talk about an a++ whooping

holy cow, worse race performance to date.

during the race I had a small panic attack because my face was so hot and I went to touch it and there was no sweat.

i have been so sick and dehydrated the last time they gave me medicine for my ear I got two IV bags of fluid. It stressed me out racing like I shouldn't even be there. I decided then and there I am going to take it easy, but I didn't even have to try to take it easy, my fastest pace was like a slug, I really rode my bike and ran in slow motion. It was AWFUL!

however, that aside, it had to be the most fun endings of race ever. One teammate from each team that came in before a certain cut off were in a real live 5k (with bibs and an announcer) in a stadium with a bunch of adventure racer hecklers! I LOVED IT.

we screamed, "Rudy, Rudy" as Mac crossed last over the finish line. He still had a great time for someone who literally had to drag me through the entire race and he was running up against Bone, Miles, H, Etc.. so of the ten that were eligible to run he did amazing!

The Beast

I decided blogging for me will all be about copy and paste...:). Too many typos.

but I better copy this note because I may never see my name in the lead again.

ha. that sounded bad. knock on wood. knock, knock, knock. however there is a race tonight. I am pretty sick (due to ear medication) and D has an injured foot (no excuses) but we are going out to have fun and get on our feet and time in the saddle!

so here it my 15 minutes of fame (ok it might be 5 seconds but if you read two hundred times like I did then it could be 15 minutes.)

BEAST #4 is just around the corner, and as the temperatures are heating up so are the point standings!

Looks like Cory Systma has a sizeable lead over Jeff Brink, but there are several racers with just two races so far (best three are counted), that could change things drastically. In the womens category, Jill Purcell is ahead, but Connie Ness or Sarah Bruce could take over 1st with a strong performance.
