Feeling better.. finally. And a club rider

So I'm actually starting to feel like I might not always walk with a waddle or wince every time I move. I didn't go to the Dr.'s as Martin suggested as I felt significantly better after the bad Christmas night. ALSO my biopsy came back and it's benign!!! I've had many many cysts and tumors removed and I've never been worried about any of them. But this one had me worried down to my core. What a relief that is.




On more friendly news I was asked to join a cycling race team/club. It's not a professional type of team (I'm not that good..yet). So you have to pay dues and buy your own team outfit so that kind of sucks especially when you're broke like me. But hopefully I can get some good training out of it and move my race results into podium position. I've been racing with these guys all year and they are pretty cool as far as competitive cyclists go. And the fact that they don't care if I blow off the road season and only focus on CX is a huge plus. So we'll see how it goes. At the very least I got a cool new outfit.

Only took 12 posts to get to something positive.

Things are looking up around here.

This hasn't been a positive month.

Martin said...

Well, there's always next year.

As I said, things are looking up.

Joey, when can you do a long road ride?

Joey said...

About a week maybe a little more, why?

walverio900 said...

'Cause I've been getting some road miles in. I'll be able to join you some time.

Martin said...

Count me in on those miles.

Speaking of which, are you guys riding New Years Day? MTB or Road.

Joey said...

I won't be able to get n the bike by New Years day. Probably the 2nd week of Jan. Still unbelievably sore and swollen. Once I do I'm goig to be looking to do some 4-6 hour rides.

Martin said...

Looks like there's a ride at French Creek New Year's Day at 7am.

Once you get rolling again, we'll have to pile on the miles. My legs are just starting to open up again after several months of not enough cycling and too much running.

I am riding with some team mates at FC on New Years day, so I won't make the 7 a.m. ride.
Joey, you're scaring me with that 4-6 hour ride comment, but I'll try everything at least once.
