The Cold

It's been a while since the last post and I plan on uploading some new images from Thanksgiving and other events over the past two weeks. The new project at work has taken a large portion of my time and the training has become a nightly ritual. My hamstring was injured during a training ride 3 weeks ago and I plan on testing its strength in Round 4 of the Bay Area Super Prestige Series at Golden Gate Park on Sunday. I rode alone on Thanksgiving morning and enjoyed a beautiful sunrise from the Golden Gate Bridge. The bike path was covered with a light frost and my glove selection was not suitable for the riding conditions. I ended up tucking my hands into the back of my jersey to keep warm and the wind chill managed to creep through the zippers and cracks in my vest. There were a few birds fishing in the marsh and I thought about the warmth of the water as it moved out of the marsh into the channel. Eventually, I stopped at a cafe for a double shot of espresso and warmed my hands and feet before finishing the remaining miles of my ride. Anyway, I need to get some sleep before the big event tomorrow, but I look forward to a strong race and some images for the blog. I hope everyone is doing well and thanks for reading.
