Haight and I met Todd up in Wisconsin for a well-run bike ride. Did you know Wisconsin had hills??? Well, we conquered them!!
It was my first date with "Iris" and she was oh so kind to me. And now I have to say, It's soooo all about the bike! I couldn't believe how smooth it felt, how quick I was going, how much better my legs worked when using all the muscles due to clipless pedals. I was going to do the 30-mile ride, but at the pit stop at 15 miles I felt so good that I went on for the 50-miler. Todd was the perfect gentleman to come along and keep me company!
I was surprised we didnt see any other bikers along that path. The roads all to ourselves!! Well, except for the idiot driver that tried to pass me on the left as I was turning and properly signaling left! Car tires screeched et al! Damn those car drivers that don't share the road. We also passed a swarm of Hells Angels riders, kinda scarey to ride past them as they vroom-vroom their engines. I gave them all the peace sign, and most gave it back (I know, I know--I'm queer!)
I also did an 8-mile run on Saturday. It was pouring rain when I woke up, but a runner is a runner in all weather, so I braved the 40-min drive to my running group and took off. Ran with three other gals, two eventually took off faster. I wanted to do 10-miles but I was soaked to the core! I came home and napped and then went for my weekly massage with Beast Woman. Her damn cervical cancer has returned and she's getting it all scraped out on Tuesday--God damn that friggin cancer bug--I want to see it wiped out before my days are over. Meanwhile, my hair grows longer, the least I can do is donate the 11" required for cancer victims. She's been in my prayers these last few days.
