I have been sitting in the same spot for the past 5 hours. I woke up early today and since have read everything I could lay my hands on. Wiki is addictive. I really don’t know how accurate the information is but it is a good way to spend time. It has been a good weekend so far. I drove down a couple of hours down to suburban Philly yesterday. Met up with my buddy gawker. He was kind enough to make me an omelette which was spicy and I paid the price for it later in the day.
Anyways, we drove into Skippack village and then took the Perkiomen trail. It was a lot tougher than the 35 mile bike ride that we did last season. The trail took us through town homes, horse farms, power lines, forest and towns. It was a lot of ups and downs and more ups. It was about 16 miles in total and it was great fun. We finished it in a couple of hours. This summer, I will make sure that I do as many different things as possible. Biking, kayaking, rafting and some running. We are planning to go down to India in August and I would like to lose a few pounds. I don’t want to put a number to it as I tend to disappoint myself every freaking time. Pennsylvania is a very strange state. You get to see the whole spectrum of nature in a radius of 3 miles. It was an awesome day. It started off in the low 50s but the sun was beating down on us which made it comfortable. After these work outs, you tend to be thirsty. Gawker and I decided to go to this micro brewery where they make their own beer. We drank well and ate well too hence over compensating for the calories burnt.
I am back after spending the day watching TV, getting plenty of Andhra styled biryani, watching UCONN lose in the final four in the women’s NCAA, plenty of damn laundry and dinner.
Tomorrow is a very important day. There are a large group of companies that are part of a volley ball league. A bunch of misfits got together and made our team and we aren’t that bad. For me, it’s loads of fun as I never really played the sport while I was growing up. It does build camaraderie which is the main goal. Anyways, we have ended up in the final four and I am pretty sure we are going to get squashed tomorrow. I have to get my sleep.
