Leapin’ Lizards!

It’s the leap year today. I think that on a leap year we can take the opportunity to partake in any adventure we choose.  I decided to take up my new adventure, or 2, … okay maybe 3. I already tried sailing.  Now I have mixed emotions about starting that adventure again.  However I think I will try gardening. It will calm me down and it’s productive. I’ll also give kayaking a try. I need as much exercise and physical activity as I can get. And is this summer I will run a triathlon!!!

Yes these are three very different pursuits. Yet, they are not diametrically opposed. A triathlon and kayaking will require physical endurance. After I get totally worn out after exercising I can sit in the garden and tend my crops.

Today I just planted some dill in the backyard. I think of that the dill will be very aromatic. I can’t wait to use that in some cooking and in some soups. You can try gardening as well. Just buy some bags of seeds at the 99 cent store. Bury them in your backyard & you’re done! Fun on a budget!

Next saturday I am going kayaking with some friends. I found a cheap deal on groupon To go kayaking in newport beach. Even with out the coupon, Kayaking is fairly inexpensive. Plus you get to spend the day at the ocean!  What could be better are you ask? How about the dana point whale festival? It’ll be happening that weekend as well!

You may be asking yourself why is this guy trying to tell us about triathlons? Are those expensive? Isn’t this blog about free and fun things to do? You are right. Triathlons are historically very expensive to register and run in. My solution is to not pay a single penny. I am starting my own a triathlon. It’s going to be free to join and all are welcome. I’m going to keep my own time, run my own course, and have a really fun time. I will post the course and date of the run later. Once you read as the details and you are thoroughly crazy enough, you can join if you like. Let’s make the rest of the year as fun as possible here in Fountain Valley and beyond!

      When are you coming back to socal? I was thinking about this summer. July sounds good to me. Can you make it then? Try to convince DQ, Long, ML and the rest!

      Either way. I want to do this now!

    It depends on when in the month of July. My brother is getting married at the end of July so the earlier the better. I was going to do an unofficial one where we run/bike by ourselves along Huntington Beach. (Read: FREE!) We can keep our times and we win if we finish. What do you think?
