April 2009


Presents, chicken off the grill, snickerdoodle cake, and best of all, time with the family!

And a ride: yesterday was a tough one between wind and heat, so I kept today’s ride mostly flat and rode at an easy pace.

Thing 1 was at Waverly for an invitational. 7’6″ again, with what looked to be plenty of height at 8′, just wasn’t deep enough. Took home a tie for 4th place. Sorry; no pics.

37 mile ride out to Greenwood Park. Fought strong headwinds all the way back.

Check out this elevation profile of the last mile leading up to the park:

Another dual meet today, this one against Elmira Southside, rescheduled from a cold, blustery day earlier this season.

No pictures, but Thing 1 got another 1st for Union-Endicott, clearing 7’6″.

Next time 8′ for sure!!

7’6″ again, good for first place in the girl’s pole vault in this meet against EFA.

The weather must be finally changing to be more spring-like. I got out today for back-to-back days for the first time this year.

Thing 1 cleared 7’6″ today at a track meet at Maine-Endwell. That was good enough for 6th and half of a point for the Union-Endicott team. Go kiddo!

After the meet and the weekly grocery shopping trip, I got in a 40 miler. One big hill that had my heart pumping to 167bpm for a minute or two!
