From your favorite little boy...

13,000 Mile Ride

Cullen and Alex joined me to help celebrate my crossing the 13,000 mile mark for the year.

That's how many miles I have ridden in the last 365 days. If weather is mild over the next 24 days I could push that number up to finish the year at 14000. I'll have to average 307 miles a week to get there. That's not too crazy. Still if this past week's weather keeps up I'll be finishing up short of 14. Last night, with a 9 degree wind chill temp, I managed only 30 miles before I'd had enough.

Waterford Cyclo-Cross Race

14th place??

I have been trying to come up with some kind of positive post for this waterford race report but it's not really coming to me. Honestly, I felt pretty good and maybe that was the problem. I didn't go hard enough to feel horrible like I typically do in a cross race.

There were a few slippery greasey sections in the lap which I was not very excited about and an early race crash had me ride even more cautious in those spots.

Oh well, I finished, I wasn't last, and I didn't get lapped. I still got all that going for me.

I don't think I really dipped into suffer mode at waterford so that final ugly grimace was not there... So here's my happy "off the back" almost done look.
