Am) was Walker Ranch which from home is 15 miles round trip. Fun and relaxed watching the sunrise over Denver, happy to be 40 miles and a couple thousand feet higher (removed) from the city. We had a bit of snow last night and there was a dusting on the road.
Pm) I spent the day out with the boys and my girl. We went to an all you can eat salad bar and I gorged myself on spinach and French onion soup. It's actually really tough to fill up on these two things. 12 bowls of French onion soup is about 3.2 calories and you burn about 100 calories eating 80 calories of spinach. We eat out at restaurants maybe once a month and when we do it's often a salad bar. Eating genetically engineered cow lips and assholes from a burger joint makes me throw up in my mouth a little bit which to me is more appetizing and certainly more healthy (true story... when I was a kid I worked on a cattle ranch and we had a cow with a gigantic tumor on it's head the size of a football. The slaughter house took it no problem. It almost certainly ended up in a hamburger). But I digest. When we got home I made a double Kenyan black tea/ green tea with sucanat and headed out to Shimley road again. 11 miles with 2100ft of climbing. 26 miles on the day and a crap load of vertical. Had to be close to 5000ft of climbing.
