Yay – I biked with no issues (other than soreness) today! I’m feeling pretty good. This week was supposed to be the usual, with a little more speed (Z3):
But instead you’ll see I took quite a few days of rest and eased into the workouts:
I have no regrets though – at this point, what’s done is done and I just have one week more week of taper before the big race!
I know some of you liked the his & hers race medals holders I mentioned the other day. I also liked them so much, that I decided my race bib numbers needed a home as well. I bought this “hers” race bib display from Runningonthewall.com. The store has all sorts of sizes, quotes, and you can even make a custom one. I just love it! I’m really big on everything having its own place, so I love an organized spot to hang my race bibs.
David got the “his” version of the race bib holder, because he had kept almost all of his race bibs over the past years – 38 I think! He has a great way to keep memories of the race – on the bib he writes a few sentences of important things from the race: weather, who he was with, the course, and any fun memories. It was fun going through his bibs and reminiscing. Here are a few of my favorites:
- 2009 MS150: Brittany + others met us for the start @ 7:15 to get to Austin ~1:30. Brittany’s dad rode with us. He was a strong rider. Wind in our face at 10-15mph, sunny day. Bryan’s friend hurt his balls.
- 2010 Hotter n’ Hell 100mile Bike: Rode with Chris, Brittany, Bryan. Late looking for spot. Cool @ first. knee hurting @ mile 85. Stopped for beer @ mile 98. Chris pulled a lot. Bryan cramped up. Water lines were poorly organized.
- 2010 SF Bay to Breakers: Cold & rainy. Wore coconut bra with Britt & her cousins.
Can’t wait to add one more bib to the collection next weekend!
