Well, the Christmas break is almost here, and there are a few housekeeping items to handle before a few days off.
First and foremost, have a wonderful holiday season. While Nancy and I may debate the reality of a "war on Christmas," I have no problem saying, "Happy Holidays!" The blogosphere is a pretty big place, and I'm sure (hope, at least) you, the readers, represent a fairly diverse set of beliefs. Whatever your beliefs are, enjoy the time with your friends and family, get some rest, and re-energize yourself for the coming year.
As the new year approaches, swing by raceAthlete and see what's new. The newest fully sponsored member of the team going to IM MOO '07 will be selected and announced in the very near future, and you never know when a favorite blogger might be a featured writer. And remember that members can join the raceAthlete forum. It is a wonderful source of information from professional triathletes, age groupers, mechanics, and coaches.
If you are interested in tracking the sponsored raceAthlete team, CycleOps has put up a wonderful page complete with bios, tentative race schedules, and other information.
Finally, remember to get some rest over this break. As triathletes and endurance athletes, we sometimes push ourselves pretty hard. Like a good taper, a bit of rest will go a long way when the serious training starts. And that's as soon as January for some of us.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, joyous everything else, and Happy New Year!
