Riders of the Storm

A thunderstorm caught me on my bike about a third of the way to Annapolis today. But I kept going, and a few hours later a torrent of water, a ton of gravel and I all arrived safely at my parents' house. There was a dicey bit where I was on this flat, elevated stretch of Race Track Road in the pouring rain. I could actually see lightning flashing and striking around me, but sometimes there's nothing to do but keep going.

Dear Tom,
Weather forecasts are your friend.

Apparently Sarah Palin ran a 3:59 marathon in 2005. New marathon goal: beat Sarah Palin. I wish she wasn't so fast, though.

I found this picture of me and Emily today from freshman year. It's even got the date on it, which is cool: October 11, 2004.

Radio Shack filmed a whole bunch of commercials with Lance Armstrong. I think it's gonna be awesome if they get a podium finish out of someone else after all that. I think I prefer to cheer for Leipheimer anyway.

And today I sent in my entry for the JFK 50 miler. I hope I get in, I think.
