Hip Bursitis

First Ride up App Gap this Year

I got in an early ride up App Gap, complete with snow, sleet, slush, and lots of sand. I can still feel the grit between my teeth. Generally, it was a good ride and most of the suffering was due … Continue reading

First run in the NB MT00s

I probably should have gotten on the bike today instead of running, since the temps were well in the 50s, but I ended up running the local trails instead and took the MT00s out for their first run. I’m not … Continue reading
