House Guest

We signed up for something called Warm Showers, where touring cyclists can arrange to stay with us overnight, and last night we had our first guest: a young Korean guy named DK Yu, who was passing through on his trip around the world - he'd started in Istanbul, had biked through Eastern Europe, Germany, Denmark and Iceland, and was now working his way to LA and then to Australia. Pretty cool! We had John and Donna over as well, so it was quite a dinner party...

Between his need for bike repairs, and the crazy weather blowing through, he'll be staying again tonight, so maybe we can get more of a chance to talk with him.

High Summer

Morning weigh-in: 196#, 10.5% BF

I had off Friday but took it easy, basically sitting on the porch and finishing Zero History by William Gibson, though we did ride over to Steelstacks to watch the USA-China soccer game (and check out the new elevated walkway through the steel mill), stopping at McShady's for some wings with Scott & Carrie and her friend.

Saturday was rainy so I took it easy some more, doing a bunch of coding and web browsing - we went out that night to see Spy.

Yesterday was a leisurely bike ride: we rode to Sals to watch the MTB race, then over to Emmaus for coffee. Saw Doug & Lori later that evening at Brew Works.

The living, as they say, is easy.
