the plan was to do multiple rides up to the towers on south mountain on sunday and follow that up with a nice long hike. around wednesday night a virus or other such scum had other ideas. i've felt like crap off and on since. i managed one ride up on the cross bike before i decided some time in the steam room and whirpool might be a better idea for the day.
up top i ran into some dc crew including dirty and felt compelled to introduce myself. unfortunately i had to decline the mimosas they had brought up. nice work.
on the way up i kept thinking, 'why didn't i bring the rip9 and some armor and just human shuttle holbert?" at least i could sample the top section.
i still feel like crap but at least i got a ride in.
