we biked and bricked the course this morning.  it was 90° outside, but we biked it 10 minutes faster than last time, a month ago.  the park was packed with cars and there were at least as many bikes on the road as cars.  there are at least 8 good hills on the course, and on the last one, the man biking in front of me sort of slumped over off the road.

joe ended up cooking the entire meal himself, while i pathetically clutched a cold beer can…
