Not only was this a green way to burn some calories, but it gave me a chance to up my weekly mileage. I'm signed up for the Venus de Miles ride on July 29. Another woman from my running club found a deal for it and we signed up for the 60-mile ride. I'm so excited because it looks like a great time, but I need to get my ass in gear and train for this thing.
It took me about 36 minutes (moving time) to get there this morning, so I picked up the gym bag I packed the day before from my desk, then got ready at the gym across the street. I was still at my desk an hour before my normal start time. The ride home took me slightly longer at closer to 40 minutes.
As for my short post last night, I had to post and run because I was headed to Mandy's boyfriend's softball game in Naperville. I took Napoleon and you would think he was the mayor that place. I thought he'd be a jerk and bark and bite, because that's his typical behavior. Instead, he greeted everyone, happily accepting scratching and cuddling. Napoleon might be the team's new mascot, except I'm sure he prefers cricket. He is British, after all.
