This is the weather forecast for tomorrow.
Tomorrow also happens to be the inaugural running of the FrontRunner Century, a nice little 62 mile jaunt from Salt Lake City to Ogden, with a return ride on the Frontrunner commuter train.
I’ve been looking forward to the ride for a couple of months now. I even convinced a friend to ride with me – this will be his first metric century.
Then Mother Nature decided that she wasn’t going away quietly.
There are two options available: not riding or riding.
I could choose to not ride, and get a couple hours more sleep in my nice warm bed before I pack the wife and kids into the minivan and head for Northern California (weather reports for there aren’t much better, bummer!). Normally that is the route that I would be inclined to take.
But not this time.
I am looking at tomorrow as a way to give Mother Nature the middle finger. To let her know that I am riding tomorrow regardless of what she throws our way. That I am going to have a fun ride just to spite her. I have all of my cold weather gear laid out for tomorrow, Layers, layers, and more layers.
Come on, BRING IT!
