My cycling training route has been under construction for 6 months or so. It seems that they have finalized the new bike path... The new paved path was nice and smooth and I was really enjoying it until I hit the freeway and was almost blown over by the cars cruising along beside me at 80 miles an hour 15 feet away.

Is it just me or does this seem dangerous?

Bike, Swim, Run - Nephew!

This week:

Biked 100+ miles (not sure how many because my mileage counter malfunctioned :-( )on the Santa Ana River Trail (SART). I actually pulled my iPhone out of its protective case which was strapped to my bike while going very fast just to snap this photo of The Man and His Amazing Hound. I don't know why but I found them both fascinating and I love this photograph.
I didn't drop my phone thankfully.

Swam 4050 meters in the confirmed 50 meter pool. The life guard showed me a great way to count my laps! The lanes are made up of hundreds of those red plastic round things on a rope. You can use them to make a crude counter of your lengths or laps. Very cool.

Ran (?) I didn't even count. I love running in Brea, it is so much cleaner than where I used to run. Those trees are all orange trees and the oranges are delicious!

Baby Ivan was finally born! I got to witness his mom go into labor this past Wednesday... 20 minutes after she began contracting he was born - - without any Epidural or even Advil. She made it to the hospital in time but had to birth him on a gurney as he came before she could make it into a bed. I love kids but after seeing this I am not keen on having any anytime soon. Welcome to earth baby!

At home with brother the very next day.
