WildRide 2013

WildRide 2013 Logo

Enjoyed another long(ish) bike rally this past weekend- the Richardson WildRide.  Have done this one a couple times before- nice route and well managed.  Was crowded this year though, with nice weather for 3/4 of the ride- until the strong headwind coupled with a long gradual uphill on the way back.

We powered through the 40 mile route with no problems though.  WIll save the 60+ mile distances for later in the summer.

Birthday Fun Time

Start of 47 mile White Rock Lake ride

My 47th birthday was today.  They come so fast.  But each year I like to defy my age and do a stupidly long endurance event, usually centered around my new age.

This year I did an age-related self-triathlon.  I started out by doing both the 5:15 am and 6:30 am Plano Wetcats swim workouts, until I reached 4700 yards.  Then, after a ridiculously long first transition (T1 to my tri colleages) which involved eating lots of pancakes, I packed up the bike and headed for White Rock lake.
