i made a pit stop right by the huge soccer/track field to wipe my glasses. as i was stopped, two cyclists rode past me. one of them stopped and looked like he wanted to talk to me. i looked at him and he said nothing so i said "what's up?" he wanted to know if this is where everyone meets up for the race. im like "oh, is that a race they do here on tuesday nights?" "well, it's not actually a race, they mainly just do 7 laps around this area every tuesday night." "how many people show up?" "about 30." "and they do this even in the winter time when it gets dark early?" "yeah, they do." SWWEEEET! when i get into better physical shape, i will join them. according to the dude, they do a lap in 10 minutes. but it's hard to judge the intensity of it since i don't know the distance. the guy also said that they complete this "race" in 50 mins....which doesn't make any sense at all. if you think about it, each lap is 10 mins and there are seven laps....how can that = 50 minutes to completion. it makes no sense.
When i get into better shape, i may take up swimming as well. that can be my saturday sport! and possibly climbing.
