Happy Independence Day! While we celebrate our freedom today, we also thank all of those who serve and have served for their dedication!
We are at something like day 6 of this 90+ degree heat wave. Rumor has it there will be storms Thursday night to finally break the heat, but the weekend will still be in the 80's. If it were just a little less humid...
I got up at 6am this morning to get my bike ride it. When I opened the door- the rush of heat and humidity took my breath away! It was already over 80 degrees!
I had some trouble (again) with my new tire pump for my bike. I swear the thing lets out more air then it lets in. So, a new (read: expensive) pump is in the plan for tomorrow. It was 6:30 before I got my bike ready to ride; of course cursing myself for not taking the time to do it the night before when I knew I would be pressed for time this morning. My late start required me to shorten the scheduled ride to 45 minutes. :( But, I actually left time to stretch and cool down before hitting the shower!
The rest of my 4th was spent with friends; Flying Pancake Breakfast, Taste of Chanhassen, Chan Parade and Eden Prairie Fireworks. A good day indeed. However, I will say spending nearly all day outside was tough. The break between the parade
