Sometimes when you butt heads with someone for a long time that you've only met online or just in passing at a race (especially when both of you are very strong-willed and opinionated people), but then you have the chance to hang out and drink beers, you get to know each other better and find out how OK the other is! Kurt, fun weekend with you and Shelley. Must have been fate at the Longhorn Steakhouse. Either that or us following the Subaru with the shoes on top. ;-)
Back from the shop with new bar tape and new pedals (Look KEOs). Took it for a test ride on the rollers tonight. A good workout!
What was I? A "cross" dressing vision in pink, with the new pink argyle and sparkly jersey, a hot pink skirt from www.tribabe.com, glasses and a mustache. Eight year old Allie was already doing the kids' race when I got back from the car and I yelled at her to GO GO GO and she kept staring at me and laughing and almost ran into the kid in front of her. It was pretty funny. A very good time was had by all.
Another race today and 3rd place! Race report later.
No mud today, but my bike is still dirty from the last race.
I got back from Houston last week and there was a package waiting for me at work. Opened it up and a SWEET t-shirt from Erika. I love it!! Check out her stuff at http://www.tribabe.com/.
Over in San Rafael at China Camp. Nice place, but rocky and root-y trails. Craziest sight--about 10 turkeys, including the king turkey who must have weighed 30 pounds. That dude was HUGE!
Picture from the race, near the finish:
A big thanks to Kevin Smith for spending all day at the race and taking lots and lots of photos!
In Kona. And today, a grey, cold and windy day in SF. But I did book my condo for next October today! Something to look forward to!
