Froze Toes is in the books. Lots of folks came out today to enjoy the blue skies, 40 degree temps and nasty wind. Felt like I was back in Iowa.
I rolled out at noon with the Pro/1/2/3 group for what was to be 62 miles of pure fun.
With a tail wind to start, things got moving fast with things splitting up even faster. After 8 miles I was off the back working in smaller groups. I settled into what would be a group 4 that changed several times during the day. We would loose one guy while picking up another along the way. I fell off at one point only to work my way back to the group.
The wind made for a tough day, in my group we all had thoughts of calling it a day after one lap (32 miles). And sure enough after battling a horrid head wind for what seemed like forever we made the turn for the last three miles and called it a day. It would have been pure torture to try it alone for another 32 miles. I may still be out there.
Even though I did not get the intended miles in I wanted I'm pleased with the overall effort. I'm in a good place for this time of year.
Next week will be this race, should be a blast!
