You can't radically change the requirements by fiat and demand the same timelines. Let's just say, the USG was an untrustworthy partner.


Was your company's contract with HHS (BARDA-Bioshield) or DOD?

HHS. I think it was the first contract of its kind NIH had ever done. It showed. Their approach was adversarial and capricious.

Just 2 of us rode 47 miles today without a lot of climbing. My other friend tested positive, so he's out for a while, and his wife stayed home with him. She'll probably be positive but so far tested negative. He has mild symptoms.

Anyway it was in the high 90s by the time we finished so that part kinda sucked.

Kudos for the climbing. I just plotted tomorrow's ride, and it's 55 miles and not even 3000 feet of climbing.

We didn't climb much today, probably around 2000 feet. We were both a little tired. Me from riding on the weekend, him from hiking and not being used to hiking.

I might be nuts, but my ideal ride is >100 feet per mile. Anything less feels too easy.

Not normal??

All I can say is, I can't even remember what 140 lbs feels like so I'm not qualified to answer.

Go faster, then.

I used to feel that way. Not that anything less was too easy, that can be remedied by chasing fast people. But I always enjoyed those long climbing rides. There is a route we did quite often in the summer which was 80 miles and about 8K feet. Traffic was light or non existent when the road was gated and most of the route is above 5000 foot elevation. Those were the days.

I used to always say the climbing rides were easier than the fast rides because when climbing all day I would just settle in to my pace and the faster people would wait anyway. On the faster rides with less climbing I would be at redline the whole time trying to limit losses and not get totally dropped.

The president of one of the clubs I ride with raises butterflies. Here is one of her babies.

Iíve never been to the opera in my life. I got the final Jeopardy! question after seeing only the category, which was Opera. Lost count of how many times Iíve done that. At least a half dozen. The answer was:
