Day 1 - Ride Home

Had a great ride home yesterday.  I clocked in at just over 15 miles.  Very uneventful, but nice.  A little moist (I love my Ortlieb bags) due to some misty rain.  Still working on the route just south of the campus.  Had to wander through the neighborhoods just a bit.  I'll see how it goes on Friday.  My plan is to only ride on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  I figure that will give my legs a break until I get used to it.  Plus, due to the nature of my job, I sometimes need my car to drive across town to work on things.

In other randomness, I got a Vita-Mix 5200 from my in-laws as a birthday gift this morning!  RAWK!  I almost bought one of these back in April, but decided to wait.  It can tear down fruit, veg, and other foods like nothing else.  I'm excited to get home tonight to make some killer smoothies for it's inaugural run.
