Long Day

Not much to say today; did an other early (I mean early) 16 mile run to the office. This was my third and probably last for a while. I have to say, running to work has proved to be a terrific way to start a day - nothing like watching the sun rise over the Golden Gate Bridge, but the downside is that it has left me pretty shelled come the end of the day. So right now I am sitting here, watching American Idol with the boy (more on AI later but thus far I am not blown away by this season. I think the show might finally be losing my attention) and trying to muster to press the keys here.

In other news, I finished the Lost City of Z, which was my first Kindle book. I dig the kindle but it's a bit disconcerting not knowing what page you are on. Last night, I was surprised to have finished the book. I knew I was approaching the end, but I didn't know that was it until I literally read the last word. It said that I was 72 percent done, so I thought I had more to go, but I didn't realize that this included footnotes.

So, it's a bit of a paradigm shift to read in this manner, but reading off the device is much easier than anticipated and overall, it's ben a great experience.

Lastly, get well, Lance. I cannot freaking believe he crashed out in Spain and am bummed for him that the break was complicated. I think he'll be ok though. He'll ride Giro not to win, but to regain his fitness and that will make him that much moire dangerous at the Tour.

I think a lot of riders in the peleton, Alberto (who I respect tremendously) included, are under estimating Lance. All I can say is: if so, big mistake on their part.

Hope you are on the mend. I too bite into an olive with the pit remaining on a Pizza on my birthday. This is probably one of the most common ways the dentist get rich. Hope it wasn't to painful.

Sounds like your ready for Boston.

gs has it right, try running home. It will probably be incredible going in other direction.
