5am on a Sunday morning most people are sleeping or wish they were sleeping. I slide out of bed leaving my wife and son who joins us so often in the middle of the night there sleeping so peacefully, that is the only thing that makes getting up hard but the trail is calling my name as it does so often. The drive to Berryman usually takes about a solid hour and having everything ready the night before makes getting started that much easier. I only needed the lights for about 1/2 hour but that was still fun, next time I would like to get a triple in with one lap in the dark I think that would be a blast. So anyway the single speed is still the #1 choice for the MTB and I have to admit I didn't think I would love it this much! The trail was amazing with the fool moon shining thru the trees and my lights reflecting the ice off of the leaves. The trail was a little slick in spots but stayed pretty solid until about the last half of the second lap when it started thawing out. Added in a few more miles to get a solid 50 for the day. The legs felt great the whole ride hope this is a sign of good things to come. First loop, Second loop. Made it home in time for a late lunch and a nice walk with the family. what a perfect day.
Saturday Lucas had his first swim class without me or Bettina being in the water with him, I have to admit I was kind of worried how he would do without us but he did awesome. Bettina put some pics on her site.
