A test of strength......


Saturday I decided to test the legs out. What's a good way to test the ole legs out? Climbing Nick-a-jack Road! I'd probably rate this climb at #2 in town following respectfully behind Roberts Mill Road and preceeding Burkhalter and Raccoon.


The good news is that I survived even though I had no choice but to stand on the pedals and grind it out in 3 or 4 switch backs due to steepness. The bad news is that it was an eye opener as to how much I need to work on my climbing skills! The scenery was spectacular as I saw wildflowers everywhere in full bloom. To me......that made the climb worth it all.


The rest of the day was spent working in the yard and doing house chores......
