Starting to get annoyed that it is almost time to head back to CO. On the other hand I miss my kid like crazy.
Three weeks is a long time to be apart from my boy.

This is a huge plus. I love that my husband & I can switch bikes. Doubles the fun without doubling the budget!

It's worked out well for us, too. Plus, it's awesome walking around with such a tall woman...

The lady and I are also pretty close in height so we too can swap bikes... good except that she likes a really upright bike with a lot of set back and I like to get down and more forward on the bike to save my back.

Besides that...

Narcotics... the breakfast of champions.

You'll need to get in training then. It should be possible if you can find a flat to slightly downhill 100 miles. It will take all day. or maybe two. monkeys on tour.

Cool - where did you guys go?

I got home from work at midnight. I'm exhausted but had to play my guitar for a while to relax. Now, to bed.

I hate jogging.
But I don't despise speed walking.

something about jogging that throws my breathing rhythm off, which speed walking doesn't.

We met at the clock tower near the Tsim Sha Tsui Ferry Terminal, rode up Nathan Road for a while, then a bunch of left turns in the deep wilds of west Kowloon (didn't know the areas well enough to follow it), linked back up with Nathan Road and back to the ferry. Slow pace, lots of police escort.
