Had a great time playing "tapeball" with the kids right before a big storm. I am truly blessed and enjoy this time of year SO MUCH. Summer break before nationals, debate camp, and grad classes. Too bad it couldn't always be this way. Oh well, now back to work.

Stormy Ride

Sun peaking through 
I was hitting the road this morning when the weather turned sour. A storm popped up just north of my route of choice even after the weather guy said it was going to clear off. I left super early to beat the heat. I left at 5:45 am....yes AM....I was going at a pretty good clip when it got really dark. Dark I can handle but then the lightning came. Living in Kansas makes me a pretty good target for lightning. Not that many trees close to me.
I turned around when the lightning started. Right before I took this picture my phone took a tumble. I was listening to my tunes on my headphones so I can be aware of what is around me. Wind kicked up big time coming across and my bag. Velcro closure kinda opened and I hit a big bump on this shitty road and my phone bounced out and tumbled down the road. Lost my battery and I stopped...had to look for it for about 5 minutes...found my battery then found the phone. I thought it was toast but not a scratch on it. I then tried to ride in town but started feeling like crap. I just rolled home. I was hoping to get in 32 miles minimum but settled for about 15 instead.

Check out this guy on ebay. Super deal on cycling gear..

Might say PMC on it but some cool designs and good stuff. So cheap and all proceeds support the PMC or Pan Mass. Challenge. A cross Massachusetts cycling event that benefits cancer research.
