Had a big decision today. Ride to work in the rain, wear my crummy at work clothes for a meeting with a client who is building an 8 figure home I designed and risk having to run back home in a borrowed car to meet with the code enforcement officer at our house at some point today (so we can get a $6500 tax rebate when we get our certificate of occupancy)? Or, drive to work in my pimpy "meeting clothes" and have a nice, dry mode of transport back and forth to the house if necessary. Some times you need to come up with total bullshit rationalizations to not ride in the rain. Today? I had a rock solid excuse. Thank you very much.
Last week's post on shoenanigans (get it?!?!) I mentioned being in the market for a new pair of mtb shoes. My lakes are totally shot. Pretty much unusable now. I was hemming and hawing between Shimano's M230 and Pearl Izumi's Elite MTBII. KillBill told me that that PI sucks it. Sucks it big time. So I've pulled the trigger on the M230's. Hopefully, with their heat moldable soles I'll finally have a shoe that I love and can live with.
