biking race 1:19:58 [5]

Wow! Did the Cranky Monkey mountain bike race in Fountainhead Park, VA this morning. (Valerie was working results and got me an entry - pays to have friends in high places!) Fantastic place to bike - very few rocks, but lots of roots, lots of narrow track on sides of hills, bridges, up and down and, thankfully, the occasional "easy" section. Really, really fun. Rode in the beginner female class, came in 2nd (not as good as it sounds - only 4 finishers). Meant only one loop as opposed to two or three. Heart pounding, hard breathing the whole way. Total wuss on the downhills; but reasonably strong on the uphills. Jumped a few logs and rode up and over a couple of built up piles. Definitely would like to ride there again. Oh, wait, I will! That's where the AR in September starts.
