Even as dark clouds loomed in the sky up above I decided to pedal in to work today, and as usual, I'm completely thrilled with my decision. Part of my push to pedal is the fact that the Dakota 50 is looming ahead, just like the dark clouds this morning. It's a pretty big race for me, considering it's the only race I'm doing this year. I haven't really been riding off road enough to feel totally prepared and so any mile I can get in this month, I'll take. And, pulling Copper behind me is probably a good thing; adding 75 lbs to my load is a good training method.
