Well didn’t really plan on a pre-race post but some friends who actually read this thing demanded it. Why don’t they become ‘Followers’, you ask? Excellent question! Why don’t they become ‘Followers’!? Don’t they know that I could get that $50,000,000 dollar sponsorship from Specialized, Google, Disney, and Viagara if I had six Followers instead of two?? And, of course, I would split it with them.
Anyways, as far as MTB rides go this week, Sunday to Wednesday
each had a fast, intense, physically demanding ride; so Thursday was a gentler,
relaxing, recovery type of ride. No ride
yesterday, and today we (NewfieSteve, EnglishJim) are heading up to Ganaraska
to set up camp for the race tomorrow. We
are camping for the long weekend and doing the race). A
couple of other buddies (Fig and Centurion) are driving up tomorrow for the
race. (What’s with the weird names? Well this is a public forum, and apparently
my ‘friends’ don’t really appreciate being openly associated with me, given my
history in the film industry. Just
kidding...seriously. Sorry, Heidi.)
This week was a very busy work week for me. I also ended up a bachelor for a couple of
days. My LCW, Heidi, went to Kingston to
attend to our son’s grad from Royal Military College, while I stayed home to attend
to another son who had a severely infected foot (yeah I know, weird), and may have
required a rush to the doc or emerge at any moment. Anyhow, all is good; Heidi is back, son is
recovering, and I am actually looking to this race as an opportunity to relax
mentally (OK, insert your own joke about my mental capacity here).
Next week is also busy work-wise, and will require prep for
the Spring 8hr Epic Race next weekend!! For
now, though, the focus is on this weekend’s race. I will let you know how it goes!!
