In hindsight I was a little under prepared for the cold, rainy & windy conditions but sometimes there-in lies the challenge and adventure.  17 mile trail run to/from the summit of Black Mountain via my new "super-loop" (a.k.a. no back tracking).  2.5 hours, 3000' of ascent/descent, 8:35 pace, average heart rate 130 bpm, 168 +Strava Suffer Score, 5 oz of water and 1 gel.  My fueling was actually fine but a wind-proof jacket, warmer hat & gloves would have made traversing the open ridge-line more comfortable against the stiff wind, pouring rain & 40 degree temps. #trailrunning  http://www.strava.com/activities/225622245

30 miles of mountain biking, 2400' of climb.  Most of this terrain should be under several feet of snow.  When life gives you lemons (no snow), make lemonade (go mountain biking).......and 1985 called, they want their Clement Gelati GIS insulated jersey back.......and the 1995 Specialized S-Works Steel.   #cycling   #throwbackthrusday   #GoPro   https://www.strava.com/activities/254103450
