The big 6-0-0

Last night Chris and I dragged ourselves out of the wonderful air conditioning and went on a ride. I know, imagine that. Neither one of us were super motivated, but both of us knew we *should* ride. Luckily the legs felt good and the breeze ended up being nice. Eventually we got away from the cars and had a peaceful excursion on the road. But the big news was that my road bike odometer turned over 600 miles! Wohoo! Ok, so I've had the bike for more than a year and it's only at 600, but it sounds more impressive when you realize that I turned over 200 in a trainer session with Chris and Feedback Jim in December or Januaryish. So I've had about 400 miles this year on the road bike alone... as opposed to last year where I probably didn't have that split between both bikes.

In other news, I have an interview on Friday with a school in Denver Public Schools. Whether I get the job or not (it's a .5 kinder position), I'm happy to say I at least got an interview. It's about time. I haven't interviewed in a while, so I hope I can keep it together ok. At least I'll be going into this one with some teaching experience under my belt, whereas I just had to b.s a bunch of stuff before. Wish me luck!

Tomorrow is Green Mountain with the Wednesday group. I hope my throat is feeling better and I hope the mean old men on the Harleys don't harass us again. I guess I'll put Lakewood police on speed dial this time.

harley dudes harrassing my peeps? that is outside the scope of the bitterness bingo cards, and there shall be none of that.

Good luck with the interview, that is cool that you got one. It will be cool to hear of your stories with your new group of kids, whenever and where ever that happens to be

The miles will start adding up even faster now :) Someone should start a little training log.

Congrats on the interview!

Mean old men on Harleys? What's that?
