It Started With An Owl

by on July 17, 2013

Sunrise is occurring later in the morning now with the solstice nearly a month ago.  When I pull away from my driveway, sunrise is half an hour away.  This morning’s ride was started with an owl hoot.  With an owl wishing me “good morning”, how can the day be anything but good?

We had a fast group and a slower group this morning.  The slower group is where I settled in.  Chip and Clint were riding their last ride before their 12ook in Alaska.  Mike C and I paced them.  They are excited and most of the conversation was about this ride and the preparations.  We chatted some about the upcoming trip to Italy that Clint and I and our spouses are taking in early September.  There remain details to work out.

Even though the pace was not the fast dash for speed records, at the end of the ride the exercise, humidity and warm temperatures resulted in me being completely soaked through with sweat.  That really is a good way to start the day … much better than attempting to ride when it is sunny and temperatures are in the upper 90’s as is forecast for today.

This Ride: 22.2 miles
Malaria Campaign: 898.8 miles
Funds Pledged: $449.40
