14 miles on the 14 day before I participate in the CIM with a bunch of other like minded people!14 miles out on the DDMR and the small block twice.

start temp 58, end temp 62.  cloudy sky with 28% humidity, and 15 to 30 mph winds. Luckly the wind was only in my face about half the time. Average altitude for the run today, 5000'.

Life is good starting my second week of taper and I can hardly wait till my last week of taper!
