    Way to go on the sunscreen! I love your new top!

    You guys are gonna have a great race!

    It was awesome to finally feel summer and be able to go out without a coat. FINALLY! I can’t wait for more days like that.

      YES! It was so nice not having to wear warm clothes when we went riding. I like my new top too. It was super cheap at the Pearl Izumi outlet store (and on sale).

    Nice ride! Instead of toe cages, have you considered clipless? I got those shoes, but I made sure the pedal for my bike has 2 sides, one with the cleat slot and one flat so that I can ride the bike with just sneakers on for quick trips. I love the clipless so much!

      Yep! That’s the plan. I already have the clips/pedals and just need the shoes.

    Wasn’t the weather this weekend just incredible??!! It made THIS girl HAPPY! Great bike and run and fun on Saturday and then the Hagg Lake swim put on by the Gecko club yesterday. The weather just made it all that much better!

    You guys RODE a long ways on those bike paths! I don’t think I would have handled the crowds so well.

    Great workout!

      It was too gorgeous Saturday not to enjoy it! The bike path was okay East. It got crowded downtown but we still had fun. How was Hagg Lake? We want to check it out.

    It was great! The event was very well run and my crew all had a great time …from the race to the after party BBQ.

    Hagg Lake itself has warmed up considerably. When we started swimming there this Spring it was 47 degrees and I believe they said yesterday it is up to 60 degrees. It felt pretty good in a wetsuit…downright warm once we got moving.
    Lots of people out biking and running and fishing. Boat Ramp C was BUSY with activity!

      Maybe I’ll wait until July to check out Hagg Lake! That’s too cold for me!
