It's raining, it's pouring!!  And supposed to continue most of the day, I'm thinking this will be a sit at home and curl up with a good book kind of a day, maybe a nap later! 

Some very sad news in our area... a local cop was killed in the line of duty on Saturday night and he was the husband of a girl that taught kindergarten at my school a couple of years ago, we got friendly when we discovered we were both runners.  She has 2 kids the same ages as my grandkids.  I was all excited about my race when I saw the news on Facebook, my heart goes out to here, soooo damned sad, and all because of some POS crackhead who wasn't worth it.  The POS was shot dead, but that is no consolation....

REST DAY!!  And travel day...  We are heading out after lunch sometime to the race site.  Going to pick up our packets and drive the bike route and possibly the run route too.  'm really excited to finally be racing, not so sure about hubby.  I think he'll surprise himself because he expects to be DFL.  So this morning I gots to get all my stuff together and type up some directions for my daughter to come take care of the dogs overnight... thanks to all that have already wished me luck!!

Nice and easy OWS with a friend. Water felt great, no current, no chop, just beautiful!

Finally a good run! Sooo close to getting back into the 10 minutes, and that was with the Adidas shoes and not the Newtons. So sweaty though... but NO walking, whoo hoo!! The Hildebeast is finally coming back!!

Nice easy ride with a slower friend... took one of my favorite loops the OTHER way, nice change of pace! Very humid and sweaty, but a good ride. Almost done with training before the race, doing a very easy OWS tomorrow morning (I was invited, couldn't pass on the opportunity!), and a rest day on Saturday.

Legs were a little fatigued to start and it is oh so muggy out there. HR started good, but got up more than I wanted after a mile or so, so added in some run/walk to bring it down. Even with the walking my pace is finally getting a little faster, yea me!

Totally awesome ride!! Rode with Tammy Tucker who is killing it on the bike lately, so she pushed me to work a good bit harder, enough that I FINALLY broke over the 16 mph barrier, and on a long ride at that!! We were out on totally rural roads, periods of open sunshine, and lots of under the trees. Lots of wildlife too, luckily none threatening, even the dogs were friendly today! We saw a big deer, and a dead one, squirrels, horses, a pen of goats (I spoke to them in their language, who knew I was the Goat Whisperer? They spoke back!), a couple of bunnies, and a VERY fast lizard who thankfully ran across the road fast enough that Tammy didn't gush him! And thankfully NO snakes!

I put a shorter stem on my bike yesterday, but I still have a bit of tweaking to do, AND I need to build a Garmin mount.... if I mount the quick release to the stem I have no access to the buttons on the side, so it looks like I need some PVC, some zip ties and some electric tape and hopefully it will come out somewhat professional looking!
