On Tuesday, the weather was perfect, so I took Sprague road to Crete and then took the Denton Alps past Denton to W. Van Dorn before heading home. I felt great, and was really happy to be able to do a 50 miler with no pain or fatigue - especially with TdN coming up next week. Wednesday I drove up to Omaha to play golf with a musician buddy of mine and then stuck around to pick up my oldest son who was flying in from Denver - of course since he was on the last flight of the night, his flight was delayed and we didn't get back to Lincoln until 1:30 a.m.
Tonight, I went out with Jace and Adrian for a ride on the Jamaica trail out to the Roca tavern. I was feeling lousy in the afternoon and thought of not showing (the late night, the heat, Tuesday's riding and the golf all hit me at once), but as usual, once I got out I was glad I went. Bonus - we beat the weather home.

I won't get to ride much this weekend because of some family activities that are going on, so I'm glad this week was a full one. Next Wednesday I'll head out for TdN - I'll try to post a pic or two on Facebook during the trip, and then I'll put up the rest of the pics here.
Have a good weekend!
