Going Off Course - Rochester triathlete Joanna Hall admits to having OCD tendencies, which is a psychological deal having to do with stuff like obsessions and compulsions and disorders. No, she doesn't wash her hands 150 times a day, nor is she afraid to step on sidewalk cracks even though doing so is never a good idea, especially if you love your mother.

Shiny New Bike
A triathlete was walking around in town one day when his friend, another triathlete, rode up on an incredible shiny new bike. The first chap was stunned and asked, "Where did you get such a fantastic bike?" The friend replied, "Well, yesterday I was out running in the forest just minding my own business when this beautiful woman rode up to me on this bike. She threw the bike to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want!" The first chap nodded approvingly, "Good choice. The clothes probably wouldn't have fitted you anyway."...
