I have the worst luck ever

I have spent the last 2 weeks obsessing about 24 hours of Moab. I put my dually together, I spruced it up with nice parts (stolen from my singlespeed, but still nice), I borrowed a couple sets of lights from generous folks, I got a USAC license for the first time in probably 5 years, I lost sleep thinking about riding fast at night…

And this morning a friend stopped by to ask if I was feeling sick. Why, yes, as a matter of fact I felt a bit under the weather. Turns out he has H1N1 and just found out. So I probably have it too.

Unless a miracle occurs and I wake up feeling great, it looks like my entry fee, license fee, and hard work are down the crapper.

The perfect end to a race season in which I failed to complete a single event longer than half an hour, I suppose. Sure would be nice to catch a break, though.
