Room was supposed to be all mine for whatever I wanted when we bought the house. When I finally started turning my attention to how I was going to set things up (paint, TVs, sound, etc.), I was advised it was "needed" for "temporary" art storage. Now it's her home studio (even the kids have a section) to go with the studio we pay rent for elsewhere. She insisted I haul that old mountain bike from her mom's and set it up next to mine so she can ride. I am pretty sure it's never been used, but the two times I have moved it out of the way I have been told to bring it back.
Oh well, she has left me the corner at least for now. Better than the freezing garage.
BTW - that's the clearest walking path from the doors to the bike that I have seen in months. She had to ship some pieces today so the paintings that were there must have been sent. It will soon be littered with pieces/supplies I am sure to get footprints or sweat on in the near future. Thank goodness I can still blame the kids.
As of this moment, @Martin is likely going to take it. If I run it at this point, it will only be out of spite to prevent his victory. As of Monday we were supposed to have snow, now the temp is looking ok but there will be a 16-20 mph headwind most the way likely ending a chance at sub 1:30.
The real reason this is likely not going to happen is outdoor family pictures were rescheduled from today (22 mph winds with a 'feels like" of 28 F) to Sunday mid-morning. Even if I run a 1:30 it would be difficult to make it back in time for the pictures. I'll try to see what I can do to make it happen, but as of now the eye roll response I got when suggesting a later/different time tells me it's a no go.
@EmilyCocks well we now know - Javi is focused on worlds and the "old" guy remembered how to race/run this weekend. Murray was only seconds faster on the run after sitting in for the better part of the bike. Can't wait to not be able to watch any good coverage of 70.3 Worlds now.
