Official hardcore status
I had a two and a half hour ride on my training calendar today and after yesterday's fiasco I was concerned I might die, but I survived and rode 31 miles with hubby. Go me.
It was cold and windy. I don't know what is up with my beautiful California weather.
Well, it was beautiful, just cold and windy.
We Californians are such whiners. When it is sunny and warm I will bitching that it is too hot.
The BEST lightweight running/cycling jacket EVER! This is seriously the best purchase I have made this season! I love it because it is breathable, feather light, blocks the wind, and of course, its bright PINK!
I would have absolutely died without it on for:
1. Napa Valley Marathon start
2. My freezing, nightmarish bike ride with the mean girls.
3. Yesterday's sub-arctic temperatures and gale force winds at Skyline Ridge.
4. Today's 31 mile bike ride.
I bring it with me for any run or ride, just in case. It does not take up any room, it does not weigh anything, and I LOVE IT.
