Friends and weird places


Sorry for the lack of blogability this week--I've been at a nsf workshp in Reno. Let me just say that if you're not into gambling, Reno is really not a fun place! I couldn't even find good shopping, which is pretty much my second addiction (after bike racing). However, some of my really good friends were here, and so it was a good time to catch up (and play with mac photobooth).

I have also enjoyed 2 days off the bike! Ok...so I haven't really enjoyed them, but I'm trying to remember the mantra "your workout is only as good as your recovery" and thinking good recovering thoughts...

I am, however, craving my ride tomorrow...and also craving the cool SB air, the smell of the beach through my bedroom window, and the 6am cold wet nose on the face wakeup from my lovely early-rising irish setter, Aidan.

Ciao!

Erik--Sorry! I was stuck in a casino/hotel there, and had no bike...what do you expect I'd think! Next time Im bringing my bike! It did look like there were some great rides to be had. I didn't even have a rental car!!
