I really wanted to ride mountain bike but I felt I should take a couple days off, at least. But on my way to pick up Brinna from swim practice I decided it was just too nice out not to ride. Plus it was my Birthday so I was entitled to a ride!
Over the weekend our trail hosted a high school mountain bike race. About a 1000 racers! I was excited to hit the trail up after that many riders blazed a path on our trails. It was so nice! We actually could use some rain. It's getting a bit dusty. Because it is so dry I was able to hit up a complete "Twisted Sister" a few times. The section of Twisted Sister we use in the race course is fairly easy to navigate but the last section on the South side is a bit gnarly with tons of roots, rocks, and turns. I finally made it through without dabbing....thank you Salsa Deadwood!
I don't think I ever just did a lap but did sections a couple times in a row to break up the monotony of doing laps upon laps. Thus I was able to rack up a bit over 2 hours. Even needed to turn on the lights!
Today is an off day. I was planning on going to Brinna's swim meet in Brainerd but Jen has a memorial to attend and I need to get the other kids from their activities, etc. Parenting.
