The school year is winding to a close. And what does this mean for me? Kids all the time. Which is GREAT! They be my mostest fave peeps to be doin’ the chillin’ with. But it also means I don’t get my mid-morning reprieve. This is a good thing because it’s now forcing me out of bed at 5 am (when those cursed birds are waking me up now anyway), to get out and ride/run/workout before the family wakes and realizes I’m not there.

To this end, Sara and I hit the trail this morning. I have to confess that she is one of my most favoritest riding friends. She’s patient when I suck, shows me the cool lines (read: teaches me awesomeness). She has good stories and doesn’t mind listening to my thoughts either.

We climbed up Pet, hit Tab up to Eagle Tail, and rode that in full. It was a beautiful morning!
