2019 SMR 32

First:  The Diablo Challenge needs more volunteers - will require getting up early on a Sunday.  Sign up HERE.

Wildlife Encounter:  deer at Little Pine Creek

Tarantula Tally:  one near the bottom of The Bump

I had my annual doctor exam on Thursday.  Told her I was ridiculously healthy, she looked at some numbers on her computer and agreed with my diagnosis.  Heart, lungs, BP, BMI A1c, TSH, PSA; everything was close to perfect.  Then I got a flu shot (just like every year because FLU!), and I think it made me really tired on Friday.

Today's plan was to attack the Junction to Juniper segment.  I needed to do it in 18m30s for a Personal Record - 17m45s to beat Kevin's time; I figured I had a shot, and I wasn't doing Summit so I could "leave it all on the road".  So at Junction I took my normal break and ate my normal Clif Bar and chatted with the other cyclists that were there and then I went for it.  I was feeling super great and I was passing a bunch of other riders and watching my time and it looked like it was working.  Ran into some gusty wind before Blue Oak but I didn't let it slow me down too much.  Then I became aware of how SMOOOOTH I was riding... I'm talking a Smooth Joey level of smoothness ... on top of a pretty big gear, high cadence, upper body still, and drinking up the road.  Suddenly, there was Juniper and I was in under 16 minutes.  Boo.  Yah.

Product Review: Creme of Nature Natural Hair Products suck! They're over-priced, destroy the rain forest, kill pandas, and they stink. Bottled by child slaves chained to industrial equipment, and the company will steal your credit card number and put ransom wear on your computer.
