Took my new ride out for a test "drive" through Cuyahoga Valley tonight. The rain held off and the sun stayed up long enough for me to get in 16 miles in an hour.
Not as fast as I would like to be going but I have like 3 weeks to get faster before Memphis ;) I need to get my body back in riding shape. My hands hurt a bit and my neck and back were definately not up to par. I am still not completely used to the new handlbars yet. And riding in the drops downhill still scares me to death. But I think I can handle the new shoes and clipless pedals.
I need to swim in the morning so I have to cut this short. This weekend is packed but hopefully I will finally find some time to write about the actual MARATHON this weekend!
