My assault of the cyclocross season is off to a slow crawl. But I'm going to do these Alpenrose Wednesday nighters because:
- They are awesome
- It forces me to work out hard
- I love riding at night
I missed the first race (out of town).
I unknowingly started in the wrong group for the second race, one minute back. Probably didn't make a difference in my result. Perhaps that's enough said right there.
Third race was last night. I knew timing would be terribly tight, and it was. I arrived 10 minutes before the start, which would give me just enough time to change, register and get on the line.
I got out my kit and started changing in the parking lot. Mid change, I realized I had forgotten my helmet. I had not allocated the five minutes required to find a loaner, so I was pretty much sunk. I found myself extremely agitated, pacing around and swearing under my breath, temporarily unaware of the fact I was not wearing any clothes.
I snapped out if it, quickly got dressed and walked away. I lost my underwear in the dark.
So ends Alpenrose Blind Date #3. Looking forward to episode 4. I'm leaving myself lots of room for improvement.
