Waterford-Downtown-Peakway

Uncomfortably hot run with a temperature of 89 and a "Real Feel" of 99. Heart rate got way high and would not come down and I got frustrated. It'll be cooler soon though, tomorrow or Thursday in fact...

Today's run included 15 minutes at half marathon pace

Sport #2

Woke up to a thunderstorm at like 3 in the morning.  Worried that the lightning would close the pool.  Mentally sorted through my calendar to see when I could fit in the swim workout if it was missed.   Obsessed?

Run tonight!

Beaver Creek-Martha's Chapel-Davis

I started this as early as I felt comfortable riding (in terms of light) because I had a 10 mile run to do afterward and wanted to avoid the heat. Beautiful morning for riding!

Olive Chapel to Apex BBQ and back

Brick run. Temp in the mid 80s at the end but "Real Feel" of 95. I keep on telling myself that a month from now, the humidity should be gone. Keeping my fingers crossed for a beautiful fall!

Bikefest

The ride started at 7:30 in Hillsborough, just under an hour from home. I knew this. I set the alarm to arrive in time to get there, check in, find my peeps, etc. As I was pulling out of the driveway, I thought to myself, "I remember arriving there in the dark before. It's awfully light." Oh no! The ride STARTS at 7:30. It's not "I need to get there at 7:30." The.Ride.Starts.At.Seven.Thirty. I booked it and got there at 7:15. Put the front wheel back on my bike and made a bee line for check in (no line!) and the port-o-lets (short line!) and got to the start with seconds to spare. I looked for Doug because he is tall. No Doug. Oh, they are pulling out now. I decided to ride until I either found the CSH group or another group that I ride with sometimes.

About 15 minutes into the ride, I found the Cheetahs. I've done Tour de Cure and other events with them so it was all good. I was able to talk to them some and when we got to the first rest stop, one of them asked me if I was doing the 62 or the 100. I said 62 and she said to ride with them. I found a Team CBCer that I ride with from time to time (Cool Wings Dave, not to be confused with Purdue Dave or David Ley) and got him to going us as well.

Also at the rest stop, I saw Black Cannondale Mike. He asked if I was doing the 62 or the 100. I said 62 and he said that he was doing the 100, could he talk me into that? Nope. Then he said that he thought the ride started at 7:45 and he'd spent the first 25 miles try to catch up!

Anyway, I had a fun time riding with the Cheetahs and Cool Wings Dave!

Kevin was supposed to wake me up last night after we won the Powerball.  No wake up call.  No note.  Then I saw the winning tickets were not even purchased in North Carolina!  I headed to the pool and then work Disappointed.
