083015podB 083015podAGetting ready for cyclocross. New socks and a new helmet. I don’t buy a lot of new cycling stuff (I am sure the CFO disagrees) but my evidence is the shoes held together with inner tubes on the toes.

083015podCI thought my POD was done…. while working in the yard, I heard the screech of tires and a loud crash, I ran down the 1/4 mile driveway and couldn’t find a crash…. what? Then I found the skid marks, (the water is from the fire trucks) the car was deep in the woods, I helped the driver out and calmed her as much as anyone could, lucky driver, she is OK, the car is not. A simple mistake, she reached behind her to scratch her back, went off the right side of the road (where cyclists are!) over corrected, spun and backed into the woods (the lucky part)

082915pod01Sam wanted to do her first 5k this summer, and we choose the Color Run in Greensboro.

082915pod02We have not started, and already “colored”

082915pod03And we are off…..

082915pod04 082915pod05 082915pod06So the run is broken up by stations where strangers throw colored corn starch on you.

082915pod07 082915pod11Same picture but different angle (second picture by Deb) I am in background.

082915pod10 082915pod09 082915pod08Finished. Thanks to Kay for joining us for Sam’s first 5k! And to Clay for running 4k to take photos on his cell phone.
