bike expo!

Today we dragged our tired bodies out of bed, saddled up our bikes, and rode down to Bike Expo. It's the longest ride I've done since, oh, the triathlon last summer... Wil's been riding back and forth to work for the past couple of weeks, but other than our one ride a couple of weeks ago, I've just been riding in the trainer.

Bike Expo was fun, looking at all of the schmancy bikes (ooh, a $5,200 bike? Ummmm...) and trying the rehydration drinks and "power" snax... We each tried on a few things, but realized we really don't need anything. Had a glimpse of Sally Edwards, but whereas I wanted an "anyone can do triathlons!" talk, she was giving a "here's how you train in different heartrate zones" talk, so we didn't stick around. 

Best of all, we rode over 16 miles today and I feel okay. Well, other than residual soreness from yesterday's run...

Tomorrow I head to Phoenix, where I hope it's not too hot to run.
