Wow, I'm really fast!


But this is a funny story. As I was finishing up a 15 miler yesterday morning, I was coming to an intersection and I noticed a car goin through it rather slowly. Being as the traffic lights were still blinking due to the early hour, I didn't think mych of it.

As I turned the corner, and followed the same route as the slow car just went, I was surprised to see said "slow car". Not only did I still see it, I WAS GAINING ON IT! I was clipping along at a blistering 12-13 MPH, and I was gaining on this car. As I got closer, I actually had to slow down so I would get pinched between "slow car" and the parked cars on the street. I looked to see if I could get a read on what the driver was going to do next, as I didn't want to get clipped, and saw a very lovely, dear old lady driving this vehicle.

I literally had to slow down to 5-6 MPH to stay behind her. Now I know we'll all be there someday, but really, driving 5 MPH in a 25 MPH zone. Please, leave the car in the garage.

Kinda makes you wonder what she would have done if you would have come up behind her and started to pound on the trunk? I would have been so tempted to blow the Air Zound!! weather is good and so is biking, 37 last Sunday temp 94 heat index 101 snap daddy and tri snap giddy up, planning on doing 40 - 60 on Saturday and another 30-50 on Sunday!!! training is starting to pay off, calculated workout time almost 9 hours last week including the ride "Happy Trails, safe biking and Get Bent”

HA! That's great. With my luck she'd have slammed on the breaks and I would have flown over her trunk. I'm gonna call you today to finalize our training ride.
