After Nationals I came down with a serious case of post-race-season-affected-disorder. Gah!
In my race report I wrote that I'm really lucky if all I have to worry about is a bad race. That is totally true. But it did not stop me from getting very mad/sad about the whole affair. I've discovered that I have a hard time with letting bad races go :-) I'm also still not recovered from the whole Nationals sickness which also does not help things. It sucks to go from feeling like I was in great shape to feeling like I can barely ride a bike. My poor coach...I feel like I'm sending him emails every other day asking him if it's OK to still feel like crap. He says yes :-)
But oh well...it's time to move on. There's way too many cool things happening around here to mope around.
Starting with......LADIES NIGHT @ The Ada Bike Shop on Tuesday, November 13th!!!
Thanks to the Ada Bike Shop for continuing to support both women in cycling and also great charities. This time Ladies night will benefit Heartside Gallery, which provides a safe environment for people to express themselves through art. Over the last month they have been focusing on "bike-themed" art and it will all be on display at the bike shop for ladies night. SO freaking cool.
An example of one of the pictures that will be on display is below...I love it! Something about the pictures just makes me happy...probably because it involves the finish line. It just might be coming home with me!!!
After yoga there will be the usual fun. Drinks, good food and lots of time to look at all the art on display. What better way is there to celebrate the end of the summer race season then with a bunch of awesome ladies???
