    Yeah, I'll be there...I'm 80% stoked to be racing, and 80% hating the the narrow but otherwise featureless course.

    jmikami, you're spot on with your comments. I didn't detail this in the workout summary above, but the hour clock starts with the sprints, after a half-hour easy warm-up. 2 or 3 of the sprints are...

    Boring race coming up this weekend!

    I'm a big guy so I like flatter courses. This weekend's race, which is only the second race of the season here in CO, is pancake flat. It's a 100' RR - 3 laps...
