Road ride time!
In case I have not said it enough let me say it again. My ankle might be messed up and I might not be able to run but I am SO fortunate to not only be able to ride a bike but also to have tons of bikes to do it with. And the experience to do it safely, enjoy it and get in a great workout.
Today I got out with my good friend John Phillips. Turns out we have a mutual acquaintance in Frank Hodge. Frank rides bicycles with John and used to run with another friend of mine Justin Angle. Now I wonder if John knows Justin. I doubt it. All this made me smile for some reason.
Riding with John was GREAT. He's a super cyclist (we used to race together) and as we were holding a pretty spirited tempo on the flats I was realizing that today is the first time this year that I have been out with anyone else on a bike! Oh the joys of drafting!
While heading up Tiger Mt. I saw Dave Hecht riding over the mountain going the other direction. I bet that guys is more familiar with this hill than anyone else I know.
