New BB and Superfly arrived today! 16 days order to delivery!
Feels like Christmas! Can't set it up yet due to a scout meeting with my son tonight. Oh well, that's why I ordered it in the first place. I will set it up tomorrow evening and get to try it out on a small scout trip this weekend. The next weekend will be the real test, 30+/- mi on the AT from Neel's Gap to Springer. Maybe to Amicalola if we do well. I am actually hoping for some rain to try out my BB.
Ran 5 mi of trail at Sawnee Mtn on Saturday. I am a track runner, not a trail runner, and coordination is not one of my attributes. At about 1/2 way I tripped over a rock avoiding hikers and ended up doing a head over heels tumble that amazingly put me back on my feet. Even though I sustained quite a bit of skin damage, nothing was broken and I didn't break my neck!
Best of all, what could have been embarrassing turned out to be an impressive recovery. After washing off all of the blood, I continued running for the remaining 2 1/2 miles. Little bit sore on Sunday/Monday, but I survived.
Not to smart? yes. But isn't that part of the description of being a kid?
At 51, I am proud.
