Another weekend cross race = more mud!
So far the weather has been pretty great for November. I think it's because I'm building up a Mukluk. Since I want it to snow, the weather is staying nice. Either way I have no complaints. Scott and I went for a 3 hour mountain bike ride on Saturday and then I raced Kisscross on Sunday. And there was no need for layers....
My cross race went pretty well, minus the fact that I got off my bike before the finish line. As I was getting close someone yelled "that's it!" and I took those words literally. I completely came to a standstill and got off my bike before I realized that I still had one more set of barriers to go over. I think I would have made the top 10 overall, but a few guys passed me when I got off my bike.
After the race I had some lunch and then got very, very sleepy. I had made plans to join friends for the dirty herd run (a weekly group that runs trails) so I forced myself back off the couch and threw on some running shoes. I'm glad that I went. I'm starting to run during the off-season and running trail is WAY more fun then the road.
I was going to go into a very long post about how I wore the wrong shoes but I'm skipping all that. The good news is that my feet and ankles survived. Now it's time to ride. Not only did I get out of work early, but it's 60 degrees (in NOVEMBER) and my bike is by the door. I'm outta here!
