I Have the Power!

But apparently Haloscan does not. Well, what should I expect from a free service?

Anyway, got back from my ride a little while ago. Note to self: next time try to not wait until it's 87 degrees to go biking. The highlights:

* Low Moment #1: about 1 mile into it a hay truck passed me, spewing stray hay all over the place. This stuff was floating in the air for another half mile or so. Gag.

* High Moment #1: fastest time to 10 miles, on pace for just under 19 mph. Feelin' good!

* High Moment #2: I hate riding slowly up hills. Right around 43 minutes, I saw a dude ahead of me on what I call "Fairfax Hill" (because it leads to the town of Fairfax), and decided to kick by him. I really cranked and was quite pleased with myself, although this episode led to Low Moment #2...

* Low Moment #2: hit the proverbial wall at about the 45 minute mark on what I call "Grinch Hill" (it's right by a house that loves putting out a frooglepoopillion X-mas lights, and the hill itself is a mercifully short, but absolutely brutal incline around a curve). Had to downshift, which is anathema to me.

* In the "life's little victories" category: I did not break the hour mark on this loop, but I did bump my average up to 18.1 mph (from 18 even).

* 2 things stuck in my head the entire ride:
- "You have the power!"
- Principal Skinner saying "I made a game of it. Seeing how many times I could bounce the ball in a day, then trying to break that record."

Carry on,
