"Comon everybody! We're going to Sears!"

Today was a good day. Bill picked me up around 10:30 and we headed down to ride the Cherry Creek time trial course with Scott. It was weird riding without Chris (who is in Moab for the weekend), but we had a great time and a great ride. Weather turned out really nice -- 50s and overcast -- not hot and not cold. I'm feeling better about riding the time trial series after today, so that's always a good thing. We had some delicious Tokyo Joes and then took a spin in Scott's car (the one that has lived in my garage space for about a year until recently) -- man, it's fast! I forgot the boost feeling of a fast Turbo car, it brought back the giggles!

Bad news is that I think our washer finally kicked the bucket. That's a bummer. It has been leaking profusely out the bottom and after being disected by my dad last week, we'd pretty much determined we'd need to get a new one. Being the cheapos that Chris and I are, we hooked it all back up and decided to keep using it -- what's a little water on a crappy floor anyway? Well, I tried to get some laundry done today and the spin cycle has stopped spinning and I think our clothes would've been better off being washed in our jacuzzi bath tub. Oh well. "Comon everybody! We're going to Sears!"

Here are some great pictures that Bill took from Lookout Mountain last week. Chris's camera should be returned in the next week or two seeing as I finally got an estimate from Cannon to fix it -- only $100 so I sent off the credit card number and hopefully he'll be back in business with pictures for his blog.

The horses:

Ready to ride (Sorry bek, I realized you can't see my new duds in any of these pictures):

Yay! I made it to the top!

I'm one of those little dots on the road :) Good thing you can't hear me complaining about my toes about to freeze off...

Word from Moab is that Chris and the guys had a great ride today. Chris is running on very little sleep and he sounds a bit tired. He had a little crash today and said his whole left side is quite sore and he sounds a little perturbed about that. They were going to take a nap and head to Fruita to ride a little tomorrow depending on how his knee was feeling. Hopefully they make it everywhere ok and he's healed up and good as new very soon.

Man, amazing pictures! I blew up your picture, and from the blue jacket figured out that you were the one riding on the very outer edge of the road, nice work! As to the freezing cold temps of riding down, I can only imagine! We road down that volcano in Hawai'i and my goodness, I was cold for the first half of it. Secondly. I know, I couldn't see your new duds, but I do like the matchy matchy of you and Chris. I also like the matchy matchy of your helmet to your jacket, very nice and you earn extra bonus style points for that one! Now here comes my question; does Chris only have one CU jersey? If he does, do you wash it multiple times a day?

Yay that was a fun ride. I'm glad you got the pictures now. Guess it's time to go washer shopping...
