Training can be a lonely business... so I want to thank my friends from this past weekend for the great Connecticut ride, the conversation and the company. It was a terrific ride with lovely scenic views, cows and horses and some killer hills. A far cry from the streets of Long Island. My buddy Pete, a friend from high school, coordiated it and so a special shout out goes to him. Ron, I may be calling you again for a ride since you made a generous offer to do so. And Dave and Lindy, best of luck with your travels. Oh and a special thanks to Dave's son and wife (Troy and Judy) for the cookies and the coffee after the ride. That was perhaps the best part. Well, that's it for now. Off to the pool to be smoked by the Team Total Training gang.
