Sore in muscles I didn't even know I had.

Isn't my new bike lovely?

Ah, well, another District TT gone by, another last place finish by yours truly. But I really can't help if if there are some super fast TT girls that show up to this thing! In fact, I had a great ride, couldn't have been much better unless I'd actually trained for it. Go figure. But I'm happy, nonetheless.

It has come to my attention that my previous blog posts were unclear when relating my forthcoming trip to Massachusetts. Just in case anyone wants to stop by unannounced, I'll be leaving on Tuesday and I'll be back four weeks from then. See you at the races in July!

No time to ride . . .

. . . cause I was building my new bike! It came today! Or, I should say, new frame and fork came today! (Thanks Tash!) I'll post pictures later. Sure is pretty! And I think this one will fit me a little better than my last bike, which was just a touch on the large side. Those first scratches sure are gonna hurt!

I suspect that I'm not the only person who has a hard time getting motivated to cook for themselves. Unless it's a cheesecake or something to be eaten in one sitting. But really, since Cody's been gone (2 weeks now) I think I've had cereal for dinner 5 times. And instead of cooking my oatmeal on the stove in a pot I've been microwaving it. I mean, I still eat healthy and all (what's more healthy than granola w/ soymilk and fruit?) but it's not really the warm, cooked comfort food that usually graces our table. As a matter of fact, I don't think I've even sat down at the table in 2 weeks, either. I mean really, who wants to cook and do the dishes? Not I!

I quit my job! Hooray! Mr. Boss wasn't too stoked, but that was to be expected. And I don't care because I'm leaving to live a life of selfish irresponsiblity on the East coast for the next month! Woo hoo! But I'll miss my puppy . . . Someone asked me the other day if I would miss Cody, who is gone now but who I will be w/ in MA, or Riley, who I can't afford to bring on the plane so he'll be staying w/ my mom who loves him very much, more. Er . . . Cody or Riley? Tough choice! Just kidding, Riley ate a pair of my bike shorts the other day so I've decided that I won't miss him as much as I miss Cody, who doesn't destroy my bike clothes. That's a good, objective determination, isn't it?
