Huge weekend on two-wheels with some 16 hours in the saddle. That, plus the 5+ hours on trail running, hiking, sleeping really made it feel like Spring. This morning’s ride was brutal and time-trial-esque as I sprinted to catch our carbon nuetral bus. The additional 7.5 miles of flat might have put me under. I tipped in at under 170 pounds this morning, which is getting light. Shenna warns me that The Vapor is a long way out, and I need to chill. Hard to chill. Gotta chill – but it’s hard to chill. I don’t want to lose too many notches in the belt too early. So, ice cream and beer – here I come.
