Because I Need to Say Something

First of all I completely forgot to mention that I met Bex a couple weeks ago. We had drinks and the most delicious Brie and pear quesedilla in the world. Oh how i love living in California with all this great food and how I love meeting my internet friends, not necessarily in that order but both at once is a real bonus.

Second of all thanks for the well wishes on my neck. It started feeling better Saturday so I rode on Sunday (even though I spent 1 hour in the trainer on Saturday). This is elevation map of the ride. It looks so completely crazy!

I let the hill win for a little bit on the way back. It’s hard to see from that elevation map but there is a sharp hill with a summit that falls along a general incline. I gave it up about 60 feet from the top and at the time it seemed like a total defeat but overall it was but a blip in a pretty tough ride. The coolest part about this ride is that I went with a woman from my race club who just needed to find a riding partner for a 5 hour training ride for her next HIM. It was a huge win/win for both of us to find each other because I just needed to get out there. I went 3 hours to her 5 but we both had a great time. All hail terra firma race clubs and email lists!

Third of all I spent hours yesterday glued to IronmanLive watching people cross the finish. A great race was had by some and a race that resulted in a painful but successful finish was had by others but even that is a great race. Congratulations to everyone who got out there and toed the line.

I’ll try to get back to being interesting soon.

    I’m glad you’re feeling better! And perhaps we could go for a bike ride next time I’m in your neck of the woods, although I’ll be much slower than you.

    too respectable lookin’ to be bloggers.
    glad i’m behind. i don’t like hearing about sore bits. i hope the pears and brie did it for the neck. i think warm brie slathered on a neck would loosen any muscle.
