Well, I'm starting a new job this week. That means my training will have to take a back seat for the next several days. But that should work out just fine, since this is my taper week. A week from today, on July 4th, I'll be riding from Milwaukee to Sturgeon Bay, where I'll meet my wife and two other very special friends, Dave and Nancy. You see, Dave and Nancy were responsible for helping Linda and me meet! They now live in Salt lake City, Utah, but are spending the summer in Wisconsin. On my ride up there (yes, by bicycle), Linda will be getting her first experience at working as a support crew member, meeting me along the way to hand off fresh water bottles and food. After a quick shower at our hotel and some "recovery calories", we'll be joining Dave and Nancy for the local fireworks. I might need a few good booms to keep me awake!
