Wendy Park Cross Opener
What a great day it was. Great team participation with our largest cross event ever. We had 147 racers show up for the sufferfest on a beautiful day with lots of happenings going on in Downtown Cleveland, mainly the Browns playing right across the river from us. Our event had a much better ending than the Browns game though. Thanks to everyone that came out and raced, you guys and gals are awesome. The A race was hard, I was tired and pretty achy but there was no way I was going to sit this one out and watch. I decided literally a minute before the race started while sitting on the top tube of my bike as I scanned the line-up that maybe finishing top 20 and not getting lapped was going to be my goal for the day. Well I didn't get lapped and I don't know how... My legs on the last 2 laps, especially on the short steep climbs were out of order. I pushed hard throughout though with my heart rate averaging 174, so I know I worked my butt off. Its hard racing against, or should I say, "with" the young guys, but I keep telling myself it's going to make me stronger, that's if it doesn't kill me first...... :-)
