The Calm After The Storm

I've endured my 16th fourth of July holiday extravaganza at the store. It cut into my ride time a little last week (I only clocked three days in the saddle); and while I'd like to think of it as extra recovery time after the last race, my legs don't feel a whole lot better than they did the day after the Lumberjack. It must have something to do with running around like a chicken with it's head cut off and carrying heavy boxes to and fro. Anyway, I got back in the saddle yesterday. I rode the old commuter in to work at 6:30 yesterday morning, and it actually felt really good. Traffic was light at that hour, and I saw an abundance of wildlife on my trip in. After work I needed to run some errands in Petoskey, and so I rode my bike around the bay. I hit up the hearing aid lady, and found out that my unit is fu**ed. On the upside, I do carry a rider on my homeowners policy for it so I'm not out the $1200 for the new one. Then I stopped at the RiteAid for a few odds and ends. My last stop was the AT&T store for some new headphones. By the time I rolled up the driveway just before six, I estimate my days mileage at a hair under forty miles (for free). Today I'll be driving (boo) south to continue my NCT exploration along the Jordan River Valley. Riding new trails is fun. WNR @ Boyne tomorrow. See you there.

Where and when is the next race? You should post your race schedule, so I can follow your results from arizona.
