Well, maybe that was a sign or maybe it was a confirmation. GET OFF THE BIKE NOW! And so it is. My season is done. I am off the bike for the next few weeks. I will pedal lightly on the fluid trainer this week just to get the ankle moving again and to regain its range of motion, but no more training or racing. Iowa City was calling but not anymore. You have to end a season at some point.
While it was cold in Minneapolis for the State CX race Winona was getting dumped on. I left the day before the race through snow and crappy roads. I got to Jesse's with a van that looked like it had been to hell and back. Had this snow made it to the Twin Cities the cross race would have been brutal. Instead, it was cold, I was wired from Jesse's crazy coffee making expertise, and I was just looking for one thing out of the race.......some fun. If I got anything from cross racing this year it was having fun. Congrats to Bjorn on the win. He is a cross maniac. Big congrats to Doug on his second MN State title.
Whew, now what? End-of the-year review once I have settled enough to think about it.
Bad new from Tom "Thor" Zirbel out of Boulder. Masa Grill has closed. That just leaves the big three: Chipotle, Qdoba, and Illegal Pete's.
I will have a good blog about the season as a whole and what I am up to next soon enough. I have some ice cream and beer consumption to catch up on before the weightroom and next season begins to call. Ciao -Ian
