W - Take 2

It's hard to update a blog from work....craziest thing....customers keep coming in and interuppting me...dang

Anyway it's been a week since the last update....the worst thing about vacation is getting back to work and picking up the missing pieces....

The best thing about vacation was not being at work for a week and I only got 3 phone calls from work while I was gone...not bad

The real best thing about vacaction was mtbing here and here.

Lots of relaxation, good food, read a sweet book called 'Population 485' about Wisco. Also did some brutally painful VO2 intervals in a rain storm on thurs.

We cut home a little early because we weren't sure what to do with Rosco during the race. So it was home Friday, prep Sat, Race Sunday.

After all the rest I was ready to go for WORS # 3 Marathon style.

The start looked like that....Doug, Jesse, and I sharing the workload....

Then we finished Lap 1 it started raining and we lost Doug...it looked like that....
End of Lap 2 Jesse throws down a big attack....Mike Phillips is there, then gone, then back again, Chris P and I bridge the gap.
Lap 3 gets really muddy and fatigue starts to settle, we are catching lots of lapped traffic. I take some pulls through some singletrack. A lapped rider crashes into me, I get up pass him, then hear Chris or Jesse battling with the same guy... I pop out of the and go to TT mode...
Last lap is painful but I kept going faster and faster to take my 2nd Wors win of the season.
I was blown away when Marko finished 2nd only 1:00 min back...he must have been killing it or maybe not cause I found this picture....

To me it looks like my wife yelling, "On your right" while in the big dog and passing Marko in the mud...maybe not though....
here are some HR numbers, wind speeds, lap times, temps, and maps to study for the tech geeks from the Garmin
Props to Andrea for getting 2nd overall in SPORT after graduating from Nursing School and not really riding for 4 years.
Thanks to Rusty for the photos...
The sad part of the day was when Michelle Tim's wife watched me ride by in the lead, said nothing, then proceeded to cheer for Mike and Chris...2 non pcw racers....heartbreaking...
