Day 6 was a morning trip. I ran down to Redmond to meet Michelle and the kids to apply for their passports. As she documented, we forgot the checkbook so we’ll get to do it again. I found it interesting that I arrived before them, but I’m not sure how useful that observation is. I helped some with getting the kids onto the bike but left before them, assuming that they would get there first. At 3 miles, perhaps it doesn’t leave enough time for the bike to catch up. Also, Michelle is much more cautious than most when descending (precious cargo!). Regardless, I got a chance to sit outside and enjoy the morning. (personal care?)
We were timing the trip so that I could hit a meeting time exactly, so I was left with an awkward amount of time. The meeting was a few blocks away from my office, so if I went there I would just have enough time to turn around. I decided to stop at the Redmond Super Jock ‘n Jill to see what new stuff they had and to ask about GPS watches. My observation from this trip is that I would not have made this stop if I had a car parked by the courthouse.
Next I ran up the 520 hill to work. A few surges revealed that the legs weren’t fully there yet, but that I would probably be good for a quality workout the next day.
(Indeed, I ran a successful workout on Day 7, which I biked to and from, so not much to report for Errundonnee purposes.)
