After I got up this morning I listened to the radio while laying in bed and the weatherman stated it had been raining all morning. I get up and look outside...........dang it. OK decision time. So I made the decision to call Dawn to come down so we could go to the shop and size her for a full suspension rig. So, no Bay's race for me tonight. My next engagement will be:
I have boycotted this race for the past couple of years because of the FAILURE of the crew to keep enough water at the second rest area. (yes they ran out of water at this station 2 years in a row) After a couple of proper emails to the director and some very poor responses I decided to keep my hard earned $$ and not give it to him. Those two years failed to see him max his 400 rider limit. This year he has filled the quota and there are 400 riders and registration closed early this year. Yes, I'm going to this and yes it's expensive but it's such a cool event. I don't have any aspirations of winning or glory. I do this race to challenge myself, sort of a "how are you feeling this year scoob" kinda ride. 63 miles and 11K of climbing will take it's toll and I always dread seeing Kitsuma for the 2nd time but I enjoy it. So come Sunday, hello Old Fort, N.C.!
PS: who in the heck designs stuff for most bike races? The T-shirt artwork for most all shirts suck!
Ok the big whitetruck is officially in the driveway and I have all kinds of ideas what I would "like" to do with it but realistically I'm not sure yet. I do have some ideas though.....
