A few incidents were reported in my previous blog but the week was good with no scary encouters. Another memorable moment occured Thursday while riding in the dark near 39th South when I saw what appeared to be a fat cat crossing the road. Upon getting closer I began to see a white stripe identifying the fat cat as a skunk leading me to ride like hell. I would also like to thank the contractor working near the driveway leading to my office building for leaving a large; almost perfectly square rock in the road. After spotting it too late, I nicked the rock with my rear wheel resulting in a bent rotor. The rotor was easily fixed but still an annoying inconvenience.
I have to thank Sarah for supporting my quest to ride way to much in one week. I was quite selfish in my determined manner to ride 5 days straight and she never complained. Instead she gave me words of encouragement and always greeted me with a smile at the door no matter how tired(grumpy) I appeared. Best of all was having a warm meal ready not long after I arrived home, almost as if she could feel my stomach grumbling. Props also go to Trevor for words of encouragement and me knowing that he understood what I was undertaking this week.
As for the garden, Im trying to prolong my harvest with tarps over plants but also excited by the thought of snow. It won't be long before getting to experience the surreal feeling of skiing deep powder.
And a great picture
