The Fire Fighter

Saturday, May 30th, 2009

Well, I sent my entry to Roth to the World Championships of Fire Fighters…

IF YOU THINK, that I lost my brain- well, you are right.

The computer accepted my application form, but it caught the eyes of the organizers, wow, we have a very fast Fire Fighter lady with a PB of 8:47….they asked me again, Erika, are you sure?

IF YOU THINK, that I lost my confidence and gave up my pro status and signed up to be fire fighter- well, you are ALMOST right…

Before the fire fighters would shit their pants, sorry…their skirt, we fixed the application form and I am officially in the elite field!

Well, I overlooked the application form…who ever look at the head line….?!

But this story is only the top of the ice-mountain….

It started some when 2 days after Valentine day, at 10 p.m. in the Philippines-when a certain some one said:

“Let’s jump into the pool”-but it was empty….

When a smart lady like me, lost her head- (cherche le jaune homme) look for a guy!

Since that pool session, I making mistake after mistake and while I am cleaning up the mess, I make two more. Like a chain reaction….but every chain has an end.

Let’s wait for HAPPY END!

Austria 70.3 odds

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

By Grumpy

 

Men:

 

Massimo Cigana (ITA) :15-1

Last year winner Cigana proved no other significant race results last year.

This year he will face extra challenges. Can he repeat his win again? I do not think so-

in my agenda he has no chance anymore (with me) … L

 

Chris McCormack (AUS) : 3-1

1 times Hawaii winner, all around athlete. Can he climb well with his all round shape?

Did he find time and energy between traveling and competing races all around the globe this season?

Expect him playing the game and go for it!

 

Marino Vanhoenacker (BEL) : 2-1

 

The tall Belgian would be the hardest competition for our Stephen Bayliss, in the skinniest legs category.

Do not be deceived by the fragile sticks, the former duathlete learnt to swim and brought his killer bike and run leg into the world of long distance triathlons. Can he take on Macca? I hope so.

He is my favorite to win.

 

Jozsef Major (HUN) : 9-1

The best Hungarian this year improved his weaknesses, both on swim and bike. Expect him have a bath-giving some advantage for the big guns- then chasing down the filed. His small frame could be a weapon in this hilly course.

Joe, make Hungary proud!

James Cunnama (RSA): 12-1

With similar strengths like Major -against their opposite body built- with a great courage, he can run his way up into top 5. No pressure on you boy, but if you do not make it, you will ride till Lesyin….I could bring the luggage…

Rip it James!

 

Females:

Gina Ferguson (NZL): 4-1

This girl has a multi talent. While she is “all round” triathlete with no weaknesses, she also has brain between her ears: a pro violin player, ex match teacher!

Expect her making a duo with Lucie Zelenkova on the bike and go for it on the run.

Watch out girls- this lady won her last 3 iron distance races- she will play your tunes J

 

Lucie Zelenkova (CZE): 4-1

Our “Big Smile” Lucie moved to South Africa to train among lions. A cat lover.

Her win at South-Africa 70.3 and IM with course record is deceiving….achieved in home-courses, she is suspected knowing the shorter way ;-)

Expect her swimming away from fellow girls on the feet of the guys, then leading the field on the bike. Since she put on the pink suit she developed an annoying habit : after her killer swim-bike combo she tends to forget herself in the front and take it home….

 

Tamara Kozulina (UKR): 6-1

Another blond eastern block girl.

After winning Strongman in Japan she is back in Europe and action. Let’s hope she still suffering from jet lag ;-)

 

Sandra Wallenhorst (GER) : 4-1

Last year’s biggest surprise is a Mom of 2 years old boy!

After finishing 3rd in St.Polten (the Van Vlerken-Csomor duo let her break away on the bike not knowing who is this girl, then they regret it) she won Klagenfurt with world’s third fastest iron distance time. (The second belong to Csomor, the difference is only 20 seconds. Well known fact that Klagenfurt course is “faster” then Roth course)

On Hawaii with a blistering running she finished 3rd.

Expect her making a chasing duo with Csomor on the bike, better to hurry up girls: only the wines getting better with age ;-)

 

Erika Csomor (HUN): 5-1

Winner of this race in 2007 (with a 1:18 half marathon), second in 2008 to the fastest iron distance lady, she is only missing the bronze from the collection. She does not want to collect it…

She started her season with plenty of bad lucks.

Finally she recovered from her swine flu, released her bike from the intensive care (now it is bomb proof) so no more excuses Miss Coco, it is time to show something…

Expect her leaving the water wet and chasing hard the leaders with Sandra in her wing.

There is no fairy tale, the fastest runner will win.

Certainly, she is MY favorite…. J

Happy Mother’s day

Sunday, May 17th, 2009

My problems started when someone in my hometown established a private zoo park, with lions. (kind of “please, no visitors, but we accept donations” type)

So far my Mom had the biggest “zoo park” on the other side of the town, but she was only sporting homeless animals.

Once, the colleague came to her with a “win-win” business offer regarding the animals’ feeding problem. We can take this day as the beginning of the cold war.

My problems continued, when last Sunday I visited my Mom and popped the question:

-What would you like to have for Mother’s day?

(Here I grabbed the chair under me- usually these kind of questions tend to run into drama. For example, last Xmas, my Mom’s wish was a horse for her. While she poured alligator tears, she described how a mean and heartless gipsy horse mafia captured and tortured this poor beast. I did not need much, I was ready to buy that horse for her. So I asked how much is it? She said it is NOT THE PRICE….but the owners did not want to sell it…..)

-Tiger. White one, if possible….

(Aha. The concurrency has lion, so she wants tiger. I did not think it would be a good idea anyway, as my Mom is devoted fan of cage-free animal keeping)

-Where the hell from could I get one for you????!!!!

(Luckily I was holding myself to the chair)

-From the Philippines! –came the triumphant answer (with all her little heart’s bitterness, leaving her all alone while I was having fun in the jungle)

-Mom, there are no tigers in the Philippines….( at least I did not see any )

-No? Then what they have?

(NO, she can not want any of THOSE monkeys!!!)

-Water buffalos!

(for my biggest dismay I saw her face shining up)

-How much are THEY cost?

(I just knew the answer. Not a long time ago, Jonnyo asked the same from Arnel in the van going to the airport. We called those beasts “Wabballos”)

-It is about same, like a pinoy motorbike would cost….

-But how much a pinoy motorbike?

(she is just like her dogs- if she grabbed it, she will not let it go…)

-Well it is about one quarter of the prize of my brand new Cervelo P3……

(she forgot her mouth open)

We dropped the question, but I noticed her stealing amorous glances at my bike from the corner of her eyes, secretly she even caressed it…..

She is so transparent. I just know, she is turning an idea in her little silly head….

It is still not too late to save your bike, grab a tiger and visit your Mom, any Sunday will do it…..

Good bye my love

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

So we broke up finally.

When it started it was so exciting…like two aliens of different planets meet. Plenty of secrets to discover or hide….the time was flying by… just to realize later it was a little mismatching.

He loves yellow cheese, me the white one. He loves the pizza thick, me thin. He prefer rice, me pasta. He is an early guy, me an owl. Movies?! He has taste for silly movies, I go for something interesting.

For him it is a lake what is a swimming pool for me.

He is a “wannabe” guy. Me? Certainly a serious one.

Oh, and those freaking motorbikes. Always the motorbikes…

Well, time went by, it is a time for separation. A big ocean between us.

We both have unfinished businesses: for me on the old continent, for him on the new one.

It was fun with you, I will miss you Brad…..
