Yesterday morning, against my better judgment, we did our long run at Umstead. We met Aaron and his friend Marty (aka #2) and the deerflies were out in droves. Luckily, those two had their shirts off and the bugs seemed more attracted to bare skin. I smartly wore a tank top even though it was 200% humidity. It was just the last 20min or so when it was just Marty (#1) and me that were pretty much unbearable. We saw some people heading out when we were almost done and I wanted to yell, "Don't do it! Turn back now!" but was too busy swatting the flies away.
Then we ran a swim clinic at TAC which went good. We definitely fit a lot of information in those 6 hours! Almost immediately after that we were in Chapel Hill for some dinner with friends. Good times.
This morning we rode with the Ali-(ci/sh)a's and Jerry. Alisha tricked us all and had us ride for 3 hours! It was good though - a nice day out and I got to see a part of the new Triangle course.
My mom has requested some pictures of Tassie. We recently clipped her fur...ourselves! My friend bought some heavy duty fur clippers and I think we did a pretty good job for our first time. This way we won't have to let her grow until sheep status before we get her buzz cut. We can do little in between trims and save some $$. Marty protested, but I had to shave off her mohawk. That thing had gotten too long and knotty and needed to go.
