Dustin Killed the sprint on Ranier. I tried to reel in the Dewars guys (they started WAY early) and was able to nail them about 200 from the cross walk and Dustin flew past us like we were standing still. It was AMAZING. We cruised to Coulon and the 95% of the group did May Valley, Dustin and I skipped it, we were way to tired from yesterday.

Side Note. I woke up about 3 this morning with a tennis ball sized cramp in my hamstring. It almost brought tears to my eyes. I had to walk around the house a bit and stretch before falling back asleep. Wow yesterday really took it out of me.

As we finished our first loop around Mercer Dustin had to peel off to head home and I just kept on cruising. I spun lightly, nothing too fast, maybe averaging 15 mph. The sun was out, the bike was feeling good and I was smiling. It’s days like today where it’s just fun to ride.
