"It's never too late to start your life over."

You know how it is, you're just minding your business, doing whatever it is you are doing and all the sudden, something catches your attention, be it a car, or a woman, or an airplane at 30,000 feet and BANG, you aren't doing what you were doing before, you are distracted by said shiny thing. Yea, welcome to my life.

Death by Mountain Bike

Apparently I'm not a smart man.  I went riding today.  I did almost everything right.  I ate well before I left the  house.  I had a bottle of sports drink on the way to the trail.  I brought plenty of food and a full camelbak on the ride.  I took it easy on the trails: stopping when I needed a rest and taking it easy through the washes and rough parts.

Now we get to the almost part.  I almost remembered to put on sunscreen.  I had it with me, I just forgot to use it.  I almost stopped after the first 3.5 hours.  Almost.  You see, at this point I am down to a half liter of water and thinking that I really ought to call it a day and ride tomorrow.  Then someone offered me some water, so I took it and I went riding some more.  

I decided to go up to a trail called The National.  This is an absolute bear of a trail that I have heard is well on the expert side.  I only intended to check out where the trailhead was.  Then someone offered to show me exactly where it started and actually recommended a different loop that wasn't so difficult.  At some point I met up with another rider and he lead me through the tough parts and we rode for another 2.5 hours.

My legs cramped up when I got out of the car after the ride.  Well, they cramped quite a few times before that, but that was the last one, and the one that almost made me fall down.  Fun.

I wonder how tomorrows ride is going to be.

What eFax Is g> Payday loans can meet all these types of needs. No credit check is done by the lenders prior to the approval of no fax payday loan. Till few years ago the process of application and accessing a loan was a tiresome job but not now. This is a form of "cloud computing" where an online provider or server is used to handle all your messages. You can send a fax from virtually anywhere. It's not about the price, but it's all about which can best respond to your needs. Thermal fax machines use special papers known as thermal papers for printing.
