Charm city weekend is a special weekend. I go outta town, stay in hotels full of interesting boarders, hit up Johnny Rads, hang with the team, friends, dogs, babies, competitors. Eat drink Merriness.
Seems I tend to be standing by the tape mostly during the masters 35+ race, I know so many of them, and its good racing to follow, all the battles, the top dogs, to the suffering dogs, I like those battles.
the masters are the working class. full of pride, determination, mistake, excuses, speed, smarts,...
I miss the race before mine, the 4's, and the race after. I do like the elite racing, clean, fast,
and team mates, chopping away, the Elites.
Just sitting in a quiet hotel, a Sunday 5:30, very quiet, calm, nice weather, a nap done. Kept the room an extra night, headed down to DC to see a band. Then back home. Home.
Kelly Cline got a good one in today,
"Charm City CX: Where 3yo's can ride in the sand and Elite Men and Women can't."
the officials let everyone except the Elites ride the sand. I'm not sure why?
its a good sport, I had two great days.
