I’m not going to bore you with the details of my latest crud-related illness, nor will I get political on this mofo as I had intended (we all know where I stand, and I’m not going to try and change anyone’s mind). Instead, I’m going to give a shout out to Jeff Viscount for another job well done at this past Saturday’s Assault on Morrow Mountain. Sure, there was a race that day as well, but I figured getting dropped for free is easier to swallow than paying 25 bucks to have my ass handed to me. I think I’ve pretty much accepted my status as a career category 4 roadie. Maybe I’ll eschew road racing altogether next year and just go for endurance mountain biking. I seem to have done better at that anyway. Not only that, but I miss things like this:
Seriously, the last time my tires have touched dirt, I was going anaerobic with mud coursing through my nasal passages. Hey, maybe there’s a connection there.
The cold medicine’s making me kinda loopy and unproductive so that’s all I’m gonna give you for now. Not that I’ve been very prolific lately.
