I hate the rain

So, what was to be the highlight of my week has been canceled due to the weather.  Our wetter than normal (so far) April has turned the bike trails into soup.  Funny thing was, I was on the trail yesterday and it was 95% dry.

I guess I shouldn't be too surprised.  Prior to this week, I had been commuting by bike 4 out of 5 days a week. But this week started out with a chance for snow, then rain, a nice day yesterday (60 and sunny) and now rain again.  Other than riding the trails yesterday, I hadn't been on the bike all week.  Still sucks though.

Also, I was going to be debuting my new duds.  The extremely thoughtful wife picked up some new riding gear.  I have now have a long-sleeve Oakley jersey, a Zoic short-sleeve jersey and Zoic mountain bike shorts.  Ok, so I wore the Oakley jersey and shorts yesterday - couldn't go out looking like a total doofus.  Oh, and they were very nice - puts all of my old stuff to shame.  Thank you honey!

All of this means I have to wait another 3 weeks for the next race.  Hopefully this year it'll be a little warmer and a lot less windy at Winona Lake.
