I did not race the Lost Valley mountain bike race this past Sunday, either. That was going to be my last mountain bike race of 2012, but I will call the Cape Girardeau race the last one now. My attention is now called toward cyclocross and the Bubba series.
Eli will be 16 years old in less than 10 years. That's when I intend to take racing seriously again. Watch out!

Just went out for a ride with Eli and he took a digger in the middle of the street. He's been riding a lot more aggressively lately and I was afraid that this was coming. Man, I'd take the fall for him if I could, but then again, he has to get up and keep riding on his own. Can't do that for him. And he did ride home on his own. He's a tough guy.

So I present to you Sensible Shoes. My friend Todd may take exception to that term, because he is the past and present owner of THE sensible shoes automobiles. But, I'll take partial ownership of the name and call it good. Since picking this up at the dealership last night, driving through stoplights, subdivisions and on the highway, I'm averaging 31.7mpg. That same little ritual with the Mustang netted about 20mpg. All said and done, I will pocket about $200 a month versus the ownership cost of the convertible.
If you see me driving this gem through your town, just call me Ward.
