Inspired by The People’s Champion and not being selected for the Tour of Utah, I got up at 5 this morning to pedal my bike. I figure if he can do it in their winter, I should be able to man up in our summer. In any case, the hardest part is just getting out of bed, especially as this still only affords me an hour to ride and what can you do in an hour, right? Well, my mission is to find out what you can do in an hour, I guess. Parked at the base of Suncrest and rode both sides, then on into work.
Unfortunately, we’re hitting a little lull in the hot racing action here in Utah, so it may take a bit to see if my new hour of power helps or if I am just even more tired all the time.
I think we are going to go back to Long Beach next week for July 4th, but oddly, there’s no racing out there. There is waaaay up by San Luis Obispo, but I’m pretty sure Kelly wants to stick close to the fam bam. Me too, really. Kinda wish we’d have planned it to hit up Manhattan Beach, but it wasn’t in the cards this year, I guess.
In other news, I got to cruise the mean streets of Provo last night by bicycle. Provo is where it’s at. Especially in the summer, and I think summer is finally here. I really don’t think I want to move. I mean we can move houses, but not to another town. Straight outta Pleasant Grove ,or whatever, just doesn’t have the same ring. Of course, I’ll likely change my opinion by tomorrow. And when I say “I”, I mean Kelly.
