Sorry about the delay in posting a follow-up. Had good reasons though. The doctor found that I had "elevated liver enzymes" in my bloodwork about a month and half ago. The problem with that is, the elevation could be a sign of liver cancer. Although the chances of it being liver cancer were fairly low, they wanted to get a better picture of what's going on. Well, after an ultrasound, and about a quarter of all the blood running through my veins being drawn, turns out it's just a "fatty liver". Basically saying I'm just overweight. Well doc, I could have told you that. Anyways, thankfully it wasn't cancer, because Lord knows I DO NOT want to go through all of that again.
So, on to bigger and better things. I still haven't made any concrete plans as far as some kind of "epic" ride or anything. I think for this year, I'm just going to work on getting in shape, and riding as many different places in the area as I can. There's a lot of trails here I haven't had a chance to ride yet, like Ft. Yargo, Bear Creek, etc. A lot of places that sound fun. So, I'll do that, and maybe next year do something crazy.
