A nice come from behind win tonight. During warmups, the player hit well, but at the start of the set, he hit slice and drop shots and I fell behind 3-0.

I was able to battle back, moving him a lot, left and right, and pushing deep balls.

Second set, I fell behind 2-0 but pulled it together to win the next 6 games.

On top Caraway Mountain. This was the first time I had ridden over Caraway Mountain, so the group decided I should also do the climb to the summit, up two pitches, one 18% and one 20%. Then at the top, Dave (in back explaining the next climb) says we need to climb to the fire tower too.

Some days I am too optimist about life. I had a 7:30 tennis match and despite a severe thunderstorm warning, I still decided to ride. About 15 minutes in, lightning started and the wind was crazy… I bush whacked my way backĀ  to the trail head and reached the truck as it let loose! Maybe I need to be more negative!
