Could Have Been Worse

See how my thumb sinks into the tire? That's shouldn't happen.

Prepare for the irony.

On Friday, I told Keith & Greg, "I haven't had any tire issues in two years." Bad karma. And it caught up with me less than five miles into a twenty mile bike ride. Pedaling suddenly sucked. Balance sucked worse. Steering sucked the most. Was hoping for a slow leak. Hit it with CO2. Then the whole thing went flat again within fifteen seconds. Had a spare tube. But no spare air. Fortunately Jenn was able to go back for her truck. And I limped home.

Could have been worse. However, I did manage a new personal record in the lake. Four laps x 440 meters. Nearly a mile. Longest distance I've ever swam in open water.

So I got that going for me...
