Cleveland rocks

Rich, my swim coach, was trying to help me get my hip motion right for a passable dolphin kick. He employed the phrase, "Saturday night with Sally," a visualization as memorable for Rich's deckside demonstration as for its alliteration.

Today, Century Cycles, a terrific small chain of bike shops in the Cleveland area, announces an event with similar alliteration, decidedly different visuals and a whole lot of fun :

Friday Night with Frazz

What: Friday Night with Frazz
When: Friday, March 5, 2010, at 7:00 p.m.

Friday Night With Frazz will include a talk and Q&A by Jef Mallett, book-signing, giveaways, and food and beverages. An original "Frazz" comic strip will be raffled off, with the proceeds to benefit the Cuyahoga Valley National Park Association's TRAILS FOREVER Legacy Fund. Every attendee will receive a free raffle ticket for the rest of the giveaways, which will include Mallett's drawings from the evening's talk, copies of Trizophrenia: Inside the Minds of a Triathlete, and bicycling products from Century Cycles and other sponsors.

Loved that comic when I read it today!! I can't tell you how many times I've used "I met my goals" (which yes, usually meant I was last).

BTW - The Cleveland event sounds awesome.

Lord how I miss C&H (am 43 and still have all the books which I will pass onto my son). I will say that Frazz is my only can't miss comic these days. I also note that the Fat Cyclist has agreed to do a Triathlon for which is another of my regular reads...

He raises a lot of money for cancer (which sucks by the way - cancer, not the money raising).

My list of excuses for not trying triathlon becomes smaller and smaller...I can run, I can bike, I can not sink...

Keep up the great work..
