After being a lazy bum on Friday evening, having a few beers at Lucky’s Burger & Brew in Brookhaven with the boss, I headed home and crashed on my bed. While sitting at the bar I also committed to riding on Saturday morning.
As I started my drive toward Vinings I received a text message from my friend who de-commited from the ride, alerting me that he was sick. I could have kept on the straight and narrow, but since I was running a bit late myself I decided to turn around. I bet you are thinking that I’m going to say that I didn’t ride because of this. Oh no, I was dressed and ready to go, so once I pulled into my driveway I popped the bike off the back and headed out for thirty-four miles. It was a lovely day that started in a fog, and ended with brilliant sunshine. Upon returning home I proceeded to take a nearly three-hour power nap. SCORE!
I was supposed to go to a play on Saturday night, but I was in no mood so I stayed at home and drank red wine.
On Sunday I had two entertainment options – hashing, joining my boss and another of our friends for a day of drinking. I chose the former assuming that if I was going drink I might as well get some exercise prior to doing so. With BWANA, Davey Crochet, and Super Suck as the hares you know that the trail was shiggy-filled. I rediscovered that no amount of riding helps in the preparation for running (hashing). We ended trail, packed up and drove over to Sanitary Not’s house for circle and celebration. I sat on the ice for being a “too long”, and may have expose the true meaning of my hash name. 😉
My legs are super sore today. Because of this I decided to skip my morning trainer ride.
Tonight I will be doing a lavanderia trip to clean all of my nasty hash clothes.
How About That Amazing Race?
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
On Saturday morning I downloaded an watched the finale of The Amazing Race. I couldn’t have been much happier with the episode. There were three memory challenges, the Paparazzi team self-exploded through argumentation (and should really blame the Green Team for scaring off their taxi), and the Green Team cost themselves a million dollars because they were to cheap to give their cabbie another $100 to wait for them. I think that the Reporters are worthy victors given the number of times they finished in second place during this season.
I can almost see the Green Team returning for a future “Second Chance” or “All-Stars” edition of TAR.
