I took the weekend off from officiating and traveled to Traverse City, MI to compete in the Iceman Cometh mountain bike race. I finished the race in 2 hours and 45 minutes. I had maximum heart rate of 165 on one long steep climb & an average heart rate of 138. The Sun was out at the start and then between miles 4 & 8 I got rained on pretty hard, then it dried out until the sleet and wintry mix started falling during the last couple miles. Debbie took this picture of me at the parking area a couple of miles away from the finish line. The ride from the finish to the car was the coldest part of the day. It was straight into the wind with no trees to block it and I had cooled off a little. Fun day!
