sun, lobsters, beer and a beat-down

what a perfect late summer wknd. jenn and i said goodbye to her mom saturday morning, which was a sad goodbye. having an extra set of hands w/an infant in the house sure was nice, plus the company for jenn... but as mary was leaving, jenn, seneca and i headed to andy's where he threw-down on a monster lobster bake, not a bad way to conquer our grief. after more than a cpl beers (first time i've had more than 2 in well over a month), a few of us found ourselves camped-out by the lobster "wok" throwing-down bug after bug.

now that's an old fashioned lobsta bake!

jenn and seneca enjoying the day.

b-dog.

sat night the Gators took-on Tennesee in the bad guy's backyard. i love college ball. so much more intense, one mistake could be the end of the season for these kids, battling it out in front of 105,000 screaming, booing, freaked-out fans. too bad my lame ass fell asleep at halftime, but the Gators pulled it off w/o my help, 21-20.

sunday morning was our first major walk as a new family. another perfect day, hit the Fells, seneca in the sling, bronte fetching. got home, ate a giant liverwurst sandwich, why, why, WHY!? before heading-out on a planned hammerfest with andy. "warmed-up" for all of 10mins before andy threw it into high gear - throughout the 70m sufferfest it wasn't unusual to look-down and see speeds of 24-26mph. little race simulation ride to get the sticks firing for next wk's 50. nice. liverwurst sandwich before hard ride? not so nice. andy and i have no idea how to work on the road, nor do we really care. he'll hammer on the front for 5-15', get his tempo piece in, then i'll take over and get my effort in. in the end, having someone else who's at the exact same place fitness-wise do a hard ride with is really sweet, as there's no way you can punish yourself the same way you can w/two.

I didn't realize my utterings across i.m. would be broadcasted to the blog world...I'll have to be careful from now on.

It did take 2 expresso shots and a coffee to get me dead legs in motion this morning.

That was a rip!!
