Centenarian Completes Metric Century, Sets Record on Velodrome, 300 Laps, 14.4 Miles per Hour Average

Well just in case we needed to be inspired (or depressed?), a guy over 100 years old skated his age in km at a velodrome in Lyon, France in just over four hours and seventeen minutes. This is good stuff! This is good news for a rainy afternoon with no outdoor skating likely on this day, with a2a.net 87 miles of skating less than 9 days away. I'll be slower than the oldest people out there, I'm sure! Some of those dudes are fast! But I am looking forward to it. My Forerunner 305, however, is showing signs of not wanting to be awake that long at one stretch. A fix, hopefully, is on next week's agenda.

USA Cyclist Levi Leipheimer Takes Vuelta (Tour of Spain) Fifth Stage ITT and GC Lead

Now, something to cheer about! You never know about people really, but I've seen Levi in person and on streaming video and I can tell you there were awesome performances, but nothing that seemed "unbelievable," like some other performances I've seen. I'll never know if Levi is clean, just like I thought it was certain that others were, but seeing Levi almost but not quite do it several times leads me to believe in him. Having said that, joining Astana and linking with some I've begun to doubt still makes me wonder, which is sad.
