As I'm sipping the relatively cool good stuff a.k.a. water at my first fountain stop, I take a closer look at the fountain and two big eyes are staring back at me... It was only a cicada, but I wonder if he was as startled as I was being 2 inches from my nose. Oh well, made for a fast drink, I didn't want to bother the bug. Yes the heat-humidity combo continues, and dew points in the 70's are not comfortable, but so what, it's nothing new, and I got business to get done on these paths. It was a pretty fun run even with the cicada, but oh so many people out there, even at 6:30 when I started (late entry today). Continued soreness this week, but today felt pretty good. Gotta love Saturday! Have a great weekend!

    Thanks guys! @Janine - ha. Actually today I'm pretty sure I saw a large group of tri newbies all on their bikes together. First time I saw that.

    Superb pace Ken! I overslept my morning window. Hoping for lakefront 10-ish this eve, if the heat ebbs a bit and the storms hold off.

    You weren't tempted? I read cicadas have the perfect carb protein ratio for endurances athletes. ;-) Meep Meep as usual, Ken!

    Wow Ken. Super run. I be careful about those cicadas. If you mess with one they usually have about a million friends nearby :-) enjoy Sunday and I hope the soreness ends soon.
