Trip to Sloan Kettering 9/16/08

Heading into Sloan Kettering, NYC tomorrow for an MRI, these help keep track of any possible change in detail since the last one. I am actually a bit nervous but cannot say much to family as they worry more and ask way too many questions.

That being written, no more worries, MRI will go well and I’ll give results tomorrow when back home.
Lets face it this last surgery did something right, best season I’ve ever had and that was just from some extra brain/tumor removal.

Well, it really was the Superfly 29er but figured I’d try to take some credit.

Funniest part of this whole thing to me is the song “If I Only Had a Brain” that pops into my thought occasionally when having a bad day. I must have been smarter as A kid. :)

Hodges Village Dam 8/10/08

Haven't done this one in a few years, it's a fast course and you just hammer from start to finish.
Good crew showed up, Thom Parsons, Mark McCormack, Rickey Visinski, etc. and we flew out when they said go. Lap 1 group stayed together, headed into lap 2 someone attacked in an open spot before we hit the woods and that broke us up a bit. I'd been grabbing for a bottle at that point and got dropped a bit, chased for a while but just lost heart and let 'em go.
Last lap Mike Joos passed me and was dead serious about the race, that got me moving again.
Wound up fifth and was very glad I had done the race, time is an issue right now with training and sleep so I needed it.
