Oh Dear God. I have not been sick like this for...well nothing comes to mind. I felt it coming on Sunday and Monday but just chalked it up to a ton of training and winter blues. Then after a unsuccessful ride with scooter on Tuesday morning I came home and looked for a place to curl up and die. I could not open my eyes and was randomly moaning. Amber came home from work early and babied me around. I hit the night time thera-flu and was able to sleep but kept waking up totally drenched in sweat. Today is better, things hurt and I came home from work after a morning meeting. I have put racing this weekend out of my mind. I am disappointed but honestly hurt to bad to care much.
After posting a picture of the Maa Daa Hey trail on my last post I received a very nice email from Wade Westin who is the marketing director for Medora, ND (the home base for the epic trail) He told me that the trail is extending another 50 miles to make it around 150 miles of continuous singletrack. If you have the chance go ride this trail, it is stunning. Wade also asked me to post the dates of a couple of events that they hold in the area. The Bully Run is on May 31st and the Badlands Trail Run is on September 6th. Maybe just enough incentive to get you there.
My second Rainbow picture. Apparently the double is pretty rare, and the arched bridge is making a triple, rarer yet.
