CT Interval Ride. Was supposed to run, but my knees are sore so I decided to ride and not take the pounding on my knees.

I should have run home from work today.  My wife ran home and almost collided with a guy at Oak Street Beach.  Just as she went to yell at him, she noticed it was Jermey Piven.  I guess his premire for his new movie was last week and he did the 7th inning stretch on Saturday.

Nothing on tap for today.  Just going to chill.  We had people over last night and watched the Bears game and a movie up on our deck.  Had a few beers and too much food.

This was tough. It was hot and humid out. The path was packed as every idiot was out trying to get the prime spot for the air and water show. Don't stop in the middle of the path to figure out the best spot on the beach.

Intervals on the CT

Working from home today.  They are practicing for the airshow.  Just saw a formation of a P-51, A-10, F-16, and F-22 fly by.  Pretty cool. When they come north they turn around right over my house.  Get a great view from our rooftop deck.
