"You Mean You Miss The Pain...?"
(Photo by Adam)
This morning was the first of the 2010 "Before work AF Canyon ride/races".
I spent almost an hour in the pain cave. Some days it sucks having fast friends.
Marky Mark and Grizzly do a nice job with their write ups.
I showed up prepared for a group ride until Tibble Fork where the attacks usually start. So I was slightly bummed when we rolled past the Fee Station (20 seconds into the ride) and Mark started going. I looked around in confusion. "Are we seriously going this hard this early?". I didn't know Mark and Elden had plans to post their TT effort today.
It took me a few minutes to get my head around the plan. There was no way out of it. Today's ride was going to be a nice long suffer fest. I found my place in the group, settled into a good pace, and went into to "Seth mode". There would be no talking for 54 minutes and 31 seconds.
I had missed that pain that only an AF ride can dish out. Good times with some good friends. I'll see you guys tomorrow. Same time, same place.
