Mountain Biking... and those pesky allergies

Over the last month or so, I have been spending a lot of time on my mountain bike. Maybe not quite as much time as some people do, and not quite as much time as I would like to, but a lot compared to what I had been spending on the bike.

There is a really fun and fast trail right around the corner from work, so I have been heading over there to ride on Tuesday evenings. It has been so much fun!! The only way to get better and faster is to get out on the trails. Yesterday I met a good friend at Rosaryville and the weather was phenomenal. He could only stay to do 1 lap of the 9 mile trail, so I went back into the woods and rode the trail in the opposite direction that we had just come. I only saw 1 other biker the whole hour and a half I was out there.

Now, the one downside to this whole thing is that I am paying for it today. My allergies are out of control! I guess I could get medicine to take care of it, but I like to limit the amount of medication that I am putting into my body and let my body fight things off naturally. I am not sure how much longer that will last though...
