171 Days to Go
OK, so that three-hour bike ride planned for New Year's Day? That'll have to happen later. Thank goodness there will be many opportunities before the race rolls around.
Today got started a little late, on account of some New Year's Eve festivities, and before you knew it, it was time to head out to my sister's for a dinner featuring ham and many desserts—crème brule, cinnamon buns and an assortment of chocolate truffles from Belgium, France and Oregon. It was great. But Coeur d'Alene wasn't completely forgotten! No, that's because in the evening we headed out to watch my nephew Chris and the River City Jaguars take on the Coeur d'Alene Lakers in Northern Pacific Hockey League action. We couldn’t stay for the whole thing, but felt pretty confident with the good guys up 3-0 when we left. That's got to bode well for me come June in CDA, right?
