Needs more cowbell!

    Ok, so only the women's C race and there were only 5 of us, but only 3 of us completed all 4 laps and I was 23+ seconds ahead of 2nd place. Wine will flow tonight! Man, I friggin' love this sport!

          One day I decided I wanted to become a runner, so I did.


          Needs more cowbell!

            Thanks!  Last week I was 4/7 (last week's winner got moved to Bs--where she belongs...she races in a skinsuit, FFS).  The week before that was my first race of the season and I was 5/8...lost my rear wheel (worked its way out of the rear drop-out...could have been sorta bad news if it had fully come loose, heh) and a place on the 3rd/4 lap of that race.

             

            I'd love to get to the place where I could actually race B master's (since I will be 40 next year).  Then I can actually race my DH, which would be sorta fun.  If I drop that stupid extra 20#s off my ass and put down at least another 1000 miles/year it could be doable.  A couple of years ago I said I'd never race cyclocross...and then I said I'd never mountain bike, but my new 29er will be here this week. Big grin

                Thanks!  Funny you say that...I think I was tougher last year, since I fell down a lot and always looked like I lost fights.  So far I'm staying upright a lot more this year.  My bruises this year are all from the mountain bike.  So hopefully by this time next year I can go for some stretches without being all black-and-blue.

                              Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

                                I wish I had a photo of myself looking THAT GOOD!
