Yesterday I rode with two friends of mine (we are all women), one 38 yrs. old, one 35 yrs. old and me 56 yrs old. We decide to ride to Solana Beach, which means we have to ride up and down Torrey Pines Hill, which is a very popular hill for cyclists. They always beat me on the flats, so I knew they would get a good start ahead of me. By the time I got to the base of the hill, I couldn't even see them, they were so far ahead. I kept my usual pace, chug chug chug, up the hill. About 3/4 of the way up the hill, I caught the 38 yr. old and passed her and darn near caught up to the 35 yr. old before she got to the top. I know if we had all started at the bottom of the hill at the same time, I would have beat them by a long shot, does this count as a win???
