Can't Wait For Snow

So over the weekend I was excruciatingly busy on Saturday, and came down with a nasty cold Sunday that kept me in bed nearly the entire day trying to get better. I've actually been sick now, to some degree, since the Friday before the cross race, and it's starting to annoy the heck out of me.

So being busy as heck on Saturday had me thinking. I was thinking that it was in the mid 60's and if I weren't coughing up a lung all day I'd have loved to be out hitting the trails. The leaves are AMAZING right now. The air is crisp, but beautiful. I was just so sad. Sunday was bed then breakfast, then bed, then dinner, then bed, then this, then bed. I was equally ticked off.

As a side effect I had a lot of time to think. I was thinking on how I really can't wait for winter. Drop the tire pressure down to, like, thirty PSI and hammer it in the snow. This year they are saying NE Ohio will likely have more snow than average. I am also looking forward to the idea of riding the aforementioned Ohio Eire Canal Trail during winter. The trail is open 24/7/365, so that should prove to be an all new experience.

Finally, I was reminded of the fact that I need to buy lights. After turning the clocks back this morning I came to the realization that while it's getting light at about 6:00 am it's starting to get dark at about 5:00 pm now. THAT sucks. No more riding into work for the time being.

Well, that's about it for now. Hope you had a great weekend, and a great week. Don't forget to get out and vote tomorrow!

I vote that you get out of bed and ride. Start taking garlic. I haven't had a real bad cold in about six years now. It was 1°c at race time yesterday and still in knee warmers.

Just kidding. Get well soon.
