Race Report: Winter Short Track #3

Let’s Cut to the Conclusion Mission, possible. 2nd place, behind a super strong (pro) Debbie, and in front of a damn good field. I’m not going to give you play by play but here are cliff notes. Went into the woods on first lap 3/4 behind…

Charlotte Winter Short Track Series

Race Preview: Charlotte Winter Short Track #3

Today was the first time in this race series I’ve been able to sleep in. Maybe the nerves are calming down and I am realizing I don’t have to wake up at 7am to dance around in spandex all morning. Restless. Excited. Hopeful. Is today the day I’ll earn myself a place on the podium? My goals for today are simple. Solid, consistent, lap times….

Ladies Night, a Guest Post

I belong to a newborn bike team that was formed by a popular LBS as a way to bring more cyclists into the sport. I’m one of three women on the co-ed team and, through sheer terror that I will lose any fitness and no longer be able to keep up, I’m the most consistent woman on the group rides in town.

Race Report: Winter Short Track #2

Lesbi-honest.…going into this race I was super pumped but had pretty realistic expectations. My legs would be loaded and weighed down from the previous day’s threshold test, plus I had a 3 hour mountain bike ride planned for Monday.
