Pro athlete OR computer nerd?

I got my stitches out of my back yesterday and that should be IT. I am crossing my fingers that I don't have to go back to the clinic anytime soon since I have become a frequent flyer. I still have to finish off the 2nd round of antibiotics though and am hoping this round will actually do the trick this time. Otherwise I am going to have to enter the land of the sick again at the clinic. Not a good land to be in when training.

So in yoga today the lady asked us who works on computers for a living and I found myself raising my hand while wondering why my hand was going up. But it is amazing how much time you spend on the computer as a so called professional athlete.....inputting stuff into your training diary, downloading info, uploading info, registering, planning logistics for the next race trip, emailing everyone (no, not just fun emails believe it or not), along with a bunch of other stuff.

I do spend a bunch of time on the computer it seems and I know I have had discussions with other pro women in the same boat. It's kind of a crazy sport and life that way but I guess it's essentially an at home business. Alright enough babble. Nighty night.

Do computer nerds clean laptops by spilling coffee in them?

See....I told you I was on the computer all the time. Thanks for reminding me of that spendy incident. Whew - that sucked bad!
