I swear, I wasn't going to write another post about what a great workout I had today... so that's not what this post is about... but I just can't go without mentioning the bike ride that Kristen and I had today... the one where, for the first time in cycling history, we had a tailwind both ways on an out and back ride. Seriously, it's never happened like that before, but I swear we had such a huge tailwind on the way out and I was sure that we were really in for it coming home... and it sucked for maybe 5 miles straight into a really stiff wind... but then suddenly we were flying along without a care in the world! One time after a successful stage in the Tour de France George Hincapie was quoted as saying something about having to look down at his chain to make sure it was still on because he couldn't even feel it... that's how Kristen and I felt today! She actually said, "This is the best day ever!" and I totally agreed. So fast. So easy. Nice and sunny ride along the coast of Oahu. Ok. I'll stop now about the awesome workout.
What this post is really about now... Rachel called today and said she was going down to Kailua Beach to stalk Barack Obama... she wanted to meet Moana... and I thought that Moana should really meet Barack... so off to the beach we went!
We weren't allowed to be too close to the house where they were staying... but this was the scene. Those two guys standing there without their bathing suits on didn't let anyone pass. Barack wasn't even there. But Sasha and Malia were running around and playing. And there were a bunch of people hanging out trying to get a glimpse. I have no shame. I was there too.
I'm really hoping that some of Rachel's running genes were transferred to Moana today.
Moana enjoyed herself at the beach... wide eyed... looking around.
She had a cool view to look at.
