Hey everybody! it's nate!
Dave, Isaac, and I just finished up our first race of the Month of Mud season. I'll admit that I was dreading the task, having been a bit of a slacker, missing many opportunities to ride this year. Dave says the better shape you're in, the more fun cycling is. Fortunately, unicycling is a fun way to get into shape. I don't know anyone that regrets going out for a ride once they get out there.
The thing about Month of Mud is that it is a great atmosphere for anyone who wants to challenge themselves. Mountain bikers are always welcoming to new riders, and are especially impressed by anyone on a uni.
Brady's run itself is a tough course with plenty of extended climbs, which is why Isaac and I have avoided it in the past. We enjoyed most of the race riding neck and neck, passing each other only when one of us would get hung up on on a root. Its been good to see how much Isaac has improved over the last year. He certainly gave me a run for my money. I think if he'd had the same size wheel as me, it would have been a whole different race.
I'm looking forward to seeing how the rest of the season unfolds. Oct 2nd is the Cyclocross race at North Park. It should be the perfect course for beginners and for spectators. Hope to see y'all there!
