This morning I biked to the OMU Power Run and then did the 5 km run in just about over 35 minutes. Still slow, but hopefully I'll keep improving! After the door prizes were given out and awards presented, I biked home. Now I can start the rest of my Saturday!

Bike to Work Friday

It was a tad cool this morning, but was to warm up to the mid 80's this afternoon. I'm trying to get into a regular habit of biking to work on Friday's if not other days during the week. I made it last night to a local park and to work today. Hopefully I'll be able to bike to the OMU Power fun run tomorrow morning, too.

Today's Mileage: 4.6 miles

Corp Challenge Bike Race The race was held early this morning at Panther Creek Park. There were a few OMHS riders, including myself, and a few of them got medals in their divisons. It was a good, fast route and a decent turn out. Times will be officialy posted next week, but I think I did the 10 miles in about 34 minutes, for an average mph of about 17.5.

Today's Mileage: 11.7 miles

Nice day to Commute to Work

I haven't commuted to work in a while. However, with the cooler mornings, it's a great time to ride into work. On my way home, I stopped at a local appliance store and bought a new gas range. I'm looking forward to re-making my kitchen. I also would like to top 500 miles ridden on the bike this year. I know that's a lot less than many bike riders, but it would be huge for me to make that mileage goal.

Today's Mileage: 3.1 miles

Weekend Ride

Saturday was a pretty nice day in Owensboro for a ride. It was a tad muggy, but the temps are colling off with a little rain this weekend. I didn't go to the Old Kentucky Home Tour because I didn't want to be riding in thunderstorms riding 50+ miles between Louisville and Bardstown. I'll have to try again next year! Instead I did my normal route down Griffith Ave. to catch the Greenbelt and headed to Joe Ford Nature Park and back. A short ride, but that's okay, because the thighs felt a little heavy for some reason.

This weekend's Mileage: 10.1 miles
2007 Year to Date Mileage: 286.6 miles
