75.4 @ 19.5 max 32.4

Braving the threat of rain in the high 30’s a solid group departs into an 8 mph south wind. Several sets of cooked legs kept the pace manageable allowing us to settle into a nice tempo/endurance pace.

Don joins us since all the trails are too wet to ride and Big Jay fresh off his category-winning effort at Sebring (310 miles) with 100+ in his legs from yesterday and 100+ more planned for today:

37.9 @ 17.4 max 27.4

Was messy enough this morning from an overnight dusting that I elected to sleep in. Luckily I had a ride mate and a noon departure for some much needed non-commuting miles. Slight spitting of frozen rain stung the face in mid 30’s and a 9 mph wind from the south. We did a casual loop through Sadorus with many of the miles disappearing among banter and camaraderie.

As I’m leaving work: grab gloves from jacket pocket, inadvertently grab camera strap too, fling gloves from pocket and camera 4’ out to a concrete landing … still works so it performs as labeled

Wonder how many people share these notions.
