Where do people go for news about things that happen in and around Liberty? I heard someone was killed last night in a collision with a train in Liberty, so I looked at all the sites I could think of - WGHP, digtriad.com, Courier-Tribune, News and Record, and nothing. I even checked out the Liberty Leader, but I don't know why. It's a bi-monthly paper publication, but, hey guys, you have a website - you could put local stuff on it daily. If anyone out there knows what happened - send it over. Maybe this blog should become the place to go to for local news.
At last, Saturday I rode on the road. The weather was ten degrees cooler than the Weather Channel promised, the wind was a bit stronger, and it was misting, but it was a nice ride. I got in 36 miles. I am getting closer to the fitness level I had last year before having to stop riding due to asthma caused by, of all things, a building related illness (try convincing your employer that their building is making you sick - HA!). Sunday I stayed in and rode the trainer for 30 miles. It was warm enough out there, and I don't mind riding in the rain, in fact I kind of like it, but the 15 to 25 mph wind talked me out of it. The trainer does give a good indication of any improvement in fitness, since all the variables are controlled. This 30 mph workout averaged a full .6 mph faster than last weekend's, at less effort, so there may well be some benefit to the torture.
Well, it's Christmas Eve, and I'd better wrap some presents.
