IMWI course ride. Started in the rain, continued in the wind. Good times! Rode from Olin Turnville so got almost the whole course. A couple extra miles backtracking on the course to look for the wife, who I later found out had missed a turn heading into Verona...

Had some highs and lows on this ride but definitely feel ready for the bike. Speed was lower than I could have done because I coasted quite a bit waiting for peeps.

Huge thanks to the Tri Wis peeps for supporting the ride. Nice to have snacks and drinks along the way!

    I may have mentioned it before, but it is worth repeating.  I love riding my bike.  Yesterday I got home from work and was crabby.  Had planned on swimming but the idea of fighting with a wet suit and putting my face in the water was not appealing.  Cycling, however, sounded like some good therapy to distance myself from work.

    Met up with Casey and Greg, a couple of the Tri Wis guys I regularly ride with, and headed out despite storms on the radar.  Went north almost to Thiensville when it started raining pretty good.  Consulted Greg's iPhone under a tree to confirm we were riding into what appeared to be a radish on the radar (we interpreted that to be the worst of the storms) so headed back to the north shore.  We were out of the rain but still surrounded by crap and looking to spend some more time on the bike.  So, we dropped down Beach Road to Lake Michigan and rode end to along the lake oogling the mansions before coming back up the hill and heading toward home.  It was darketey dark and just starting to rain again by the time I rolled up to the house.  Quick change and then headed to Hooligans for some nachos and a burger and beer.  Fantastic Monday night.  Casey is moving to Berkeley this week to go back to school for his JD and masters of public policy.  Gonna miss that guy.  He's entertaining people.

    Hitting up the Brewers game tonight with about 30 peeps to send Casey off to Cali with a bang.  We'll be the drunk obnoxious ones in the cheap seats with nary a clue as to what is actually going on in the game.

    Crappy ass lunchtime run. Under caloried.

    Rough day for Fatty.

    I hate cancer.  I can relate to his post today.  When my dad was dying we used a swab to wet his mouth.  One of the last things he said to me was suggesting that I take the print of the Mona Lisa that hangs on the mantle in the living room, turn it sideways, and shake it.  He's been gone over nine years and I still ponder that request.  I've never actually done what he asked.  Maybe I should.
