Incredibly disappointed with my last couple of races!
I’m sitting here ruminating about how to write up a re-cap of my long weekend here in Ohio. As my last 2 races were pretty rough, I should mention that and then move on.
My race on Friday was stellar, however. A little mud, a little technique. A hard fought 6th place.
We were staying at a lovely gentleman’s house in a great part of Cincinnatti. When you take a shower, it feels like you are covering yourself in oil.
I’m pretty wasted. On Sunday I could barely pedal my bike around the course and almost got lapped. I don’t write this looking for any sympathy. There is one photo of me from the race that shows it, I was just empty. I was warming up and it really is hard to tell how you are really going to feel in a race. I mean, we were all tired and knew we would not feel great but, damn. You fly all that way and figure hell, “I may as well start the damn race and see what happens.”
I got home, had a couple of rough flights and slept for 15 hours last night. Now I am playing catch up at work!
