This past week has been a little rough. But this morning's inbox made up for that. Kate Beckinsale, my #1 Hollywood crush, is Esquire's Sexiest Woman of the Year.
She's an absolute dream.
I raced my first cross on Sunday. It was very cool. I finally got my ebay bike up and running.
The course was insane climbing followed by more insane downhills. There were so many braking bumps that it was simply a survival of the person who crashed the least. There were so many crashes, it looked like a muddy buddy run. If I would have had any sense about me, I would have just ridden the full suspension mtn bike. I had fun though.
There were the usual banter fans. This one guy put a dollar in a beer bottle and he only let you grab it if you were going fast (more likely to crash). I definitely saw at least 4 boomer crashes there. What fun.
I am taking some time off from training so dont expect to see too many results this cross season. I just want to have fun.
I am riding 100 miles for the Lance Armstrong Foundation 2 weeks from Sunday. I would very much appreciate any donation that you can muster. You can donate here:
Cancer is a funny thing. It can strike at any time. My roommate lost his mother last week to colon cancer. She only started complaining of pain in Aug. Then, in just a few short weeks, she is gone. My life is so busy with MBA-land, looking for a job, and trying to do as much as possible, I am happy that I am able to get away for a couple days to pay my respects, raise some cash for cancer survivorship, and just think about how fortunate I am to have my health.
Be thankful for your health today.
