Books: the gifts that really do keep giving

Morning weigh-in: 177.5#, 14% BF

Reading Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything (which is mainly about the history of scientific discovery), and just got to a section about leaded/unleaded gasoline, CFC's and the age of the Earth. Bill Bryson rules.

Rode Tuesday at J'burg, fast fun ride where I met Rick Hauser riding w/ some friends of his, including Curt Miller's son Matt. Friggin fast kid... Last night was 2.5 hours OT, ditto tonite. I may run tomorrow morning, and will ride the towpath tomorrow nite.

I can live it, or blog about it, but not both

Busy weekend, but now I'm a little tired so this'll just be a quick recap:

Friday night I rode the towpath (duh).

Saturday I ran my first 5K race. My goal was 25 minutes, but I got 25:58. I was still happy: it was a hilly course and I was satisfied with my effort. Saturday evening was a picnic at Mike and Carole's place, a couple I know from Which Brew who live in my neighborhood. Nice people, good time.

Today was the NYC 5-Boro Bike Tour. Up at 3:00 AM, on the road with Brian H by 4:00 to catch the first ferry into Manhattan, and then 42 miles of riding through the city with 30,000 people.

I might write more about this stuff some other time, but for now I just want to crash.
