When I started this blog, I never really thought about where it would lead or how long I would keep writing, but I certainly never thought about writing 200 times.
In that time, there are some entries that I think are somewhat entertaining. Loads of really boring, trite shiz. And a few that other people have apparently enjoyed (judging by StatCounter, whenever you blog about the dangers of self-massage or you drop your iPhone in a toilet, people find your blog).
But today's post will be none of that. In fact, you might think that you've already read this about two months ago.
I went for a bike ride this morning and played with a flat tire.
At least this time it wasn't me with the flat. In fact, it wasn't even really a flat tire, just an under-inflated one that we couldn't get inflated. We even tried out some of my CO2 cartridges, although we've really got to figure out how those work because I don't think we did it right.
I mean, it felt hard, but it wasn't really hard enough.
Hate it when that happens. (That's what she said...ba da dum).
Clarence, Me and Mik - again trying to figure out how to pump a tire
Seriously...how long do you leave one of these things on?
So, for me, it was a pretty good ride. About 16 miles in 1:15 (I have no idea if that is a good time or not. I think not), but mostly I felt bad for Clarence in the last five miles were difficult. I've sooooo been there, riding on under-inflated tires. It sucks.
On the good news - home remodel front, I've got floors!
Bar/counter isn't finished yet, but the floors rock! Now I need new furniture!
Tomorrow morning, I"ll be up at O-Dark:30 again because we've decided to do the End of Summer Fire Run (a 4 mile run) from La Jolla to Pacific Beach. This will entail leaving a car in PB, then driving to LJ to register and run the race since almost none of us (except for Edith) are pre-registered, but it's a chipless-fun run, so no worries!
Race report to follow.
A huge shout out to Mel at 2nd Chances who is doing her first Tri in the morning! Go Mel!
