    You didn't ride today, sooo, what did you do?

    Thought this would be a fun thread to see what occupies our time when the weather, or life just doesn't cooperate!!

    Went out to the farm and started building a new entry door for the barn, winterized the new (ancient) Tractor.

    i ran the gobbler hobbler 10k and did it 2:42 faster then last year. for the metric impaired that is 6.2 miles of running in 47:17, which lends a 7:37 per mile pace. i think i had more to give in the middle miles, but i am still learning this running thing.

    then i ate at red robin, watched bourne indentity and drank beers.

    later.

    Went for a hike after work this morning at 8am, then caught up on lost sleep.

    Movies watched this week from Netflicks (click on titles):

    Vive Le Tour - shortish French film about the 1961 or '62 Tour de France with Rik Van Looy, Federico Bahamontes and Jacques Anquetil. Excellent footage with those tough old buggers in wool jerseys and shorts. English subtitles and HIGHLY recommended!!

    Red Light Go = Documentary about life as a bike messenger in New York City. Including their 'Alley Cat' racing in the city. NO BRAKES! Full of interviews and really gives a nice perspective on what it's like. THose guys are nuts! Again HIGHLY recommended!!

    weather went bad this morning sooo, cleaned the basement, it really needed it too! Went to the local backpacking shop and got some warm stuff for the coming winter and a new ski rake for the car.

    Organized all my ride maps and put my home bike shop in order, have some projects for the winter to do.

    The real bummer is I have tommorrow off and the weather looks even worst, aughhhhhhh!!!

    Went for a ride this morning since the weather was cold but sunny. If we had ice coupled with wet leaves, it would have been a run on the treadmill at the excellent Y.M.C.A. near my home.

    Should have ridden today, but I slept in, raked the leaves, and preped the mower and generator for winter. Next up - making sure the snow blower works.

    No time to ride.

    I'm running low on beer so I brewed a batch (another hobby), then shuttled the kids around.

    Wheel barrowed nearly a thousand pounds of log sections from my neighbors' back yard to my wood-pile. Why, I do not know, as I will be moving back East long before I can burn it. Any one in the Bay area want several tons of firewood?

    we were at my inlaws house in Pittsburgh (Murrysville) PA this weekend. They live at the top of a VERY VERY steep climb. My son wanted to see if he could climb the hill on his mountain bike so he and I went out for a little climbing session. After that we watched the Steelers beat up on the Browns then we drove the almost 3 hours home. I did some work on our basement construction after we got home and know.....here I am.

    Sorry, aham, the only contruction projects I'm proficient at are making birdhouses with my 7yo. I know a guy that does a great job finishing basements if you're interested though. Pics and references available. I do "car" jobs...anything that doesn't require pulling the engine out...if anyone needs anything done

    I'm no wiz. Math is what computers and calculators are for.


    ....oh and algebra ROCKS! I wich I had me some algebra to work on. Oh, and tell your children that you do actually use algerba in real life. Just yesterday I was trying to estimate tooling needs and used it do solve for some quick ratio estimating.

    no riding today, had to go to the dentist, of course he found a bad tooth so now I have to find $500 to get a crown. Maybe I'll just get it pulled, got to be cheaper! Then I can Spend the money on a nice pair of ceramic bearings, got to be better than on my teeth, they grow back, right? Just kidding!
