My Buddy

Landon was playing with me and my hat. He looked especially cute, so I had to take a picture. He looks a lot like me, chubby cheeks, gut, a little clumsy, and generally happy.

In other news, I have lost 2 inches in circumference -- around my belly. Only another 25 more and I should be good for washing laundry on my new washboard abs... Well, its worth wishing.

So far I am up to 18 days of riding to work and around 65 miles behind me. It is getting much easier. When I first started, I rode on the "easiest" gear most the time, and now I only usually shift down to 3-4 from the hardest pedaling. Only time will tell, but I think it is going well.

Bridal Veil Falls

We went to Bridal Veil Falls in Provo Canyon with the Kids and Josh and Ingrid. I don't think I had ever been there, but the kids had a lot of fun playing in the water. It was SOOO cold, but they got used to it. I didn't. It was nice and warm outside, so that helped too.

Fix a flat

I ended up getting a new tube for each tire since I got a flat, the new tubes have green goop inside them that is supposed to "auto-patch" any small holes. The guy at the Trek store said he had had them for 4 years and never gotten a flat. So I spent about 45 minutes this morning changing out the one bike tire. I will change out the other one later. We got a Mini air compressor that is rechargeable that fits in the car, has 12 volt and 110 volt outlets, a work light, and batter jump starter. I eventually would like to get a real air compressor, but this will be good for now.

I figured it was worth spending a few minutes in the morning to repair the tire and ride to work again, because if I skipped 1 day, it would be a lot easier to skip 2 days.
