A visit with the doctor.
I was told by daughter Melissa, and older sister Dawn, I just can't disappear from Blogdom just because I haven't been bicycling. I told sister Dawn, but my endorphin supply is down, I'm just want to spend my free time whining to everyone who will listen. It got so bad around here that Creepy Baby and Friend started hitting the bottle. So now I drink with them. I know it's wrong, but it's only for a season
Perhaps that explains something. It seems earlier this year I was putting more hours in the saddle then most bike riders that I know. Seems I was slowly getting slower. I wasn't gaining on it. At Triple D race this January I didn't have my 'normal motor' running that I am used too. I said to myself I'm 58, my MOJO supply just isn't what it used to be. Maybe something else was working on me.
Other riders saw it, I stayed in the back half, a couple of guys dropped along side of me, and asked if I wanted to start 'working it' I told em go ahead, I'll find you.
So my plans are just to hang out, rest up, get this problem figured out and ride again like I have never have before. The bikes will be ready, it'll come.
Meanwhile I am mounting a pedal system to my '6 wheeler' for some easy does it riding. :-)
