This is why the early season chaps me. No not because it wrecks the trails, because it doesn't really. But this years winter training has been a bit of a wash out, literally. Barring the fact that I am now back at it and it is only March 9th. I find the early races a bit of a pain in the ass. I am never ready, the pain is bad and I end up looking like this. Even though the picture below is well into summer.
