You know you had a hard ride when...

You take a nap and then hop down the first stair and almost take a face plant down the whole flight of stairs because your legs give out. Ah, good times.

Went out for 120 hilly miles this morning. Did the first 112 faster than I did my Ironman last year. Hit the magic mark at 6:25 even with an hour of warm up through downtown Cleveland. It was just a fabulous morning. Tony and I started with a group of about 8 other riders and did Cleveland's wonderful Emerald necklace tour of the metroparks. Once we had traversed the whole park system at mile 80 it was just the two of us to battle the hills up in Holden. We both ended the ride feeling like we could keep going. It's taper time for my Undermedicated teammate. He is going to take IMLP by storm!



In other news I'm working my butt off here in my acting internship. 2 more on call days and I'm free. Unfortunately I just found out I have to move, so it will be a very hectic week between call and packing and moving. But I'll have the help of my dad who is coming to visit mid-week. Can't wait to see him!

Ok, time to go to a par-tay. For everyone racing in the next month:

Go out and get the work done!
