I thought I was feeling pretty good this morning.  I must've been for the first half mile.  Then it was back to my slogging pace.  I did see 4 bunnies and a bunch of quail.

I ran this race with my wife.  Well, me mostly walked it. 60% humidity.  I'll be drenched for years to come.

22.4 mile bike ride.  Jumped in the pool after.  I feel good now.  My rumperootus was aching during the ride.

27.5 mile bike ride.  I went the Usery Pass route.  In hind sight, my hind end still wasn't ready for this kind of ride, but my butt survived.  I had to stop once going up the big hill.  After that it was a lot easier making it to the top.  I think I'd cut off the circulation in my legs.

If I had only done this run 9 more times, I could've done a marathon.  Except everything hurt.  Anyway, my wife was out walking this morning.  Sometimes when she's walking I don't go running because I'm afraid to leave Emily alone.  Not that she's alone, but everyone is sleeping.  But I knew she'd be sound asleep this morning.  I got to the Floodway and I could see a bright shirt of a lady on the other side along the canal.  I wondered if it was my wife.  The more I ran I could tell that it was not her.  She got to Brown Road before me and she turned around.  I had a feeling I could catch her even though I was going incredibly slow.  It's not like I was trying to catch her.  It just happened.  So I passed her and that was nice.  I ran down to University Drive and headed back to the other side of the Floodway.  Right before I reached Adobe I saw another lady on the Floodway path headed my way.  It was indeed my wife.  So I ran up to her.  We might have kissed a few times.  I won't admit to that.

27.5 mile bike ride.  Pretty close to the same route as last week.  I wanted to ride with the group, but I couldn't get ready in time.  (That means I didn't make a bowel movement yet.)  The group was going to start at 6am at the Park and Ride 5.6 miles from my house.  I finally got out the door at 5:50am.  I didn't think I could make it there even if I drove.  So I pedaled over there thinking maybe I could catch up to the slower ones.  Well, when I got there, they hadn't left yet.  I've only went with them once a couple of weeks ago, and one of their regulars lectured them about leaving earlier instead of wasting so much time.  Today, he was late!!  Well, I'm not really part of the group, so they asked me to take the group picture.  The lady that organizes the rides did apologize that I couldn't be in the picture.  Then she asked me if I would stay with Pastor Bill.  He's a 70-year old man that's a bit pokey.  Such a sweet guy, though.  Of course, I said yes.  So I stayed behind him the entire time.  Not sure if I got the same amount of work that I would've gotten had I rode my pace, than the calculated slow pedaling I had to do to keep myself in motion and not crash into the Pastor or fall over.

After the first loop, I wasn't feeling good.  So I called it quits.
