The machine has got to be accepted, but it is probably better to accept it rather as one accepts a drug -- that is, grudgingly and suspiciously. Like a drug, the machine is useful, dangerous, and habit-forming. The oftener one surrenders to it the tighter its grip becomes. -George Orwell, novelist (1903-1950)

Sure did. I'm going to try the Northshore Century Sept 12. I'll be missing my sisters half marathon but I'm totally fine with that.

unsavory? how unsavory? the unsavory things I know are what make me like him so much

Ha. Cause I love him and I don't have a good picture of myself or a bike. I am a current wizard! I'm the promo director actually!

I'm actually loving this winter riding. It makes me feel tough :)

Thanks for the offer re: the swap.
Metra adds 90 minutes to my journey I am not too excited about, as I'd have to travel downtown to pick it up-- still trying to find other options.
Thanks!

I'm riding as much as I can... I figure if I can get through winter on a bicycle (I just moved here from Texas) I can get through anything.

hey mike, I just went through my photos and added captions and general locations to all of them. they're all from my recent Lake Michigan circle tour, so sometimes I had to just put general locations when I didn't know specifics

Humans think they are smarter than dolphins because we build cars and buildings and start wars etc., and all that dolphins do is swim in the water, eat fish and play around. Dolphins believe that they are smarter for exactly the same reasons. -Douglas Adams, writer, dramatist, and musician (1952-2001)
