If you don't you better get up off the couch more often. Last night I was so tired I had to take a 2 hour nap so I could make it to the bed to go to bed! Does that make sense to you. In other words I was tired. The weather was about as good as it gets the whole weekend. If you are an outdoors person it was the perfect deal. I did do some shopping with the wife Saturday but I still made it out to ride.
Did the road thing Saturday and hit the woods Sunday. The trails were absolutely perfect! Went to Sherman Branch, that is the local hot spot. If you ride a mountain bike Sherman is the place to be. Eleven miles of perfect single track. Went with the intentions of a nice easy ride and left with my tongue dragging. The leaves are still of the trees so you can see through the woods, so when I see someone that I know is out in front of me I can't help it, I have to catch them. So that is why my tongue was dragging! To top it off the local mountain bike club was having a social ride and they had about ten people riding together. They were all in the parking lot heading into the woods when I pulled up. So that gave them about a five minute head start on me. Of course I had to catch them, and I did! I had to work hard but I managed to get to them at about the eight mile mark. Then I had to kick it so they wouldn't catch me!!!
You look kinda stupid if you catch a group and pass all them and then slow down and get in their way. I made sure I didn't look stupid. Plus some of the guys in that group think they are the bomb. Never hurts to push them sometimes.
