I'm Getting To It, I Promise

To those of you have have emailed/IMed/Facebooked me about the last two weeks of racing...I promise to get that written up this weekend. Here is the short story of the last 14 days:

1. Sixth at Crusade #5 at Astoria. OK race, was still having a hard time with the lungs being clogged and staying ON my bike.

2. No idea where I finished for Crusade #6. The HV gals rode together at the back of the women's race dressed as french maids. We are in race videos here and here.

3. Took an entire week off for personal reasons. No commuting, no training.

4. Won the Category B State Championship on Saturday. Ricardo also won his race and my mom was there to watch, so it was a big day. The course is now my all time favorite and the folks did a fabulous job of running the event. The trophies they provided for the winners set the bar high for state championship events next year.

5. The win Sunday meant a mandatory upgrade to the A's. I didn't get "the email," but I know the rules and figured that lining up with the B's on Sunday would have been bad form. I raced singlespeed instead and finished 110th out of 140. I had a blast. It was fun, really fucking hard and there was no pressure.

I'll post real race reports and photos this weekend. I'm going to put my big girl pants on and race with the A's at Barton this weekend. As long as I remember the "no pressure" mantra, it should be fun.

Right on, Lindsay. You are more than capable of racing with the A's for an hour- I have seen you kill it in road races for three hours. Don't sell yourself short- you're an awesome racer.
