Do you mind the cool weather?

The temperature is dropping, and that is fine with me. I love summer but I also love winter, spring and fall. This time of year, the weather is brisk (although it was 70 degrees yesterday). Today it was 39 degrees when I got home from the pool. Wet hair and 39 degrees = cold! It is also getting dark at about 2 pm in the afternoon and it has totally messed up the "babies" routine. Brick thinks it would be super to eat dinner at 4:30 pm and then go to bed around 5:30. That would be fine if it didn't mean that he was ready to get up at 4:30 am. I like to run early in the morning but not that early! I have been giving them a snack at 5:00 pm to tide them over till dinner. Here is Brick working on a hickory smoked bone filled with peanut butter. (An ideal doggy recovery food.)

On a non-triathlon related note...

Mr KT raked the entire yard and swept off the driveway about 4 pm on Saturday.
These pictures were taken on Sunday morning. Yeah, and our leaves are falling on our neighbor's yards on both side. Good thing we rent, right?

I'm down with cold weather... I'm just not down with cold AND wet! Ya know... like the kind of weather we have in Eugene from October thru March? Seriously. Us skinny guys suffer during this season!

Do you ever call Brick "Super Dog"? Looks very comfortable in that position!

I sometimes sleep like your dog in that second image. And I HATE it when it gets cold.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
