? (be happy with what you’re getting,
There’s a guy who’s been awake since the second world war)

Attracting Attention Is Not Always Good

Paul Brekus of Denver wants to ride his antique high wheeler bike in the 5430 Sprint Triathlon on June 18, to attract attention to the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Therapy Development Foundation. Race director Barry Siff has shot down the idea.

I say kudos to Barry! I plan on being in the race, and the last thing that is needed is a bike that is hard to control and doesn't even have a full complement of brakes. In fact, Brekus has admitted to several hospital visits from falling off his bike. Not only is this bike and rider prone to accidents, this particular race is targeted partly to beginner triathletes. A very bad mix indeed.

Barry, as he should, is focusing on the safety of the people participating. This is his number one concern. Keep up the good work!
