Thanks Steve!

First, this post is almost totally silly, and almost not at all triathlon related. 

Now, In this world, it's all about who you know. 

Need to draw attention to a little fundraising event? How about a re-tweet from the guy who founded the fund you're helping, and just so happens to also be the CEO of LIVESTRONG. 

Want to get people more interested in your prizes? Manage to get Apple to release their newest version of their visionary product with a TON of new features right as you give away a giftcard to help pay for it.

Alright, I admit, I didn't have any sway over Apple's timing of the announcement of the iPad2, but you gotta give me props for awesomely good timing. 

And with all the new features of the iPad2 (9x more powerful, lighter, thinner, new case, a bunch of other new features all at the same price), you gotta think Mr. Jobs was really just wanting to make sure there was something really good out there for the raffle winner to buy with the Apple gift card.

Now I just have to figure out a way to get myself an iPad2.


- 30 minutes on the bike last night. My right thigh is sore, so it wasnt a super hard workout, but something between a spin and decent resistance.
