MMBS - Spirit
10 AM

Bike 8:03 [3] 0.88 mi (6.6 mph) +98ft
shoes: Niner RKT RDO


Bike 1:17:28 [5] 10.73 mi (8.3 mph) +1305ft
shoes: Niner RKT RDO

Race! Comp women.

2 CCW laps at Spirit - lower trails, out to Kingsbury, back to Puker and up, then down All-Weather.

slow start but I felt like I built the effort throughout the race. 1st lap I followed Melane until the top of Puker and then pulled ahead in the downhill switchbacks. back and forth w a DEVO rider there as well. 2nd lap a bit more careful thru the lower singletrack, caught the DEVO rider on the Puker and tried to stay away - she almost caught me at the finish!

I think it's so cool to be racing against high schoolers. there were also several in the "A" race for women (Comp = B) and they are shredding. just so neat. it is motivating for me to try and improve my "short-track" speed. of course I would feel more confident about my chances in a hundo but...gotta work on your weaknesses!!!

Super nice route. To KCP, then (private property trail that we have permission to use) connector to Mary Lane, then Haines down to TH and loop of Home Brew, and back. Not a ton of road but I still wore road shoes!? Felt gross first couple miles and strong at the end.

Pretty nice run. Started out feeling gross as usual but warmed up and actually felt some pep in my step at the end. I like that. Okerstrom/KCP trails (v overgrown).

Neighborhood night out. There was a potluck so of course we went. Chatting w my parents neighbors, most of whom are retired and living the snow bird life. One of them asks what we do for fun, Erl and I say “adventure racing” and she said “oh, my son-in-law does that”. It’s so rare for someone to know what AR is!!! AND, her son-in-law happened to be visiting so we got to meet him and turns out he’s raced several USARA Nationals for GoLite/Timberland. Good chat!
