This morning Kathleen ran in the Baltimore Womens Classic, so I rode over to spectate (as I do). She left before me, but then I caught her warming up on the bike path by the start on Key Highway. We meandered over to the start, and that was the last time I saw her until after the finish, definitely didn't have my spectating mojo going today.
I cut through Federal Hill to get to the other side of the start as it was a madhouse on Key Highway. On my way over there I passed behind the American Visionary Art Museum, and spotted this whirlygig that I had never noticed before, probably because I usually go by the other side of the building.
Then they were off, while trying to find her in the sea of women I passed by one of the troubadours out on the course.
Eventually I realized that I had completely managed to miss her on course, and she found me after the finish. Here Kathleen is telling me all about the tree there, she is taking a plants class for her degree right now, so she has been spending a lot of time memorizing 150 local plant types. All I remember is that this one is resistant to road salt.
Then it was off to the homestead. Kathleen got cleaned up and started studying, I went back to bed and slept until 1:30 in the afternoon.
Once I got it together I went back out for a spin on the bike, this time at more road bike kind of speeds. I went out to Fort McHenry, then came back via Tide Point. Passing by a row of rail cars at the Domino Sugar plant I noticed that they all had this notification on them. All I could think was why would you want to beat on a rail car with a hammer?
It was hot as hell out, and very humid so I cut it short and headed back to the house again.
