Saturday: In With A Snot Rocket
Woke up this a.m. to find the B-Man lodged between me and Wifey clutching "Gordon the Choo-Choo". Apparently he woke up in the early a.m. and JoErin brought him into bed with us. Something comforting about waking up and having him in my face going "Daddy... Choo-Chooo... Gordon.... Wreck... Boom ". Oh well enough mush.
So I got my ass up around 7:30 and downed some free bad-ass java one our sales-reps gave me for doing some extra shit for a client of his last week. It was some sort of Jamaican Hairy Nut or Hazel Nut, I couldn't read the writing on the bag. I like to think it was Hazel Nut. Either way the shit rocked.
On my way to my road ride launching pad I went through Wilkinsburg. If you're not familiar with Pittsburgh this is pretty much the high crime area of the 'Burgh. Had to wait for the Wilkinsburg High homecoming parade to go through. Let's just say there were several pimped out cars with spinner hauling some mean ass looking homecoming girls with tatoos. Yikes!
Hard to believe 10 miles into my ride I would reach the complete opposite of Wilkinsburg and be in the middle of "hicksville" laying low to avoid an errant arrow in the ass from a drunk hunter (archery started today).
Got 39 miles/2:08 in. Went with no pack for one of the few times this year on my road bike. What a difference. Felt like I lost 10 lbs.!! Hit a bunch of big ass hills and felt pretty good considering I'm a little under the weather with an allergy or head cold.
Pre-Ordered my Off-Road To Athens DVD yesterday so as to get the free shipping. I CAN NOT WAIT to see this DVD. Order one today!...
Staying in tonight with Wifey. Neither one of us are feeling 100% so I'm gonna make up some Turkey Sausage Whole Wheat Pasta with some super amounts of garlic, red peppers, low fat Mozzerella and Olive Oil. MMmmmmmm. Wash it down with a couple of Pale Ales to get the garlic fuzz off the tongue and then keep an eye to the sky for the Bat Signal. Chick-Chicka-Bow-Bow....
Might hit the road again tomorrow if I'm feeling ok.
Hope you all are getting some miles in.
