Another ride

I did another 30 miles today. That puts my total miles for 2012 at 460. It nice being outside again. The only highlight of my ride was near the 15 mile mark. There was a tractor driving down the road.

One of the best things about older tractors is that they are generally pretty slow. I tend to have an strong urge to try and pass things that are slow. It was pretty far in the distance, but I could tell that I was making up ground. It turns out that you can see awfully far ahead in a state as flat as Indiana. I chased it for about 2 miles and was getting fairly close to capturing it, but I was already past my predetermined turn around point. In the end I let it slip away to start my journey home. I probably made the right choice since I faced a stiff head wind all the way home.
