I am a bit surpised at the turn of events I have encountered in the last month. I successfully summitted Mt. Mitchell back in May, and then sort of lost all focus. Without a goal in front of me, I have gone to pot. Have not been getting in the miles (been on the bike, but not much), put on some weight, and just have not been concentrating on my riding at all. But tomorrow is a new day, and I will try to get back in the game. I will turn things around and set a goal to do Mt. Mitchell in 2011 about 20 pounds lighter and two hours faster. It's like the old adage, "If you aim for nothing, you'll hit it."
I did, however, finally get back to the bike cave and finish painting and put up the silver piece of trim between red and white (It's supposed to match the color scheme of my Roubaix). I like it, think it looks pretty good. Spent the whole day in the garage the other day, just working and hanging out with Fred Sanford and Andy Griffith.
Be blessed, be safe.
