I went back to the hill for another day in the sunshine. I wound through the thick fog until, like yesterday, I emerged into cloudless brilliant sunshine. Today I wore sunblock and its smell, coupled with sunshine and damp air put me in mind of a summer day at the beach. After an hour or so, I was loosened up, and the sense of being on a summer vacation intensified. I rode familiar runs most of the day, but finally, carried away by the day’s energy and my mood, I braved a couple of groomed black diamonds, and made them!
