after flying from vegas to seattle, seattle to new york (red eye), and finally new york to portland, maine. i'm finally here in the shire, the sticks - freedom, new hampshire. no cell service, but deathly slow dial up internet. i feel awful. interbike and the travel has crushed me. i'm on the verge of becoming really sick. it's a pretty time in new england right now, the leaves are turning and the foliage is beautiful. it makes me very excited to run this weekend in vermont. if i wasn't feeling so beat up i'd be itching to get out into those white mountains and run.
hernias: yep. talked to my dr. yesterday. ct scan showed i have bilateral inguinal hernias (hernias on both sides). i am still running the vermont 50 miler this weekend. pain is temporary. surgery is scheduled for friday oct 12th, a couple days after i get back home to seattle. doesn't matter if i have to work on paying this off for the next 5 years - it has to be fixed.
interbike: i was too busy to take photos or blog while there. the outdoor demo was awesome, dusty and hot.. perfect for nuun. i hope to at least add some photos soon.
