Time For Change
I was about to head out for my ride today and just happened to notice a wee bit of wear on my rear tire. I'm all about getting all the miles I can out of a set of tires, but I think I may have stretched it a bit too long this time.
I'd put new tires on my road bike back during Spring and had only ridden it maybe 200 miles since putting the new tires on. Quick tire swap and the tri bike had fresh treads.
I headed out about 1:30 with no particular route or distance in mind. The weather was gorgeous again...except for a bit of wind. I kept the pace easy to steady, enjoyed the fall weather and ended up with 52 miles.
I ended up the week with 2 swims, 3 runs and 3 rides. I'll probably sneak in another ride tomorrow morning which will give me somewhere around 12 hours for the week.
Last year was the first year KJ's school had a girls U13 soccer team. It was definitely a "building" season. They played hard every game, learned a lot, but never scored a goal.....not one. She got tired of hearing me say, "just hang in there, it'll come".
Fall soccer season started here three weeks ago. First game, they played hard but lost 0-1. Game two, THEY SCORED for the first time EVER!!! Not one but TWO goals. But... they lost a close one with the final score being 2-3. This morning's game started out with the opposing team scoring a goal quickly, but we answered with a goal soon after. We scored another goal before half time to give us our first lead ever. Second half, the girls held the other team at 1 goal and scored two more for our first WIN, 4-1!!!! FINALLY!!!!!!!!
The girls were ecstatic. Actually, I think the parents were more excited than the girls.
