Monday Night Gravel

At last, a Monday night with no rain --- was able to have the Monday Night Gravel ride that I lead. We had a small but speedy group. Afterwards we hung out talking in the parking lot until mosquitoes came out and cut things short.

Monster Metric (we didn't quite do the metric distance)

Our LBS held their annual ride today with a few twists --- they moved the start from a local park to the elementary school so that they could use the kitchen and dining hall facilities, and went to a system of 3 20-mile loops so that riders could pick and choose what they wanted to do. This worked out great, good times were had by all.

Day started off with finding some unauthorized charges on a credit card I keep just for emergencies. Took a while to get in touch with a real person at Bank of America but was able to resolve the matter quickly once I did.

Then it was off to the Kids' Triathlon at Lincoln Park in Springfield. Steve's granddaughters, Zayli (10) and Eleanor (7) were competing and I helped out at registration, then went to watch them. The girls did great --- they have been taking swimming lessons and are improving. Eleanor is the more athletic of the two and she zipped across the water like a little champion and ended up taking first place in her division.

Had some of Steve's family over for lunch after the tri -- we just ordered Jimmy Johns and put out some sides and had an easy meal. I think we'll do this again in lieu of the usual enormous dinner we usually have. Cleanup was easy and there weren't a lot of leftovers.

All in all, a pretty good day
Did some strength workout stuff today. Other than that, kind of a low-key day. Cleaned the house since we have Steve's family coming over on Saturday.

Road with with Steve, Steve and Larry

Got out for a road ride with Steve and some friends early. The humidity must have been pushing 80% and everyone was just drenched with sweat by the end of the ride. Mowed the grass when we got home and lost of couple more pounds from sweating. Then thunderstorms moved in and cooled things off. Such a strange, rainy summer we are having.
