rain, rain, go away…or not

mileage at the end of the day: 438
what a great way to hit the 400 mile mark. i was riding in to work, and as it rolled to 400 i was curving around mecom fountain looking at the statue of sam houston on his horse, a tree-lined road in front of me with the park and zoo ahead of me to my left and the tree and ivy-laden boundaries of rice to my right.
today was supposed to be partly cloudy and no rain. but i needed to buy rain gear for the upcoming trip, so after work i rode over to stubb’s on telephone road. got there about 15 minutes before they close, so i quickly tried on some rain gear and bought it. the clouds were somewhat dark and it had sprinkled on me a bit, so i kept them on when i left. lo and behold, on my ride from there to kaveh kanes it started to rain. pretty cool how the timing on that worked out…first time it rains on me on the bike and i just bought and was wearing rain gear. after kaveh kanes i went and ate (late) at doneraki’s on westheimer. my advice is to not eat a lot of mexican food really late at night and then go to bed.
