It snowed today and I wasn't feeling it. Took a while to get out. Skipped my hill blast session as it would have made the timing of getting two runs in difficult with dinner prep and the like. Got some sleep today which felt great. Back and neck are still a little jacked up, but better than when it happened.

I found out yesterday that Mad Anthony CX was cancelled due to some permit issues with the city of Detroit and some other organizations. To compound matters the mounds at Fort Wayne where the course is has earth that contain material from indigenous remains. A hearty kudos to the race organizers for taking the matter seriously. It was supposed to be in the upper 20s and windy, so I cannot say I am disappointed. And I haven't been on my bike for two weeks. Might try for one more race this season or call it good and try to hit the gravel scene hard in the spring and summer and get in a full cyclocross season next fall.
