Last week was my first week back since Nationals and already the smack talking is in full force. On Friday Jason and I had another race and this time I took the win! Yessssss! It makes up for my stair defeat this summer :-)
Anyways, our race was pretty simple. Chug a beer and then race to Brewery Vivant, which was less then 3 miles away from our start. Since I
I definitely need to work on my chugging skills (my parent's will be so proud). I was only half-way through my bottle when Jason took off.
I ended up catching Jason and took the win by 8 seconds...phew. I never knew that 2.9 miles could be that painful. I went straight from doing two weeks of 1-hour recovery rides to sprinting up a hill on a fat bike. IT HURT a lot!!!! I seriously felt like my lungs were going to collapse.
What started out as a challenge has turned into a full on "beer-cat" series. Right now I'm the leader but a few more friends are in, and t-shirts and a trophy are being made. I might have to ask my coach for some workouts to prepare for these :-)
The rest of the weekend went by pretty quickly. Early Saturday Scott and I met Juli and her husband at the Ada Bike Shop to watch her make a new purchase. Technically they didn't need us to be there but I was too excited to stay at home!!! Plus Juli and I did need to discuss Mukluk colors....always important!
And speaking of Nationals, my blog post about it is finally up on the Salsa website. People keep asking if I am interested in doing Leadville. Now I can just refer them to my post, tell them to read it and then they will know my answer :-)
