I took a nice solo ride out in the Texas Hill Country today. I was able to get out early so I could avoid the hottest part of the day.

This photo doesn't do justice to the headwind on the way out today. It was blowing hard and sustained.

A big fire came through the area recently. It is unfortunate, because it is a pretty area in the summer months.

Birth place of Lyndon B. Johnson and home to Lady Bird Johnson until her recent death.

Now a few shout outs. The first to Fabian Cancellara who took Bronze in the Olympic road race yesterday. Holy shit! Did you see him bridge the gap to the leaders? That was freakin' awesome. For those of you who have tried to bridge gaps before, you know how incredibly hard it is. He made it look easy.

The second shout out is to my teammate Jeremy Humble who won the Texas Individual Time Trial Championship in fine fashion by setting a state record for Cat. 5. His time of 56:43 for 40K was damn impressive.

Several Subjects

1) My wife went to visit her friend in Minneapolis over the weekend so it was just me and the boys. We had a good time. Our main staples were pancakes, waffles, and pizza.

2) We are approaching 50 days this year over 100 degrees in Austin. The weather the past week has been nothing short of ridiculous. On my training ride on Friday all I wanted to do was curl up under a guardrail and die. It is just brutal.

3) My new favorite show MANswers has done a scientific study to determine which animal is most like having sex with a woman. The answer - the Dugong. Apparently they were favorites of ancient sailors. Let me get this straight, it is like having sex with a woman, but without the complaining?? What is the downside? HA!
