Soundtrack: The Head and The Heart "The Head and The Heart"
I set a new personal best for distance on a bike ride with this one. It might not have been my most intense ever, but it was certainly super long. I knew my family was going to be volunteering at Wash Park, running a water table for the Arthritis Walk. I also knew that they wouldn't be there until around 8:30, so I took my sweet time getting there, and still arrived at Wash Park ahead of them. I circled the park one and a half times, and then caught up with them setting up, which naturally had to be today's photo!
Then after a low intensity ride to Wash Park, I hustled my butt off to get back home, as there was a slight chance that I was going to be needed to head back up to the park and pick up my daughter to make sure that she made it to church on time, as in her Middle School service they were going to be doing a trivia contest that she wrote, and she definitely wanted to be there on time.
Fortunately, I was not needed to provide emergency transport, and I was able to enjoy a relaxed pace while showing and getting ready for church myself. After my long ride, my legs, arms, elbow and butt were all feeling the effects of the ride, and I was happy to have some time to take it easy.
