I'll tell you what, I am enjoying this running thing and not enjoying the negative publicity on the pro scene of bicycle racing. I am going to continue to ride my bike with friends on group rides, but training for elite mtb racing is taking a back seat for the short term future. Will I be back? Sure, I think so, but I think enjoying the sport or comp races on my salsa singlespeed will be the go forward and that may be few and far in between. Bring on the 5/10K's.
