OMBC at East Fork
The race went off with a bang with Nicole from IN and the Amandas leading the pain train. I did my best to hang in there but after we past the MTB trailhead I had to back off a bit. I was at max there and could feel even my fingers filling up with lactic acid.
Amanda "Superfly" Sproat was leading heading into the trail and I never saw her again. I passed Christina on Phase 1 who was fumbling with some mechanical issues. Some mechanicals made it a bummer race for her.
My legs were showing me no love at all today. I didn't have that "spark" nor the ability to ride fast at all. I did manage to finish in the money 4/7 (2 "pros" in my class...so 2nd place expert really) so that was good. My sweet hubby James was able to cheer me on and do bottles for me. My pooch Button was able to tag along and cheer me on as well.
The good news is that James and I taped the Euro Cup finals and the Spain won! Woo Hoo!
