It’s time for another running update. Honestly, there’s not much to report. I’ve been lazy of late…not even walking that much at work. I have, however, put on over 8 miles to get me over the 75 mile mark.
Now, as you can see (or maybe you can’t), I’ve arrived at the Dale/Huntingburg exit on I-64 in southwestern Indiana. This used to be a favored stopping point of mine on trips to Terre Haute, Vincennes, etc. There was a gas station here and a convenience store. I haven’t been through here in some time, so I don’t know what’s there now…but there used to always be construction at this exit. Anyway, now for your Dale factoid:
Founded in 1843, Dale was originally called Elizabeth and was renamed for Robert Dale Owen of New Harmony, the town’s congressman at the time. Actress Florence Henderson of “The Brady Bunch” was born in Dale and President Abraham Lincoln was raised on a nearby farm. His mother, Nancy Hanks Lincoln, is buried on that farm site. As well, there is only one stop-light in Dale.
So there you go. I finally made it to someplace that had something interesting going on. Of course, it’ll probably be another 75 miles before I get something else interesting.
In other news, yea though I bemoan the fact that I have not been running, my biking prowess has increased. Over the course of the weekend, I put 35 miles on the bike. My butt is killing me and the rest of my body aches, but it was some gorgeous weather in which to ride. Also, for TAFKAA and SV of Northpeak…we did some hills on those rides and training is slow, but it’s coming along. The pics look great by the way.
I’ve also been meaning to get some pics of me in my bike gear because I know that you of the InterTubes and Webranet are dying to see them. Maybe soon I’ll have a photo shoot and get some shots of me decked out in my bike regalia.
Check out the movie review page as it has been updated heavily. Everything else…not so much.
See you in the funny papers!
