The best thing about my crappy ride Saturday
...is doing it with my buddies and enjoying some tasty pizza after a dip in the 55 degree waters of Lake Erie. Here's Tricia, Me, TriAl, and TriEric enjoying some wonderfully nutritional recovery fuel.
Special thanks to TriAl, who refused even at my multiple insistances, to leave me behind as I slugged up the hills. I think he did about 18 extra hill repeats just so he could go get me. He is kickin' some serious ass and is going to smoke the IMW course. Thanks for helping me get through it!
And to the hills--you will be mine next Saturday. Now I'm pissed. Look out.
As for today, reassurance is:
Negative-splitting your two-hour run by almost 2 minutes...in the 85 degree, sunshine-y, humid Ohio heat. Take THAT, doubting self.
And now to enjoy my recovery drink:
My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, damn right, it's better than yours.
(I could teach you, but I'd have to charge)
Off to shower then hit the store for some buns, sweet corn, and beers for a cookout with my Grand Canyon friends tonight!
See, just like Annie said (my FAVORITE movie as a kid--despite the fact that I have black hair, I thought I WAS little orphan Annie and have the cassette tape of me singing to prove it)
The sun will come out, tomorrow...you're only a day away!
