I've unburied my bike room from underneath the piles of smelly sleeping pads/bags, tent, clothes... smelly fog. Time to get back to work (my other work).

My two issues to sort out...
The prescription riding glasses. Dunno what to do about that. To get my brain/eyes to adapt to the aberrations, I need to wear them more. They are a PITA at work though, and my eye doc told me I don't really need to be wearing corrective lenses on the job anyways. Gotta figure that out somehow.
I was originally bummed about not being able to do the Pisgah Enduro™ and having nothing on the schedule until the Wilderness 101, but now I think I'm grateful. I've got plenty of time to "rebuild," and I can honestly feel a lack of fatigue and a certain desire to ride a bike. This would be whatever the opposite of "burn out" is, I guess. No idea what it's called. Not used to feeling it in June.
So anyways, I decided that I would use that certificate I won (before I wuz ded) at the Trans-Sylvania Epic for some free ESI grips (grips I would buy anyways) to serve as a reminder that I ain't ded (yet).
all I need to do is recognize change when it happens.
