biking race 1:20:00
Finally a race I completed without mishap. (well, sort of) The Mighty 'C' cyclocross at Jefferson Barracks, beautiful warm day, much unlike cross season. Went out fast in front to avoid logjams, then settled back, let a bunch of people pass me, then started passing them back in the second lap, then a DEER lunged out of the underbush adjacent to the course, and crashed into my friend Rich just ahead of me. Stopped to make sure he was allright, meanwhile all the people I had just passed went by again. After that things settled down! Nice fast flowy course sharing some of the cross country course track. Got some of the places back, ended up 8th out of 24.
