July Already?

2015 is flying by.  Half way done.  Crazy.

Started out the month with a nice ride.  The weather has cooled here since the storms rolled through last night.   Still a bit muggy, but it’s in the high 60’s at least.

61 days straight of riding.   Hard to believe the last day I didn’t ride my bike at all was on May 1st.   The longest I have gone this year w/o riding was 3 days back in February.

Off for a “day-cation” with the kids today.   Can’t wait!  Heading out to “Sliding Rock” in western NC.

Watch this YouTube video…. This place is so much fun. Kids and I LOVE it!

Relaxing by Riding

I’m on vacation.  Loving it.  Spending time with my two kids is just awesome.   We went out of state to visit family and had a great time.   Today we’re off to the local amusent park/water park for some more fun.   Tomorrow we’re doing a trip out to “Sliding Rock.”

I have also been relaxing by riding every day.   EVERY day.   60 days straight as of today.

No end of the streak is in sight.   Getting out yesterday on the bike was a challenge, as we had an 8-hour drive back home to NC.  I got up early and did a short ride, but a ride, nonetheless.

Weather is stellar back in NC.   Did a nice 6-mile short ride today.

This morning’s ride put me over last year’s total mileage.   Nearing 700 miles here for the year.  Nothing to brag about (I once did 18 weeks in a row of 100+ miles), but I’m enjoying my bike this year.

Here’s to the end of June and start of July.  My plan is to ride everyday in July.   I did in May and June.

The Start of “Vacation”

What better way to start a 10-day vacation than waking up early to do a 6am 11-mile bike ride?    What a great way to start the day.   I silently laughed at all the cars that passed me as they sludged their way to their jobs.

NOT ME!    I’m on V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N !

Gonna ride everyday and see what kind of miles I’m gonna  rack up.

Life is good.

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads Here

cookieSpending the weekend here with my children. Had a wonderful dinner with them last night and then we all hunkered down to watch (on brand new couches!) the movie, “Secondhand Lions” with Robert Duvall, Michael Caine, and Haley Joel Osment.

Wonderful movie, if you’ve never seen it.  (And the new couches are SO comfortable!)

Woke up this morning to a beautiful day. Temps will near 100 today, so I got out early and did a nice 6 mile ride. 51 straight days of riding, and today is day 150 (out of 172) that I have ridden this year.

Gonna spend Father’s day with my children and we are going to hit our favorite pizza joint, before I have to drop them back off at their Mom’s house.

Happy Father’s day to all the Dads here!  Hope you have a wonderful day with your children.
