I went up North for the weekend on 8/1. The old Firehouse 50 took place but I didn't race. I tried to get in to the time trial a week ago but the race was filled. John Wyland, Jeff Arndt and I drove to Grandview, rode 30 miles and then caught the finish of the race. Saturday night, I took a kayak out fishing and had one bass on. He jumped out of the water and spit the hook... Sunday morning, John Schmidt, Wyland, Arndt and I rode the single speed mountain bikes on the Mosquito Brook and Hatchery Trails. Those guys hammered. I was fine until I got into the rocky section. My back really bothered me so I had to take it easy. I got in 14 miles.
