Happy pain

I just discovered the web browser version of the WordPress experience is much friendlier than the app I downloaded. Maybe now I’ll start posting more.

Anyway, this weekend is another trip to the races. First, to the flat track in Land O’ Lakes and then Sunday we’re racing the Lochloosa Enduro.

Last weekend I finished third (but no trophy; the club only awarded two trophies in the Women A class – bummer). The course was fast and my top speed was 49 mph with an average speed of 21. My bike ran really well for nearly all of the 40 miles in an hour and 45 minutes. I managed to keep my mistakes to a minimum except for one moment when I failed miserably and ended up face first crashing through muddy cow manure water in front of a crowd of spectators. At least I picked my bike up and it started right away and I didn’t need the guy’s help walking over toward me. I took off, soaking wet jersey sagging and smelly, cooled off and still having fun for two more laps.

No more crashes after that and I finished within 2 minutes of the leaders, so I think that’s some sort of record because I wasn’t even riding that hard due to my wet gloves, lack of grip and no goggles.
