I went for a ride

Yesterday I decided to go up a hill
I saw this guy going up as I was going back down. He waved, I waved back.
I decided to ride it again today
I saw him again.
But he was riding with some other guys, so he didn't wave. Some of them did, though.
I stopped at the top to get my breath, and saw this guy.
I descended with him and a couple of other riders for a while. I asked him, "So, you going to the big show next year?" He replied, "The Tour?" I acknowledged, and he returned, "It looks like it right now. It's a ways off, so I have some time..." I told him that was awesome, and good job. I'm a dork.
Then I saw this guy again, on his way back up.

He was riding with a team mate from: Today's ride was better, but my legs were a little tired from the thrashing they took yesterday. Still, today was faster. Lots more pros out, too! I stopped at the bottom and talked to a dude for a while, chatting about the course. Nice guy; I hope he does well on Sunday.

That's too cool! I saw some of the pros today on the time trial course on my way to lunch.

Lisa, if you had a facebook page - you'd see what I put up for my status yesterday. Since you don't, I'll tell you here - "Mendy is excited to watch the USA Cycling Championship this weekend riding on roads I frequently cycle on. Woo hoo! Time to watch David get all giddy".

See, giddy. Funny you used that too. BTW, get a facebook page chica. I want to send you Office flair.
