I had three good rides as we are having just a spectacular fall. The first one was near my house so it was short and sweet.
Then I rode with my friend on the snake route from a week and a half ago. I always like to go with Cathy but I didn't tell her I especially wanted another body along to protect me from all the reptiles. This time I saw one not fifteen so all was good. Apparently I interrupted them on Moving Day or something last time.
It was a gorgeous day on a wonderful route, a perfect end to a work day.
Then today I got the longest ride in I have had in awhile. I managed to do a loop and changed it a bit at the end. Instead of going back down the mountain I went up a bit more and came home a different way. I loved it. I did wonder this morning if it was harder leaving the house knowing that I was doing a hardish ride - lots of hills. I like to do this route at least once a year and I had not done it yet. The foliage was pretty much at peak but it wasn't sunny. I was pleasantly tired once I got home and loved the feeling.
An alpaca farm I go by I always enjoy seeing
May have been my favorite spot - I had to go to the
bathroom so badly and could not find a spot. Then
I came to this cemetery and managed to find a spot
to be a little discreet. Is that awful? It was the only place I could
Another spot I always like
Heading back to my house
Some of the prettiest colors were near home.
On the homefront - all of my cats - 3 of them - need a pill twice a day for 5 days. Do you know how hard it is to give cats pills? Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.
Back to Rock and Roll Half - I did okay in my age group - 6 out of 34. I was in bottom 25% overall and could not figure out women. But overall felt good with this especially the age. As I like to say - Age Groups Rock!
And a couple of pics from last week's run when it was sunny. I do live in a pretty nice place.
