After a run (including a few nasty hill sprints — someone told me there’s a not-so-nice run-up on the course), Mr. Man and I took the fabulous bike I borrowed for this weekend’s race down the block for some practice. We set up one sad little “barrier” on the blacktop, since apparently soccer practice requires the grass field until ungodly hours of the night nowadays, and it provided me a little extra inspiration to not hurt myself on my first time out (though maybe I should be more concerned with the second attempt…).
However, now that I’ve survived a practice session & feel like this whole mount/dismount thing won’t kill me, I have to say that I’m really looking forward to this race. Yeah, I’m gonna get creamed by the Cs (I can race Cs, right?), but it’s going to be one hell of a lot of fun. Maybe I’ll even get to varmint with some friendly faces.
And even though I’m feeling rather confident, Mr. Man is definitely bringing the camera — why pass up an opportunity like this?
(Oh, and my costume is ready to rock…)
