I have to admit, I almost bagged it. Not that I was tired from yesterday, but I as bad as I sucked yesterday, I really expected to suck even worse today. And I did, but it was still a better day than yesterday. It really was a last minute “Go for it”
One think I was not ready for was that hill. That first climb is what put me off the back. That was the obstacle today. And 16 times up that hill has whupped my tail.
So the finish today was about the same as yesterday..lapped and way off. But again, I was allowed to finish, which I am grateful. It was good for training, and my morale, and I’m glad I decided to race yet again.
Weather was good for us again today. PC, but some squirrely winds.
Despite it all.. I had a blast, and I did not quit. That tired feeling I have tonight was worth all of it.
I know now my fitness level, and realize what I need to do to get back in real racing form.
Thanks to the promoters, the officials, volunteers, and the fine citizens of the great city of Grandview (thanks for the hospitality once again!)
