Case beating

So our normal thursday night ride got canceled due to thunderstorms but it was no big deal because we made it up friday night. We were rolling 6 people deep and we started off for case mountain. Things were going good and all seemed well until I started falling behind fast on the climb after the bridge. I was climbing so hard and my legs were burning and my heart was pounding, something just didn't feel right. I try to keep up on tinti and and just getting smoked. I finally get off the bike and see what the problem is. Not one but both of my brakes are dragging bad. I pull the pads back and start pedaling again and it immediately felt better. I catch up to the group a mile later and the brakes are rubbing again. I continue to ride despite the problem fighting all the way. I had to leave the group because I just couldn't stay on the gas pedal enough to keep up with them. Was extremely frustrating but still so good to get out.
