This weekend's racing... the bad (the racing) and the good (Event's Book)

The bad:

Touched the pavement, as it were, on Saturday at an ad-hoc criterium. Spent the remainder of the evening repairing the bike, dressing the wounds, and subsequently forgetting to eat dinner.

Spent last night waking up every time I rolled over, overslept, and didn't eat breakfast. Believe it or not, the poor decisions made (I'll eat on the way...) resulted in a sub-par performance.



The good:

Got to meet the (in)famous EventServices; who provided me a signed copy of his book. Just spent the last three hours reading it from cover-to-cover. Really. Thanks, Event - great book, I really did enjoy it.

Of course!

There were a couple of lighthearted jokes, yes, but I did not inspire the ire.
