Wee run with a few strides in advance of this weekend's half marathon.

5 x 30 seconds strides with 30 seconds between mid run.

Still have not heard back from insurance.  Went ahead and ordered the bike that I want.  It should be in on about December 1.  I'll deal with the wheels after the insurance situation is worked out.

Short bike ride out to see if Old Apex-Holly Springs Road has reopened. It has not. The section that they have been working on as part of I-540 for the past 14 months is still not paved.

Short run with Em after the bike

Finally saw the sun today!  The last time we had sun was on Friday.  It's very unusual for us to have that much cloud cover for that long.  The wind situation has improved a lot too.

Drizzly and windy walk with Emma. We still have bands of wind/rain from Hurricane Sandy.

I met with Steve at CSH and we did the road bike fit (sans road bike).  He was able to get the measurements from my crashed bike and use them on the SICI machine.  Adjustments were made from there and we were able to determine which road bikes will (and which will not) fit me.  The new data will be applied to the fit of the new bike.

Habitat for Humanity Halloween 100k.

The ride was hilly and windy (15 mph sustained wind with gusts to 22) but dry. Most of my riding friends bailed due to the Frankenstorm forecast but I latched on to a nice group and I had fun.

Jack the Pumpkin, before the Habitat for Humanity Halloween ride this morning.  In the background, cyclists are getting ready in front of the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
