Dragon's Back

Another day, another twenty mile mountain bike. This time Beth, Drew and I biked and hiked our bikes onto a beautiful ridgeline south of Roanoke. The riding was very technical with tight, rocky, leaf-covered trail. Today we wrapped up the mountain biking vacation with another ride at Pandapas Pond. My body is pretty beat up from the week but my spirit is high.

Poverty Creek mountain bike ride

Drew and I rode a 20-mile mountain bike route today on the trails around Poverty Creek and Brush Mountain northwest of Blacksburg, Virginia. Our route hit most of the trails in the area and was sufficient to wipe me out. I haven't done a long mountain bike in quite a while. The dogs Sam and Rae were along as well and did great. Fortunately there was water they could drink from and soak in pretty often along the trail. Somehow I am going to survive the rest of the week and more riding.

Run to eat

Yesterday I ran in the 8K Shamrock Run in downtown Portland for the second year. Jennie and Nate registered me for my birthday this year. The weather turned warm and humid and we all enjoyed getting out and sweating with a few thousand other people in the morning.
The real reward was eating (and drinking) at Genie's afterwards.
