The Heat... My God The Heat!
I know I should have been on the road tonight. Nearly 10 hours in the saddle on Saturday my legs needed a nice spin out. BUT it's sooooo freaking HOT!!! It was 94 (according to the Subaru's thermometer) and I just couldn't face the road with it's baking road kill and jacked-off sweaty drivers who needing every inch of road for their gas guzzling SUVs. Sooo instead of an easy spin on the road I did a ball buster on the Titus. Only about 1:15 but other than the 5 minutes to get the freaking gravy out of my legs, It was on! Felt great! Knee felt good, trails were freaking dry as a bone and pretty vacant. Saw one other rider, 1 runner and 2 people doing that freaky walk/run thing on single track. Whatever gets your caboose moving I suppose.
On a down note I got me some SERIOUS monkey butt. Gotta bust out the B-Man's "Monkey-Butt-Be-Gone" cream. Speaking of B-Man, I'm proud to report one of the words in his 18 mo. old repetoir is "bike". He even noticed the old Klein hanging in Jerry's apartment when I was watching Seinfeld tonight, and yells BIKE! And when we would watch the Tour he would yell "BIKE!" or "DAD!" and point at the TV.
Ok enough kid stuff, I know it's sappy.
Looks like I'm gonna skip the NORBA Marathon at Snowshoe most likely. Only 4 weeks till 7 Springs and I really want to do well there. I would love to go see the Pro XC race, 5 hour drive though. Hmmmmm.
Saw that Niterider has a new HID/LED light now too. Called the MOAB and the FLIGHT I think. I gotta e mail into them looking for more info. Anyone out there sponsored by Niterider? What's the deal?
Alright. Time for bed and maybe some crime fighting.
