|Calf marked, packet picked up. Time to poseur myself as a marathon XC racer. I'm a 50 year-old expert racer.|
|I did this twice. Look at the X-axis, that'll give you some climbing perspective|
|Karen snapping a picture right after I get a wee bit of air on my new whip! thanks Raceco.org|
Second lap and I'm dying! My first lap time is just average and I mentally prepare myself to just survive and tourist this thing towards the end. On a personal note, I passed a lot of youngsters, 1 male pro, prolly 5 pro women and I got mutually passed as well. Didn't care for the one lappers and their fresh kits and fresh legs/lung combo as they cruised by me.
|what you don't see are some spent legs on the second go 'round.|

Onwards to the next adventure!
