I moved from NY to WA and got a jumpstart on the season! It may be rainy here, but there's a huge difference between 50f and 35f when it's raining. I joined a randonneuring club and got in a 200km and 300km ride last month. I signed up for a 1200km in a few months, but we'll see how the planning and riding for that goes. That would be a huge step up for me.

Welcome to the 2014 Road Cycling Season! Wahoo! Last night, rode for a nice 25 mile group ride. My most difficult task was getting the blood to flow above the neck again after I was done. haha.

Next time, Mike. Next time. :)

Oh, and the swim of the tri was canceled, so it was a Bike/Run, not even a Du. Hurricane conditions in the ocean down there in DE.

Skipped a tri yesterday, kicking myself for it. 30mph winds with 40+ mph gusts on wet, newly paved roads. At least I'm not injured, but I'm also not happy. Last tri of the season anywhere CLOSE to here. And I just got my USAT card in the mail last week. :-) Oh well, next year I'll be more prepared and better trained.

Great job, John. Working toward a century later this year. The glucosomine is finally working on my knees, so it may be doable. Not sure I can keep up an 18+ pace though!

I did my first century of the season. 18.6mph ave. I was happy with that.

It's not a good thing when your nighttime BG is lower than the miles you rode the evening before! 35 miles on the road...25 BG at 1:30 am.

Leading out the chase group on an ugly day. 34 degrees, 25 mph headwind with snow. What a mess!
