I'll sleep but they won't

I'll sleep but they won't. It's Ironman KY eve. Chris put that he was going to bed this evening at 7:30 because the day starts at 2am. I can only imagine the excited going through their veins as they try and slumber.

Today was Hotter-n-Hell 100 in Wichita Falls Texas. Haven't heard much out of the folks but haven't search it on Twitter yet either. It's a huge bike ride and by the end the wind is head wind and the temps are usually 100 or over. People fall over, throw their bikes down and walk or just plain croak in the middle of the road. It lots of fun.

Well the bike is coming back to life tomorrow. I know, I can't believe it either. I'm looking forward to hitting the river trail to see how the legs are. Hoping to pick up an after work ride maybe a night or two. Being off the saddle has certainly changed my mid-section. I need intervention! HA!

Tomorrow is my last service as graphics guy. When I loaded the service the other night it was one of those events like the last of a TV series. I looked at the computers smiled then turned off the lights. It has been a fun ministry and I'll miss it but I'm looking forward to whats ahead such as traveling with Terri as well as caring for my Dad more. Starting next weekend (Labor Day) the travel begins... let's just say I'm giddy!

Have you seen the weather forecast? Yay! Beautiful cool week ahead.

Life is good!
