- A friend of mine has mentioned a certain routing to the Issaquah Brewhouse as a way to break the 100 km mark for a while, so I decided to try it today. I already knew much of the route anyway, so it'd be a great way to raise my distance record.
- I spent some time last night looking over the weather blogs and forecasts, and they claimed that it would be dry today.
- I started off with my rain gear anyway.
- And thank goodness I did!
- Once I got to Lake Washington Boulevard, it was primarily uncharted territory for me.
- I ate a pickled herring sandwich shortly after climbing a bit.
- After each stop, I noticed that my tail light went out. Thankfully, I did bring spare batteries, but even the spares were depleted despite being charged fairly recently. Rechargeable batteries are certainly not perfect.
I stopped by the Target in Newport to buy some emergency alkaline batteries.
- That wasn't too far from my destination.
- Since nothing was open, I just started north from that point to start heading home. The goal on this leg was to get to Marymoor Park and the Burke-Gilman Trail.
