Loggin' in another 100 miles

On May 19th, J and I rode the Salt Lake Century with a few of our favorite biking buddies; Conrad, Anthon & Cami (on a tandem) & sis-in-law Sara (the same one who is faster, younger, & much more beautiful than I. you may hear this over and over because it has become an inside joke on our blogs, although she never writes that I'm younger. hmmm....) The ride starts at the Salt Lake Fairgrounds, heads north up through Bountiful, Kaysville, all the way to Hooper, down and back on the Antelope Island Causeway, and back to the fairgrounds through the same towns. A little over 100 miles round trip. It was quite windy and hot at times, but so fun. Jay said the best way to train for that ride is to put your bike on your indoor trainer and while riding have your wife shoot a blow dryer right in your face! There's only one thing better than a long bike ride with my husband and friends, getting home to 3 little excited girls asking "when do we get to ride a century with you?" and "why do I have to be 10 to get a "race" bike?"
P.S. Sorry the pics are a little blurry, I think the camera was a little sweaty from being in the back pocket of J's jersey! :)

I'm so glad to see a new post! WOW I'm impressed. The bike has always scared me. My butt can't take it! I'm going to have to try it though, because triathalons are calling my name. Paul just spent a small fortune....check that....a large fortune on a bike! I'd love to see more posts from you! Take care

You need to keep posting so that we can stay in touch. Living far away is stinky!! We went to New York on Monday though, and that was awesome. Ride hard!

I love your blog! Maybe next spring Kim and I can join your "no one left behind" Monday group, but you really can leave me behind. I have some pics from the Freemont trip on my blog if you want to check it out.
xoxo Ruthann
p.s. I thought I was seeing your twin in the parking lot at Lowes, and it was really you.
