Falling down is hard
Just wish one of these times when I get injured that I had a good story to go with it.
After putting in about 3.5 hours of epic southwest suburban Chicago road miles on Saturday morning, I decided to bypass the worsening traffic with some flatland TT miles along Centennial and I&MC Trails. It's about 13 miles from the Willow Springs Road trail head to 135th near Romeoville. The first 5 miles west of Willow Spring road are crap (now that they tore up the newer north of the canal trail for construction work) but if you can stand that kidney buster section without jettisoning any water bottles, then the last 8 are smooth sailing....no stop signs and very little traffic in terms of other riders.
Rode last 30 miles of bike with blood dripping down leg because badass. (I won't say how because dumb ass). #triathleteproblems #fbAll Hail Jesse - Winner of Eagleman 81.3!
