First and foremost, MY NEW BIKE HAS ARRIVED! Whew, that was stressful. I did indeed survive 19 hours on my trainer last week (including a 5 hour/6 hour double last Friday and Saturday) but it was painful. Now that it's over I can say I'm kind of glad I was forced to endure the extreme boredom and mental fatigue of riding my bike for that many hours in my living room. Mental fatigue point has definitely been adjusted!

|It should be noted that by the time I got home from work, the cookie and cream soda were no longer available. (hint, Oscar looked suspiciously content...)|
|My beets are roasting, my beets are roasting!!! :)|
|Looking a bit haggard after that ride. All I could think about for the last hour home was the watermelon in the fridge. I may have eaten 5 (or 10) pieces.|
|I know everyone has already read this one but what can I say, I'm behind the times.|
And with that, I think I will go lay in my bed until it's dark enough to sleep. :) Best of luck to everyone racing this weekend - most of all to all those at Eagleman! I'm very sad to be missing EM this year as it's one of my favorites. I'm not sure why because it's always 10,000 degrees with 10 million % humidity. But I do enjoy the eagles in the Blackwater Preserve. Oh, and the sno-cones at the run turnaround. :) Have a great weekend all!
