Rain, rain go away.


But it’s hard to complain with temps like this. Rain gear is on standby. Miles will be put in.

I spent another Sunday at Lake Sylvia, recon’ing the Slobberknocker route. My legs felt pretty good for the 50 or so miles and would like to get up to around 100 on the route before the race. Here’s to a rad weekend, slainte!
