A Lil Saturday Fun Climb on GMR 2/2/13

Well, after a long absence on GMR, Alyce talked us into riding GMR to the shack. Gina wan't happy but figured she'd give it a chance. Being sick for a long period of time, pretty sure Gina was feeling it today. But she's a trooper. I figured and I think Herb figured she'd say "uncle" at about mile 2. But she fought her way up and that's what counts. If you can't make it on your worst day........

Alyce on the other hand just seemed to float up the mountain today. We think she's been training secretly ha ha! And what is a good GMR ride without encountering the ever cool Mat. Guy always has something nice to say. Along with the famous GMR Blogger and Bill the super photographer dude! Always nice to see run into them. We talked for a bit then figured we might catch Gina. Alyce I'm sure was gone but maybe Gina. Nope, didn't happen. She must have rode herself into form somewhere along the way cause she was gone.

I've been sick myself but figured I better do a little climbing since I got suckered into doing the Palm Springs century next weekend. Darn flu but I figure if I don't puke more than twice on the century, I'm doing OK!

All in all a nice day and a nice ride! Oh yeah, what's a good GMR ride without Chicken and Ribs after?

I just like this song. One of those songs you hear and it just sticks on ya!

More pics in blog if interested

My son came down with a mild case of the flu Thursday... I stayed home with him Friday. Of course, I'm petrified that I'll get it this week and be in absolute awful shape Saturday for the TDPS, not that it would stop me.

Nice ride! I'm jealous! I only had time for a 30 min ride today between 2 soccer games, 2 basketball games, drama and some parent volunteer time. More soccer tomorrow and then I hear there's some fb game I don't care about.

It was a nice day for GMR. Not hot but not cold. I'm shocked at how many riders there are on GMR nowadays!
