I lost my full bottle, I think, maybe on the fourth or fifth lap, of 35.
The race was hot, fast, hard.
I'm glad that I like some of the old school training, you know train in the rain race in the rain thinking.
once in a while I'll do a bonker ride, take one bottle out with me, knowing that I'm just going to end up a little crossed-eyed. bonked
so many times today I thought about how to pull up, to quit, the race, I could not think of an excuse... so I would attack. Some of that bonker training experience came back to me, the training paid off, and I made it to the end. 15th. With that I'm am quite happy.
somewhere in all these laps I though of pulling on a large cowboy hat, it'd be full of cold water, I'd ride a bit, with it on my head, then take a good slug of it, Glug, Glug, Glug, and pedal on.
good night. d.
