Many accomplishments this weekend.

I rode the Seattle Tour de Cure 45 miler yesterday with 1bluetrek and we had a great time. The weather was chilly, but the rain held off until we got back and finished chowing down.
There were a few accomplishments for the day:
- 1bluetrek's fastest 45 mile time by about 45 minutes, because I am a mean taskmaster
- My longest ride since my surgery; 52 miles! I'm ready to start tackling a P-12 award with Randonneurs USA.
- I got my ride t-shirt in a Large. Plain old large, with no X-es.
- My weight is up 2 pounds from last weigh in, but my bodyfat is down by 1%.

Congratulations CliftonGK1 !

Sounds like you and 1bluetrek have some celebrating to do. I choose cake, perhaps that's why I'm a clyde .

Matter of fact, there was cake!
After 3 years of doing this ride on the same team together, we finally managed to get the families together this year for dinner. It was a great weekend.
