Like I said, I've been doing some riding, mostly mountain biking. I was doing some racing prior to the diagnosis and was doing quite well. A 2nd place and two 1st place finishes in my age and category - Cat3 40+. Not too competitive of a field, but hey, I'm over 40 and racing mountain bikes. I will share a few pictures from that until I can post my other trip reports. The picture on the left is the finishing climb on our home trail in Ridgeland, MS at the 2010 McGee Lungbuster. Got a 2nd place podium finish at the race. Shortly after this race is when I made my first trip to Eagle Rock Loop in Arkansas but we had to leave early. That's why we are going back this November.
The McGee Lungbuster was a great race for me. The weather was perfect, the trails were in perfect shape and fast, and it was a fun time had by all. In 14 years of cylcing, it was my first mountain bike race. The depressing part of UC diagnosis is that I was just on the verge of really getting strong on my bike. But oh well, must not be God's plan for me right now which I'm certainly ok with.
1st Place Tuffburg - Hattiesburg, MS
