I felt not so hot on Tuesday afternoon but decided to make it to Midweek Mayhem regardless. Couldn’t justify skipping a nice night where lots of people would be out, and if I didn’t feel that good, no harm in just watching and chatting.
I did a warmup lap with Cindy, then she went out for her second with Jennifer and I did a lap with Chris. Felt ok but not speedy (do I every feel speedy anymore?) – good enough to race anyway. Was a few seconds behind a few people who I was in front of by a few seconds last week – that’s just how it works. Faded harder at the end, and have been sniffling a few days since. Overall I’m glad I went. Best ‘cross season ever so far for weather and attendance for me, and that’s pretty much what counts these days.
Trying to get the sniffles behind me for a double header ‘cross weekend at COP with the Saturday night race and the Sunday afternoon race. Looks like we might finally get some “real” ‘cross weather. Probably will spend a bunch of weekend time at office too.
This week was also FirstEnergy’s annual dinner. Good times were had, and the 10 year folks get a statue replica of one we have in the office (once the artist finishes them). In the meantime the place holder is a bottle of wine. Both are nice.
Finally saw the Gran Fondo Whistler Giro results, interesting. Fond memories, and memory that I should try to make time to ride more.
