I Live in Iowa: Week 215

The week that was started off in South Dakota. I tried climbing Spire 4 of the Cathedral Spires, but after getting 30 feet up the first actual pitch (second real pitch) I was scared of falling, so I retreated, and went for a 38 mile bicycle ride and five mile run. Then I went to my friends wedding, and there are pictures on Facebook for evidence.

Monday saw me squeeze in another bicycle ride before the 11 hour drive back to Dubuque, via supper with my grandparents in Minnesota. For the record, Greyhound Gulch road is not a road bicycling short cut! It's not even an easy four wheel drive road. There was a van stuck in the middle of the road.

The work week was thankfully uneventful. No emergency trips to Arkansas or Louisiana. However, we are beginning a new phase of manufacturing, so I will be spending more time in the Davenport factory in the coming month. It starts next week. Of course I won't say much, but it will certainly be interesting.

Saturday I went for a 16 mile run, my longest in a long time, perhaps in 2015. Then a 14 mile bicycle ride and out to dinner with friends. We decided at 8:45 PM to go to the local Jason Derulo concert that started at 8 PM, at the county fair. He is a pretty big name in Top 40/Popular music having had hits for 5-6 years now. I had never been to a concert like this before, there were backup dancers, only a drummer and a DJ, no one else played music, and there were a lot of high school kids. It's so different listening to music in my car, versus seeing what kind of people a musician brings out to a concert. I took some pictures for proof:
