TOTAL: 63 miles.

Thank god. finally a decent week of training. I've been really busy, too, which makes it feel even better. The bike shop job is going to be awesome, I think. I put together bikes, sell stuff and most important: talk about training with guys who work there. Rob is 42, life-long cyclist and still rides for a few companies, trains very hard year round and has a pretty solid race schedule set up for the year. Good inspiration and good focus for my own running.

It's one thing to read a bunch of blogs, but it's another to talk face-to-face with a guy who is killing it. Definitely feel a renewed sense of purpose and dedication. Which is a funny thing to discover you need. but not "haha" funny.
