First of all, here is the link to my interview with Mackenzie Woodring. And there's still time to get in the running to win a pair of Optic Nerve Omnium PM sunglasses. All you have to do is go to the archived link (Click HERE!), listen, and then leave a comment about the show, racing Iceman or any tips you have learned from racing and/or riding.
It was great talking with Mackenzie and I hope to have her back on the show after cyclocross season. She's incredibly supportive of other female racers getting into the sport and I have witnessed first hand how freaking fast she is. I will never forget this ride...where I tried to stay on her wheel going up a hill and blew up before I even reached the top. I think I'm scarred for life by that blow-up. It was probably the closest I've ever come to passing out :-)
Anyways, the chance to comment and qualify for a chance to win the Optic Nerve Sunglasses goes until Wednesday and then we will announce the winner.
Now for my weekend...it felt a bit like a roller coaster. Everything about the weekend felt very Jekyll and Hyde. It was either cloudy and raining or sunny and dry, and I was either really happy or crying like a baby. Yikes!
Saturday I was up bright and early to ride my Beargrease up to Merrell Trail. The Grand Rapids Bicycle Company had a demo day there and I was able to ride with a bunch of friends. It was a really great day.
Sunday I lucked out with another sunny day.
Now I'm fully enjoying a recovery day by eating Peanut Butter Cup ice cream. Pretty sure it's going to help immensely :-)
