I just wanted to go mellow and that is exactly what we did. I also wanted to not aggravate my damn blister but that unfortunately didn't work out so well. :( It ended up puffing a bit more and now I'm not so sure what to do prior to Saturday. Hope for the best I guess.
It was an amazing morning. Dry, warm, and the sun was poking through the trees by 6:00 AM. Freaking beautiful. We chatted and jogged and I felt fine. The start was mellow and we only accelerated as much as you naturally do when you warm up.
I took my Brooks Cascadia 8s out for a spin this morning and I'm thinking this might be the shoe for the weekend.
Riding to and from work felt super! That part did get me pretty pumped up about Saturday.
