This morning I finished getting my bike ready for Lotoja. Two new tires (Michelin Pro 3 Race, in case you're wondering), which I am a bit nervous about since that's the same tire I sliced open ten days ago. Installed the new chain even though the old one was not even showing 0.75% wear even with 2500 miles on it. Cleaned everything up, including removing the cranks to get the gunk out of the bottom bracket area and apply some fresh lube.

On Monday I found my arm warmers and yesterday I remembered the place that was going to be easy for me to remember where I put the batteries to my HRM, so I don't even need to spend my time looking for misplaced items.

Now all I have to do is wait. Today is a rest day, so I'm not even going to go out and ride. Thankfully I at least had a job interview this morning to give me something to think about besides not riding my bike.
