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)

A Bad Week for Retired Pro Triathletes

First, Dave Scott was struck by a car while cycling less than a mile from here. The driver, who was ticketed, made an illegal U-turn in front of "The Man" as he was coming down a hill, causing the collision. Dave ended up with a broken finger and wrist, and either a broken or dislocated shoulder, depending on reports. Get well soon, Dave!

Then, Steve Larsen, the road/mountain/cross cycling icon who also made a big splash in the big race on the Big Island when he "dabbled" in the sport of triathlon, died suddenly and unexpectedly during a track workout. The initial reports pointed to a heart attack but the autopsy made a virus the primary suspect. Steve, I hope wherever you are there are miles and miles of great riding.

They say bad things happen in threes. I hope we don't hear about a shark attack on another former pro in the next few days.
