#337 And He's Down!

Whew!  What a weekend.  The swim on Saturday generated interest from the local Green Bay station which was all before the big Packer win on Sunday so maybe I brought them good luck.  Watch this brief episode garnered from my Lake Wingra swim in June.  NBC26 Green Bay

Biking on Sunday with 3000 people--13 of them good friends--was full of fun and food.  If you ever get the chance to the Door County Century Ride (in my case--half century)--do it.  Every 15 miles or so we were greeted with abundant amounts of chow stops--more than you can imagine so by the time you are done, the spaghetti feed at the end puts you over the top on stuffing your face.  So much for burning calories on biking.  Regardless of the feeding frenzy, the scenery was breathtaking and the weather for the day more than made up for the sore bottoms that we all seemed to share.

The entire ride was somewhat uneventful until Rob crossed the finish line after biking 70 miles.  Let's just say his finish and the Tour de France finisher have nothing in common--except maybe wearing a red shirt.

Rob in the red shirt. Nancy is trying to catch him.

This is not Rob but what he wished he looked like at the end.

Thanks for reading #337 of 7777.
