bike commute | Foster Island lunch run

Super weather today! The sun was out and my long sleeve shirt on the lunch run was too much. I like that.

Unfortunately my hip is still not happy at all. In retrospect I should have not run today... we went nice and slow and even walked a couple of times but I still didn't feel like this did my body any favors. Suck! Being injured is a massive drag. Still, Foster Island is so pretty, it was great to be out here.
I ran with Brad Coston and as we went under all the new 520 bridge construction he told me all about American Piledriving Equipment. Turns out they have some revolutionary technology and it sounds really green to me. They vibrate stuff into the ground instead of just pounding it. And I think Brad said all the hydraulics are filled with linseed oil making leaks a relative non-issue. This is the kind of progress I love.

Walking around the UW campus I see tons of bikes. I also see lots of victims of bike theft. Boo.



I also see some crazy bikes, like this one. Is that name supposed to appeal to customers?
