Happy Birthday Dad

Today would have been my dad's 77th birthday. I sometimes think what he'd think of today's world.

I did my first post dengue fever rides this weekend. On Saturday I had no snap in the legs. Probably partly due to fatigue and recover, but also partly due to lack of fuel. Friday night I had a small plate of shrimp-fried rice for dinner, then no breakfast in the morning before riding. Made for weak legs.

Sunday was better. I ate better Saturday night, then had breakfast on Sunday morning before riding. I had one minor dizzy spell after the Fausto Trail. I stood in the shade for a minute or two, drank more water, and I was okay for the rest of the ride. Did a lot more climbing. Legs had more power.

Looking forward to the Christmas break.

12-5 was my father's 77th birthday if he were alive. he died 10 years ago and I was also recently thinking what would he think about where we are headed?

crazy story about the cops wrongly accusing you...scary...people in uniforms do make me nervous....
