The low-pressure system is still swirling, so it was a cold, wet, clammy day on my mountain bike today, the middle portion of which was riding loops around the lake while M.Bro did her last long run before the half-marathon in two weeks. She ran thirteen miles this afternoon and said she felt good enough to do a couple more at the end - she's totally ready to throw down at this race. I rode 41, but according to the rules of the game, I get to count 1.5x41 = 61.5. If this weather breaks and it immediately turns 85 and sunny for two straight weeks, I think I still have a chance to break 1000 miles. If it hangs around for more than a few more days, though, nothin' doin'.
In less-damp news, I ordered these shoes tonight. Three non-replaceable (what? I know, right?!?) cleat-holder-nut-things on my Sidis stripped a couple weeks ago and I've been riding with my mtb pedals on my road bike while I look for a new pair of shoes. I really wanted something with a mesh toe because my big toe has a ridiculous curve to it that makes leather toes very painful. These were on clearance in my size, and with some store credit on my account and a googled 10%-off coupon code, I didn't pay for much more than shipping. Plus they match my bike, but I didn't tell you that.
