to the lottery for entering the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race. But just getting so far as to register for the lottery took an hour an a half on a jammed website. But I'm this far, and I have to treat it every day as if I'm doing the race. Let the serious training begin!
This morning: oatmeal and berries instead of the fat muffins/bread I've been eating for the holiday.
The race might put me in the hospital, knowing my propensity for broken bones and crashing and such--but as Shelby (Julia Roberts)in Steel Magnolias said, "I'd rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothin' special." Me, too. In this case, it's 12 hours of wonderful agony rather than a lifetime of nothin' special.
So let the training begin!
