When I was out yesterday at the base of the second climb, I thought I saw two squirrels ahead of me on the shoulder of the road. As I spun closer to them (within three feet) I realized they were not squirrels rather woodchucks! They charged and snarled their teeth at me as I passed. They must have been protecting their nearby babies or something. A little scary, but cool at the same time.
Sarah also was fitted for her bike last night at Extreme. Some minor adjustments, new shoes, cleat adjustment and boom - no more numbness. Now she's just got to ride it more!
