    Sweet jumpin jeebus, it's supposed to not rain today. I haven't run the sprinklers in over two weeks. Passed this "retaining wall" on my run this morning.

    Busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest.
    counting down my hours until the weekend, even though I will be editing video unless I can knock out some ****e today.
    L's doing a shoot for Dodge & Burn so I will prolly run around Downtown with her.
    This weekend marks the 3 week mark of my no alcohol experiment. I hate how hard it has been. >.<

    I'm thinking the Dr. and I are gonna ride Keystone on Saturday, if either of you two hooligans is interested. Stoney you're invited as well if we can pry your candy ass away from teh Warrior Princess.



    EDIT: also, good morning Monkeylandville. I am about to eat a banana in honor of all missing Monkeys.

    EDIT numero dos: I also derpscovered today that my chain has been on backwards the entire time I've had this biek. Apparently it could have been shifting better for the last 1,300 miles or so.

    I'm staining the deck this weekend. Unfortunately. If I get done with time I'll try to squeeze out for a ride, but likely trails.

    Shimano ones, yeah. I've been informed that the NEW Shimano 10- and 11-speed chains are no longer directional, but everything since the beginning of Shimano 10-speed MTB stuff a few years back up until recently has been directional&#8212;logos go on the outside. Very odd that I've literally had this one on backwards for a little over a year and it's been fine. That said, it could also be why the entire drivetrain wore out so "quickly".

    It builds character. Besides, it makes the downhill all the better.

    In a little over two weeks I am riding the Shenandoah Mountain 100. Over 14,000 ft of climbing. The good news, over 14,000 ft of sweet singletrack descents.

    Nice! I did it back in 2003. Ten years older and ten pound heavier now. Pretty much been off the bike from August 2010 until this april. Feeling pretty good now but I have been getting stronger each week so I have no idea what I am capable of. Pacing myself is going to be tough.

    ^^^This, times a million.

    I'm guessing 14K of climbing is gonna decide pace for you.
