A good weekend, also some sad news.

For those of you waiting with bated breath for my race report, I don’t have one.

That’s right, I wussed out when I looked out the window and saw trees bending over sideways in the wind (ok, exaggeration, but we did have some 50mph gusts) and elected to go for a run and lift some weights at the rec center with Sarah. I’m willing to suffer at the back of a bike race; it’s happened many times, but if it’s really miserable weather and I have to spend twice as much time driving as racing? No thanks.

Fuentes, Nick, and Eszter raced, though. Ezter and Fuentes both were 4th, Nick was 9th. There were 60 freaking racers in the Men’s race! Wow! Nick then raced the SS race and got second (what a stud!)

If someone writes a race report, I’ll post it up.

We also had to make a hard decision and give up our old yellow lab Snickers to the humane society – where he will hopefully find a home with no stairs and a sunny spot to sleep in. We’re very sad, but it was only a matter of time before he got badly hurt falling down the stairs (our condo is a split level with no ground floor) so we had to do something, and this was the best option for him.

In any case, hopefully I’ll have a productive week and maybe we’ll *finally* see those 44mm head tubes from True Temper soon.
