Hmm, my last post didn't

Real quickly, my last post was not posted for some reason. Anyway, I'm in Austin. So far it's way better than I ever thought it could be in every way. I'm still unpacking and getting used to my surroundings, but other than that, I feel like I've been here before. It's a really comfortable place for me. So far, but if you're not uncomfortable in the beginning, I doubt it'll become so.

So I've gotten out on my bike a few times. Nothing like finding your way around by trial and error. On a bike. On a hot and muggy day. Well, hot to me, anyway. But I went to a training race today, and though traffic kept me from getting there on time, I was able to go out on the course and let the race catch up to me. It was quite a fun race. I love the course, it suits me perfectly, and I ended up 5th. With the lack of miles in my legs it was a good confidence builder. especially when the other guys were like "let the guy on the green bike chase him down" every time an attack went up the road. I put a few good ones in, too. I'll be there next week, and all the Tuesdays thereafter.

Lost has been amazing, as always. I guess there are some of us lucky to live fairytales once in awhile. And tomorrow's my birthday. Yay!!

Mike, I was wondering what that was called! I told your lady love that we have "some kind of track thingy that you can ride bikes on, you know, like the Olympics?"
