Happy Birthday to ME!!

I'm ALIVE!! (all animated and jumping around waving arms) Oh HELL YEAH!!

Ran a great RTW 5k this morning! Everyone now knows Tessie on a first-name basis!....We ran a 23:40 not great, not shabby, either....

THEN I packed a cooler with BEER, Gatorade, and a gallon of water and went MOTOCROSSING!

45 laps didn't happen. No how, no way. It's a long track and pretty difficult this morning! I did 25 laps, 2 sets of 10 and one set of 5....Just exhausted! Chugged the whole bottle of Gatorade, dumped water on my head, all the good stuff!

Tomorrow, I'll go run in the forest with Susie's group for 1 lap (6.5 miles), then I THINK I might go scoop up the other 20 laps at the track....It could happen!...Oh HELL YEAH!


Tessie after the run...


Bike maintenance last night, cleaned air filter, clean/lube/adjust chain...


I devised a new method of counting laps, white electrical tape on the crossbar...each lap, stop, remove a tape tag from here and....


....put it here....




Me and my friend, Dave. Cool guy and rides at about the same ability level...GOOD TIMES!

Happy birthday, Evan. I get exhausted just reading your post.

Hey, it's still early. Go take a nap and head back out in the late afternoon.
