    Back IN The Saddle Again...

    ... back where an old ass dh bike is my friend!!! it's been over 5 years since I've done any real biking. Plagued with acid reflux and dealing with extremely painful bunions has kept me in the dark.. Well! the meds are helping to keep the acid down and the Doc hacked off about 1/4'' worth of bone off the right foot and good 1/2'' worth off the left. Took just about a year for them to heal and now I'm ready get my 31yearold broken ass back in some sort of shape!!! The puppy dog has been sleeping a lot since starting back up with jogging. 1st time in over 2 years since I/we have ran. 2 weeks ago we started with light 1mile jogs 3 times a week. She gets to swim in the pond to cool down and burn off more fat and I'm about to start swimming at the pool on base! Need to get back in shape for Mammoth and hopefully North Star! The aging straight 8 and myself are itching for some real mountain time! till them the weekend hike & bike will suffice

    Awesome.
    Congratulations.
    You've got a lot to look forward to.
    2nd time through once you've moved beyond injury/health issues and rehab is WAY more fun in my experience(you appreciate it more.)
    Get to Mammoth-it's a whole different mountain these days.
    Opening day is next weekend.

    I agree with norman about the second time around being way more fun.

    I stopped riding when I turned 16 and got a car, and didn't really get back into until I was 24. I'm 30 now, and the past 6 years of riding have been amazing!

    Good luck with it!
