It's Amgen Day!!

We've been looking forward to today for a few months now. Today, Stage 3 of the Amgen bike tour is coming by our house!! Our neighborhood will be completely shut in from 1-3 as the tour passes us on 2 sides.  After years of riders requesting to "be able to climb Mt. Diablo"...they re-routed the tour to include the Mt this year, and today is the day the get to do it!! 
Since I would have had to pick up the kids at noon due to the road closures, they are home all day today and we have our cowbells and chairs and snacks all ready to go set up alongside the road. 
For more info on Amgen, the Stage 3 map, and how you can watch the race live on line or on NBC Sports, go here.


  1. Woohooo! One way or another you are having lots of excitement this week, eh? Glad your house is still standing and your running buddy is back - don't know what I'd do without mine ... btw, it was nice to see Brian on his way to work while we were on our Monday a.m. run yesterday :-)

    1. Hey Pat,
      yes, quite the week!! B said he saw you two, he's enjoying being back to his favorite commute!
      Are we going to be seeing you this Saturday?

  2. I don't want to know what you've got planned for tomorrow to top the last two days! This really sounds like fun! (WAY more than yesterday.)
