    I've done MoM three times, but had to miss last spring because I was sick. This is about the best organized event I've ever done, and the only one with actual timings recorded (despite being "NOT a race" -- sure...)

    I made it to the top the first time, and the last time. I should have quit while I was ahead, but as of right now I'll probably do it one more time before I get too old and feeble...

    Aww I had something similar happen on my very first metric. A severe thunderstorm (tornado warnings, hail and the everything else) caused everyone to get scooped up in our segment. That is a very defeating feeling that I would not much care to repeat. After that I started working on increased my AMS to outrun the rain, with mixed results.

    I really do hope you get out there and get play in the mountains. I do not look forward to the day my body is done with physical challenges but I know it is inevitable. I raise my glass to you sir.

    It is looking like I will be out of the country for probably the two weeks leading up to MoM so I do not think this will be the year I get to go do that one. However I am hopeful that that is the only wedding I will be attending and I will be able to do Garret County and JBs Fondo in September, and in order to meet my goal for the year I think the Total200 will have to be in there. Garret county is the last week of June so BikeMS would be a good last distance training ride (first weekend in June) if anyone is interested

    It is nice to see that I am not the only one planning what to do now. I guess many of us have that itch.

    Happy new year all,
