well sorry for taking so long to post this one. i went and raced down in newton at the cross race a couple of weeks ago. it was good to taste blood from the lungs again. havent had any real efforts sinces state crit. its started out with me and titties lined up on the front along with sum others. it was decently spread apart and then tony came up late and wanted to squeeze in there with us. it should have been a sign of things to come. as paulos blew the whistle i jumped and got clipped in took one pedal stroke and all the sudden tonys leaning on me and then he rights himself and that caused me to roll into titties and to keep from wreckin titties out i had to slow down in which somebody hit me from behind. what a damn mess so needless to say i ended up at the first corner 8 or nine wheels back. not where i want to be. the rest of the race was about the same luck. on the second lap i thought the pedaling got awfully hard so a i pedal for another half lap or so thinking what the fuck, is a break rubbing, nope, some bearing i don't know about bad, nope something wrong wih my derailleur, yep. as i looked down i had a fucking course marker stuck in that derailleur threw both of the wheels. so i stopped and yanked it out and the flag part was still stuck wrapped around one wheel. so i pedaled up to the pit where paul varnum was waiting to help me out. then after that there was no way to make up that ground so i had a "fun" rest of the race and put putted around by my self in no mans land noticing what a nice day it was.
sucks some days it goes right and some days it goes wrong. not saying that my fitness is there but at least i got an excuse this time.
went out on a three and a half hour gravel grinder today. it started out great and then it rained and then it got windy and then the roads turned to shit, and then i got cold, and then i got home and jumped in the shower, and then i made pigs in a blanket, and then clark came over and gave me a beer and i shared my pigs in a blanket, and then clark left, and then i did some laundry. so it turned out to be an alright day.
well got to go to d-port this weekend and try to do good at cross. we will see i guess. titties and i are making the trip together, in the love machine, that ought to be a hoot.
wonder what titties is gonna try and pull in the love machine now that hes a single man again....
