Hard Training Day

Wednesday was a hard training day.  On some Wednesdays, when I'm not working, I meet up with some of my friends in Peachtree City for a long ride which is sometimes followed by a short run.  Two of them, Chad and Jared, will also be doing the 2013 Ironman Florida triathlon in November.  John is a hard charging Beck Cycling team racer and de facto leader of the group.  Tom is training for Ironman Wisconsin.  Martha races for the Beck team as well but says she's not training for anything which begs the question, what the heck are you doing here?

The six of us set out at 8am.  The pre-ride chatter was for a 120 mile ride.

John took this picture - it's a selfie!

We made a quick stop at a convenience store for more food, drinks, and use of the facilities.

These two were expressing great affection for each other as we rode by.  They stopped when the camera came out.
I don't know if these are donkeys or mules but I'm pretty sure that they thought I was gonna give them some food.
We ended the ride with almost 100 miles in the books.  That's pretty good for a Wednesday ride.  The best part is that I didn't wreck all day.

Thanks for reading.
