Eat Mor Chikin

We, yet again, attended another Chick-fil-A first 100 opening. For those of you who don’t know, Chick-fil-A gives away 52 free meals for the first 100 customer who check in the day before opening and sleeps overnight in the restaurant parking lot. Our first, first 100 opening was at Jordan Landing in November 2008 and we only have one coupon left from that opening, but now Nick and I are 105 free meals rich! I checked in at 51 and Nick was 67. It was well worth it and I didn’t even mind the snow, except for the fact that it’s the end of April and we are still getting snow. There were 16 of us total who attended and we’re already ready for the next opening. Eat Mor Chikin!

Playing Settlers of Catan. I don't even remember who won, but we later played Nurtz and Yatchzee and I won both those games. Willy, Brian, Nick, me, Sue and Mike (not pictured) eating dinner at the new West Valley Chick-fil-A.

Killer Ride

Today we went out on another ride for Mariah's training. We had a great time on this ride, until we headed back home!! The head wind was so strong. It tooks us at least 30 minutes longer to ride home then it did the first half. Needless to say we finally finished and were quite tired. We wanted to play tennis after our ride but it was not happening after this ride. Instead we ate an entire pizza by ourselves right when we got home (I had five pieces and Mariah had three). We must have been hungry because two hours after that we had dinner and ate lots again! Even though it was quite hard this time we really enjoy this hobby we have together and look forward to many great rides.

The following is the elevation of the route we went on. Gotta love big ol' hills!

Mariah's Training for a Century Ride

Towards the latter end of last year Mariah and I got into cycling. We have really enjoyed having this hobby together. We love spending some of our free time out on the road in the great Utah scenery, whether it is around our home or down in St. George. Well, one thing led to another and now Mariah is training for a century ride (100 miles). Since it is much easier to train with a buddy I will be training with Mariah so that she can be ready for the Little Red Ridding Hood century ride that will take place in Logan in June. It is fun to be able to see the rides we go on so I figure I will post them on here so you can see them as well. This week we haven't had any good luck with the weather so we haven't been able to ride outside so I have decided to post our ride from last week.
Here is my workout summary of the ride we went on:
