Part 2 of my MMT pacer miles falls on Sunday, and thus next week stats.

What a wonderful Virginia weekend. Arrived late Thursday night only to be greeted by an all-day rain on Friday. I hung out in the quaint town of Front Royal and plotted out my weekend. I enjoyed hiking a couple AT peaks along Skyline drive before heading over to the MMT race to crew and pace for Dave.

Not a bad week. I've come to believe that the cycling miles play an important factor in my training. I'm disappointed there's no swimming to report, but hey, I cannot have it all. Right?

Now less than 4 weeks to the MO.
