Seven years ago I fell in love with cross in the middle of a muddy pumpkin patch.
Right now I miss red wine, rocky trails, espresso, and cyclocross.
Having said that, I love being pregnant right now.
I am in awe of the kicks and movement I feel, now a predictable cycle of activity and inactivity throughout the day.
Baby responds to cold drinks, ice cream, and anything sweet...
Interestingly, Bowie and Jimmy Cliff also elicit lots of movement when I am driving.
How's that for a race report?
If I had raced Charm City today (you know, not in my current "state"), I imagine it would have gone something like this:
I fought like hell to not get lapped by Nikki or Helen Wyman, but ultimately got pulled with a lap to go...Conditions were amazing, but damn, it was HOT! Charm City remains one of my favorite races and I can't wait for day two. Too nervous to sleep, too destroyed to do anything else.
