Big delta right when I walked in the door this morning.

Last day of the horse show. gonna be stupid hot again. I have a feeling that we will be done earlier than planned. Most of the folks in the temporary show barns cleared out last night. early works for me, I charge a flat fee.
back to caffeinating myself, carry on
Early ride delayed because of busted chainring. Gonna try in the evening again.
Going to take Mariko and Yuna on an easy trail ride. Yuna’s bike is a single speed (belt drive!) so we will stick to the near-flat section.
You ever ride south of Boston? Moving down there in 2 months and all I know is the northern side. Still trying to establish where my new stomping grounds will be.
Happy Sunday, cupcakes! Olympic triathlon yesterday went well. I had two goals, really: Average 20 mph on the bike and get through the race without further injuring my gimpy right leg. I was successful on the latter but not the former. 24 mile bike course with 2000' of climbing all in the second half. So halfway through the bike I was hauling ass with a 23.6 mph avg, then gave it all back the second half when the hills hit and finished with a 19.2 avg. Still a solid bike ride and I was not passed by a single rider...I counted 30 that I passed. The run was a short 5.5 miles (should be 10K) but I was fine with that. I took it easy on the run and ran an even 8:00 pace. 500' of uphill...that is a damn hilly run course. I finished 28th overall out of I am guessing 150 or so (still no results posted). 6th in my age group. Today I feel tired but not injured, which I am very happy about. 5 weeks until my Ironman.
Plenty of good riding on the south shore although I only venture south of the Masspike once in a full moon. That might change with the right motivation though. What town will be your new home?
I think Imma walk into town for some breakfast. BRB.
after all the travels you two have had, all the amazing places you've visited, you land in ... Boston? Boston.
Plenty of riding there. Could have been much worse - like Brockton!
Free housing and family is really the only draw. North America has all kinds of awesome places I could spend time. Luckily, this just a temporary thing.
felt crappy. went for a ride. rode slowly. still feel crappy. yay.
That qualifies as net gain in my book.
Blue Hills, Foxboro, 'Nam, Borderland... @splat
The most amazing dirt turned into eating shit and tumbling on a pile of large square edge rocks.
I actually feel my age right now.
Glad I had knees on, shoulda been wearing more.
Rocks always win.
Yeah Brockton is pretty bad. I have family there. They are all Southie or Uphams Corner transplants. They are all pretty sketchy. Stoughton is not bad...
Just got home from Crested Butte. That's a long ass drive - 5hrs at drive fast speed. Glad I had a book I've been listening to to keep my time filled.
Came back to crying child. Haley being a shithead. FTS.
Did you drive the ////m?
I wish I had. Would have taken at least 30min less just because I could have dashed lined passed people.
I took the Subaru because I needed to shuttle in the car and drive a long dirt road for fishing.
Finally broke the Jamis. Freehub on the old XT hub shit the bed. Then I hit the G out by the Tryon Parking lot a little to fast. The chainstay poked me in the leg on the way out. There is a tiny little root you can pop and land on the crest. It happened there. I walked backed to the car. I bought that frame in 1994. I still cannot ride a wheelie... I am planning to integrate the parts into my Bridgestone. The folks hitting the dirt Jumps by the apartments where drinking beer and cooking hotdogs. They offered me a hotdog and beer when they seen my broken bike. I was touched by their sentiment. It was very nice of them.
Went on one of them mountain bike rides. First ride since the injury that I just rode instead of doing a lot of thinking about riding while trying to ride. Was a sweltering 70, felt like a solid 72 with humidity.
Not really, just finding ways to not need it. Thumb goes on top of the bars until things get rowdy. Still haven't figured out flatter technical stuff that requires weight on the front.
Was just riding along in the parking lot...
Went to Thuper Awethum for a low motivation lap. Sign by the fire station read 102°. I don't think that's quite accurate, unless that's in PinkBike degrees.
Pretty much... 43.1669670, -77.5383111
Wifey told me she kept a stash of my OxyContin from a knee surgery a few years ago, she will let me have one or two.
I love her.
Just started going through my emails from the TWO DAYS that I was gone. Can people not look at my schedule before they commit me to things? Or look at the conversations we had when other appointments were rescheduled already, for them, to said dates that they just overbooked? The next three weeks are going to be brutal.
mebbe...but it was mid-90s when I finished my ride at 11:30 this morning...
Keep your illegal narcotics transactions off teh monkeys
May have accidentally done a 15-mile hike today.
May have been a bad idea.
Will probably be worse tomorrow morning or maybe even Tuesday.
So you've got that to look forward to.
I sure fucking hope not.
