The SAS ride

If you live in the Triangle and ride a bike you may have heard of the Wednesday lunchtime SAS group ride. SAS (pronounced Sass) is a local tech company that is privately owned and has done very well over the past 30 years - they produce business analytic software & services - everyone who works there is smart or good at faking it. You have to marry or kill someone to get a job there these days. And SAS treats their employees well, so taking a long lunch to go for a 30 mile bike ride is not a problem.


Anyway, the SAS ride is one of the fastest rides in town on any given day. There are a few other tech companies in the area, so other rides join in on the fun for a 5 mile warm up - 20 mile sprint - 5 mile cooldown. Today was my first SAS ride of the year. I managed to hang on which is a noteworthy event. Also I wanted you to see my totally awesome logo creating skills.

In other news, I signed up for an EMT-B summer course at Wake Tech Community College. This is a step towards getting Bri out of the cube and ourselves to the beach in the summers. Most beach patrols pay a supplement for having an EMT certification. Now I just need to win the lottery, create a bestselling DVD, invent something, or get a teaching job.
