Bike, Golf, and Tennis

Phil, Jamie, and I went on a 10.36 mile bike ride around Hoover. We started out in the Preserve, went out to Star Lake and rode around there, and finally ended up going through the Preserve and back to my house. It was really weird......at several points in the ride, we picked up random bikers to ride in our pack, and it almost felt like a pick-up basketball game. A guy would join us for a few miles, leave, and then someone else would show up. I guess Thursday evenings are prime time for riding.

After biking, we headed to Phil's to hit golf balls into his new, MASSIVE net. I tried out his new Taylor Made irons and driver, and they are sweet. I'd say I probably hit around 30 to 40 balls, comparable to a small bucket at the range. As if we had not done enough physical activity today, we then headed to Birchtree to play some tennis. We didn't actually play a real game and keep score, but we just volleyed back and forth trying to hit crazy shots.

I have to be up in 4 hours and 40 minutes, so I should probably get to sleep. However, this was quite the common situation this past Spring, when I almost always got to bed between midnight and 1 a.m. while having to get up at 5 a.m. for crew practice. However, I am not suggesting in any way that it will be easy, or that I enjoy doing it.

That's actually pretty funny about the bikers coming and going. It's got an element of Forrest Gump as well as the Nike commercial in it.
