ride mb to bus stop - looked down at watch, was late so had to hitail it, bus was starting to pull out just as i came in. then access road to chubb, castlewood south, ford river same place as last week - same water level, easier because i knew exactly what to expect, then met up w/ matt and bill. did some mb o for warmup, then headed for cedar bluff trail, but i had threaded pedal in wrong, and it stripped the threads so.....
i had a great run on cedar bluff trail, while the others mb'd the loop in the other direction. With backpack from river narrows, then w/o pack on CB loop, then w/ pack back to river narrows. Apparently running beats mountain biking??? unless they had a flat or something.
Best i've felt running since my run training tapered off.
Rode back to parking lot one pedaled, probably best not to mention flip off 5' cliff or people wont want me on their AR teams. Matt gave me a ride to bike shop. thanks Matt.
