Thuns out guns out (in Mike Tyson voice)
I swear. It's not offensive to Mike Tyson, he designed a shirt himself with that same slogan on it. But also yeth. You really couldn't have asked for a better mid-October weekend; there were blue skies, behks, frands, and some killer dinner (more on that later). Read to the end to see a funny Mike Tyson video and its context.
There was the Iron Cross race on Sunday, and even though I wasn't doing it, my friend Nate was, so he came up to my apartment for the weekend to ride before his race. Then there was also a 50km running race on Sunday in Rothrock which somehow seemed like a good idea for Will to do after only 2 weeks of running training. Actually, it did end up being a good idea for him, but more on that later also.

Losing the few brain cells I have
It was my family's annual trip to Ellicottville, NY, where the trails are extremely rooty and rocky. Sounds like the perfect opportunity to ditch my flaccid fjork (trademarked) and take the rigid. After all, bouncing around on some roots and almost certainly causing head trauma won't hurt me any more than Dahn Pahrs did at the Onion last fall (which he kindly reminded me of on a Facebook birthday post). In case you missed it, I can't really tell you what happened. That's kinda the point of the story.
