Tree down at 5.1 miles right at the start of the one of the re-routes in the Hills of *beep*. About 10" in diameter so it'll definitely need a chainsaw. It's dead so I easily broke off a few branches making it easy to walk over. It's location ruins ones momentum going up the re-route hill though.
Maybe it wasn't such a good idea to ride in the middle of the afternoon today in 97 F heat....
I totally bonked at about 9 miles and took the short cut back. Even then I struggled more than usual on all the hills. Watch yourself out there. Having a lot of water just isn't enough in this heat. It was nice to take a dip in the lake after getting back to the parking lot though.
BTW, the tree I mentioned in my previous post is at ~9.5 miles, not 7.6 miles. Sorry.
