OK…I know I haven’t posted as frequently as usual. Things are just crazy at work and…well…believe it or not, I now have a ladyfriend (and that is all I will say about that…don’t want to get too personal here)…so my blogging time has been limited.
Unfortunately, I fell short of my cycling goal of 200 miles during July and August…the weather during the final week just didn’t cooperate with me. I still plan on getting the last 40 miles in, though.
My running was sidetracked this week, too. But I did get back to it Saturday with a two-mile run…and I followed that up yesterday with a three-mile run that I finished in 27 minutes, 11 seconds. I’ll probably go on another three-mile run shortly after I finish up this post.
After my run yesterday, I decided to head down to Citizens Bank Park to take in the doubleheader between the Phillies and Braves. The Phillies split the two games, winning the first game 8-7 by scoring two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning off Atlanta closer Bob Wickman. I was able to see Phillies starting pitcher Jamie Moyer—son-in-law of Rider alumnus and ESPN college basketball analyst Digger Phelps—turn in a solid outing in the opener, but the real star of the day was Phillies slugger Ryan Howard, who hit three home runs (No. 50, 51 and 52 on the season) in the game-one victory.
Well, I should start heading to the track for my run. I have a busy day ahead of me.
