Ride on

I won a prize in the bike race yesterday. I was the third most impoved person. I got a 5 dollar gift certificate to a really cheap local resturant called CeeCee's. I think its a buffet kind of place where 5 dollars is actually a full meal (minus drink). The main point is that I actually won something. I might just frame the gift certificate as proof of winning. Now that I dropped most of my time it will be much harder to place again because I can't always improve by large amounts, but that's ok. 

My time was 26:43. That's about 40 seconds faster than the first time trial.

On Thursdays I don't get to ride because I run experiments till 8:00pm. It's sad but still a good break. I'm looking foward to getting a ride in tomorrow. I am starting to realize that this great weather can't hold out forever. Winter is going to be long this year. I can feel it in my bones.

That's about all from here. Back to writing a proposal for Dr. Merritt.
