What kind of an idiot

puts on his shorts and a hoodie and his vibrams to go for a bike ride when it is barely 50 degrees outside just because the sun is shining brightly? Never mind, don't answer.

Pastor Weedon, you are turning way too much into Calvin's dad (from Calvin and Hobbes).

Rev. John Frahm said...

Plenty of upper Midwestern people and Coloradoans do that regularly.

Sounds good to this guy from Nevada! Where are we headed?

Chris said...

Just out of curiousity, are you that "idiot?" :)

A Minnesotan

The bike ride at 50 degrees (or less) is done here, too, though not by me. It's easier to 'park' a bike on campus.
But the "barefoot" running shoes...you ride a bike with them?

William Weedon said...

Sure did, Helen. They're just comfortable. I ran today down to Hamel and back - 4.5 miles or so.

I think I've seen that same idiot run the road between Saint Paul's and the town of Hamel without a shirt when it's not much warmer.

And, trust me... no one needs to see that. ;-)

William Weedon said...

I DID toy with losing the shirt, but it was just a tad TOO cold. But it won't be long...

Pr. Lehmann said...

Oy. I love Hamel, but that makes me glad (for the moment) that I don't live there.

Kristi has said to me more than once, "Does he have to make us look at that?"

William Weedon said...

Hey, now. No one HAS to look. :)

Pr. Lehmann said...

You want her to just drive off the road while she's going to school???

William Weedon said...

The road? Charlie, you are WAY behind the times. I only run on the road behind the school to get to the bike trail and then I run on that. I wouldn't even THINK of trying to run down frontage road.

A Minnesotan indeed. When I lived there, one didn't bother wirh a light jacket until it was below freezing, or a coat until is was sub-zero!

Pastor Weedon,

Let us know how you are enjoying the Vibrams... and how they feel while running. I'm curious.

Tim,

So far, loving them. I ran 5 miles in them this a.m.
