Mountain Biking (Single Track) 1:31:00 [3] 13.5 km (8.9 kph) +242m

Late night mountain bike ride on Palgrave single track - following Storm and Simpy on a leg of Storm The Bruce while chatting their ears off. (That's part of a pacer's job!) This is Sean Roper's 100-mile trail run from Hockley to Home (Milton), which he is doing to raise money for the Bruce Trail - and to add a little more adventure to 2020.

It took me a while to find them in the dark since they were farther ahead than their GPS tracks showed, and we missed each other when they took a slight wrong turn.

Earlier in the evening after he started running from Hockley, Browner and the pooches came to our place for pizza by the fire pit. Simpy biked from his finish point and joined us briefly before they headed off to his start. This was a test of cool weather outdoor socializing - not nearly as cold as it's going to get. We are going to need some heavy outdoor blankets, I think. The fire pit alone doesn't cut it. It was fine for tonight though.

BazingaDog was thrilled to have guests. He'd been out of sorts today because 'Bent took AdventureDog on a canoe trip in Algonquin Park with two retired dentists. His friend sent a packing list that included "One dog, medium".

Highlights of a busy week:

1) They've finalized the leaderboard of the Summer Scavenger Hunt and I finished 194th of 2210 participants. It's not UTMB or Eco-Challenge but hey, I'll take it in 2020.

2) Not to brag - I just want to share valuable scientific research. I hit my lowest weight of the year yesterday after eating half a dozen pecan butter tarts in 3 days while cleaning Tree Hugger ABC 1.0 before the deal closed. There's been no time for exercise over the past week so clearly my strategy has been wrong all along. You're welcome!
