Headed down Legacy to look for some 'geocaches' along the path. Found one in Farmington another one in NSL. Found some good spots to hide more. Headed home and went past the Bountiful pond and out to the bird refuge. Took the long way back. Hooked back up with Legacy at Glover's lane.

I've been pretty lazy lately since making my 90 day mark. This morning decided to get back on the bike. Headed to Farmington and rode legacy down to NSL end of pavement then back to the Bountiful pond turn off. Detoured there and headed west and thru the bird refuge. Back to Farmington thru the west side of town.

17 September 2009

Went out tonight to ride the Legacy Parkway, only when I got to the Bountiful Pond turn off decided to go check it out. Figured it might add an extra mile to the ride. Got to the pond, rode around it, then saw a dirt road headed west and took it. Kept going west and then turned north and ended up back at the Farmington Bird Refuge. Back to the parking lot and the truck.

Tonight's Miles - 18.3 Miles

12 September 2009

After a couple days this week with the flu, I'm not sure if it was the heat of the day or the hangover from being sick, but I did not have much strength as I started a bike ride down Legacy Parkway about 2:00 pm. Nothing eventful happened until about 2 miles from the finish.

First I saw 'him.' Then in the exact same instant, I felt wings buzzing, tasted pollen, and felt the tip of my tongue explode with intense pain. By the time I wiped him out of my mouth with my fingers, I knew this frail existence was about to end. OH the PAIN ! With in minutes every tooth felt like a tooth ache and the front half of my tongue was numb. I kept checking my breathing to see if anaphylactic shock was beginning to happen. It wasn't the last time I'd checked....

By the time I made it back to to my vehicle I was beginning to believe this would not be my last moments but that I'd live to ride the Legacy again. Though the truck's mirror reflected a big ugly brown bump the size of a half BB, which I carefully picked off and drove home. Do you know how hard it is to pick a stinger off of a numb tongue while looking in the rear view mirror. Oh the horror....

Today's Miles (minus the drama) - 25.4 Miles

8 September 2009

After a full day's work in Hansen's basement, and helping Dave Woodbury figure out his electrical problems in his garage, I went to unwind on Legacy. The sun was already down when I started. Made it to NSL before needing a light but just barely. Rode back to Farmington in pitch black. Ran into the mosquito abatement crew on the path back. phew
