Except cats. I can always write about cats.

It started at 7:30 . . .
It was still dark . . .
This is waaaaaay too close to swimmers' territory . . .
The only people who start bike rides at 7:30 on a Saturday morning are people with kids. There is a reason I don't have kids. Ok several . . . well let's just move on. I joined in with the group ride for about 90 minutes before departing to do my own set of intervals. I took advantage of the male dominated pee break to make like a tree. 12 miles later they caught me, womp womp. Luckily I was able to finish off my last round of intervals before enjoying another hour by my lonesome. I ran THE Greenway (which is just the THE Greenway b/c it is the only one in town) as well as THE Ravenel. I visited all of my favorite restaurants and enjoyed a really nice dinner at Il Cortile Del Ray, a local Italian restaurant I never had the chance to enjoy while I lived there. On Sunday I took a chance with the weather and lost miserably. I spent 90 minutes of my ride in the rain. With one more run to do I took advantage of a break in the rain to go for a short run. I once again lost that bet. Feeling defeated, I got in my car and drove back to Charlotte soaking wet.
I have not been doing much cooking at home but I did finally try Bang Bang Burger. I am not impressed. In fact, in no world should a meatless burger cost more than a beef burger. I ordered the black bean burger. If it weren't for the pickles the whole thing would have had zero flavor. The fries, however, were excellent. I will go back and try the mushroom burger . . . just so I can order some more fries.
