I can't say that I'm surprised, though it did take me a while to put it all together.

I think it started when I said that I was thinking about getting a coach. Emails that took a few days to come back. That sort of thing.

And then when I signed up for a coach, it got a little more obvious. A Saturday ride got cancelled. And he got "busy".

Yesterday, it all became so clear.

Elden is moving back to Utah because he's afraid he won't be able to keep up with me this summer.

Seriously, I'm going to miss you. I don't think any of my riding friends are quite as crazy.
