I had a great time hanging with the Raleigh Royalty this past weekend. Much time was spent poolside (under shade) and some time was even spent in the pool (and diving into the pool from the springboard). I left Raleigh yesterday morning as part of the rouse as the Royalty made a surprise visit to some water park in Charlotte.
For the most part the driving portion of the trip was uneventful as I hit no rain and kept my speed in a reasonable range.
I ate a very large Zaxby’s lunch yesterday so I punished myself for doing so by washing the M6 a few hours after my return home.
The rouse executed involved going to the outlets in Charlotte. This got me thinking about visiting the Pearl Izumi outlet up 400; save your breath, I already know that it’s closed permanently. Fortunately I Googled and found out this tidbit of information before driving all the way up to Dawsonville.
Pity, I really like Pearl Izumi’s cycling clothes and would have had fun shopping there again.
I Realized That I Match Again
When I had the Jackmobile and the Red Rocket I was red and red. This morning as I went to put the unnamed bike into the M6 (I didn’t get around to assembling the new bike rack yet, that’ll happen this week) I realized that I am now back in sync by driving a white car and riding a mostly-white bike. All is right with the world again.
I went out for an almost 24 mile ride (23.95 according to the Wahoo Fitness app) this morning. Had I known that I was so close to hitting 24 I would have circled the parking lot once. My ride was really good for a warmish, humid morning. I could get used to getting an early-morning ride in each week, at least until the temperature drops again in the Fall.
Time for me to knock out the 85 emails that accumulated in my inbox since the end of Wednesday…
How was your weekend?
