Can I just sit here in the sand and play for a while?
I really liked this weekend's cross course. I loved the sand, the turns and the little up and down hills.
I did not like the mini pack of angry bees I somehow ran into.
I did like the benadryl.
I was surprised to see that I could make up time on the turns. That used to be a real weakness of mine. I was not surprised to see that I lost time in the fast straightaways. Although it does suck because that used to be a strength of mine. It gives me hope though, because I can get the fitness back. Or so I keep saying. I hope the techie skills stay. So elusive. Blah blah blah.
I love racing with a bevy of bellas. Even when I am lying face down in the sand, it makes me happy to see a swirl of blue and pink go past me. Go pffftttt Bellas pffft pooey Go!
Another thing that makes me happy is seeing the turnout for C women. Right on. I just wish we could be more appreciative of them being there. Instead of complaining about how tough they are to lap. As if they are just something in the way....
Its just a local cross race....lets think about whats really important in the long run. I. Just don't want anyone thinking that they are a less valued competitor than anyone else. Its tough being out on the course at the same time as women who have been doing this for years. Let's honor their bravery and cheer them on when passing, instead of cursing.
Cuz in a few years, they could be passing you.
I, on the other hand, haven't been passing anyone. Unless it was in the first 200 meters. And I am fine with that.
