I have not consumed meat in more than four years. I do not eat fish, chicken or clams. I cut out red meat years prior. In the past few weeks, I've had odd cravings, such as little necks and clam cakes. When I ride past a cookout, the burgers smell great....what is happening? From what I've read, it's possible that my body is craving these foods, because I have a severe lack of protein in my diet. Or, is it my inner fat bastard trying to get out? Probably both. I wont be eating a burger any day soon. Clams cakes may be a possibility, there is never any clams in those things anyway.
Saturday Scott and I went for a woods ride in Big Riva, the first two hours were great fun, riding the berms and whoops like we were on a pump track. After two hours of moderate paced fun, we were out of water, and ready to head back. We got lost, we passed the same log bridge a few times in 45 minutes. Scott kept cool and was amiable as ever, but I was getting frustrated. As road types do, we settled on a double track dirt road, figuring that it lead somewhere. After a few hundred yards I saw a figure, I thought it was an apparition. No, it wasn't an oasis or a camel, it was true salvation. It was Brendan D.! Yes! He graciously offered me some much needed water and lead us out of the woods. Thanks Brendan! The beers are on me.
Today Bart and I went for a road ride in the rain. We rolled out into the hills at a comfortable pace, chatting and catching up. Bart is a great riding partner, I miss the long Sunday winter rides out of the shop. Cheers Bart!
Happy Father's day!
