(Roll Call) Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., announced on Wednesday that she will not seek re-election in 2014. In an 8-minute-long video posted on her website, Bachmann detailed her decision, which she said had nothing to do with the recent investigations into her failed presidential campaign’s finances. “After a great deal of thought and deliberation, I have decided next year, I will not to seek a fifth congressional term,” she said in a straight-to-camera delivery.
What? No claim of wanting to spend more time with her family?
I love a short work week. It was a good holiday weekend. I had fun down in the cities with a special friend. I was able to get my housework completed yesterday. I am ready to face the week. I hope all your weekend plans went well. If not, then I hope that you learned the lesson the challenge was designed to teach.
I took a modified route. Instead of going all the way to Finlayson, I instead turned back north at a road about 4 miles south of Rutledge. It angles slightly to the west of Rutledge, and I then cut east on the Rutledge road. With an 18 mph head wind the first 4 miles, which happens to have a series of hills, I am not surprised that my average speed was down today. However, I can say for certain that I maintained the 25.1 mph max speed for quite some time on a level road.
Once again I am surprised. It was a nice run. With the hills I hit on the way to and from Finlayson I am pleased that I was able to stay with in .2 mph of the first leg’s average speed. All and all a good start to the 2013 season of bicycling. Yes. A very good start.
