|The start line of this morning PF Chang's Rock and Roll 1/2 Marathon in Tempe.|
|Nobody could possibly not see that jacket.|
We decided to drive to Tempe but regretted it as cars moved at a snails pace to the parking lots and garages. We should have bike to Encanto Station and taken the Metro, as we certainly would have arrived in plenty of time for Bob to do some pre-race stretching and hydration. As it was, he had to jump out of the car and sprint to the start while I was unloading my bike. Lesson learned: always bike to anything Tempe (except for maybe IKEA).
|Bodies in motion.|
|Cool single speed.|
|At a coffee stop.|
|Firemen on bikes, ready to render first aid.|
So first real day back on the bike and I didn't die, although I did get bumped pretty again, this time on the knee that just had surgery, when my pant leg got caught on something on the Brompton - maybe an Eazy Wheel, not sure. Maybe I should use that reflective strap to secure my pant leg the next time. Good grief! A pant strap and a bike helmet?! The only thing left to make me look like a complete bike nerd is a reflective vest. I can't get off blood thinners quickly enough.
