Green Mountain and Ride to Jamestown

Green Mountain
7 miles/2,500 vertical feet (including warmup)
35:39 up/24 down

Had an excellent run up Green today, went about as hard as I could and was 20 seconds shy of PR. The day was great and I felt pretty good. I cut the webbing between my thumb and index finger at the start as I was trying to hide my windbreaker and it started bleeding a lot. I don't do well with blood, especially my own. I rinsed off in the cold creek for a bit which felt good, then wrapped it up really good with toilet paper from the outhouse. Not the best way to start a run and I was a bit pre-occupied with it for the first 10-15 minutes. Bumped into GZ and JZ on the way down. Talked to them for about 2 minutes.

In the afternoon, Allison and I rode to Jamestown with Joe and Julia. It was a great time and was fun to get out on the bike. We went pretty easy, although Joe and I cranked it up the hills a few times. My legs felt surprisingly good.
