Time off my bike to work on my run!

Today I took my bike to River Trails in Holmen http://www.rivertrailcycles.com/ this is to I'm not tempted to ride it! Plus my bike needs to get cleaned and ready for Ironman Kentucky. My neck is a little better today! Being in bed all day yesterday SUCKED! I still blame it on the roads at Chisago and just being really tense going over those bumps....
