Another fine morning on the two wheeled wonder machine and a nice surprise, which was fresh from the oven when I arrived back home. Can you tell that we've been married for almost 34 years? I had two by the way.
Hell of Hunterdon 2017 - Eighty mile mixed surface w/6,000ft of climbing
Got to meet Josh, Tim and Mr. Tom Kellog. Fun roads and a fun ride (sorry Josh)
It was cold outside today but the baby need be scrubbed down.
Part two of the weekends events.
Caesar Rodney Half Marathon- Wilmington, Delaware: Garmin time 1:29:32 at 6:50's and official time 1:30:28 at 6:54's (USATF certified courses are purposely long)
I was hoping to just get 7:45-8:00 pace based on training times and well, the eighty mile ride the day prior. Surprised myself a bit and had a good time in the process. The back half has some tough hills ranging from long and grueling to short and punchy, took it out of me a bit but still ended pretty well. New half marathon PR today. Now I'm thinking by the fall I can try and go sub 1:25 maybe in Philly on a flat course.
Got out for 40 miles today before doing an umpire clinic the rest of the afternoon. I didn't ride yesterday, I got a last minute call to umpire in Oklahoma so I spent the day calling 11 under select baseball at the Choctaw Casino ballfields. I didn't stay for Choctaw Bingo but maybe that's just a song.
Pictures, nice sunny day. A close up the special edition dual compound Michelin Pollen Pro 4. Our state flower, the bluebonnet.
I heart burnt bikes.
I started off the day teaching the pup to fly.

Thanks for reading!
My wife's bike (and the rest of our other, less important, stuff) arrived in Germany from Canada after a 3.5 week shipping delay. Finally got to show her some of the great roads around here! Doesn't hurt that the weather was fantastic.

Yeah, it's spring. The rain is slightly warmer.
