Thing One, Hickories Invitational, 22 Sep 2007

And a busy one so far.

Things One and Two were both at the same cross country meet today, the Hickories Invitational in nearby Owego, NY. H and I went to watch and cheer on the Things and their teammates.

Thing One was off in the first race, JV girls. She did not have a good day and finished about 2 minutes slower than she was expecting. Thing Two’s race, or rather her teammates’ race since Two has not had the required number of practices yet, was a couple hours later.

In between the two races I hopped on the bike for a ride. Today’s ride was mostly on NY 96 which has nice wide, clean shoulders. Other than the headwind on the return leg, it was a pleasure to ride on, especially when compared to the generally crappy PA roads just south of home. Today’s ride was was little more than 23 miles, upping this year’s total to 1767. I had almost 1000 miles by the end of June, nearly as many miles as I had all last year. 2000 was in sight. But I have not been able to ride with the same frequency as earlier and now 2000 appears doubtful. Today’s ride made it three days in a row, the first time I’ve done that in over a month.
