Two races to post about tonight.

Greenbrier AMBC-
Experienced a small miracle with the weather holding out just in time for the race.  When Gunnar and I left in the morning in the team Sprinter van we had some light rain.  Every mile we drove the clouds parted and by the start of the race, the sun was shining and it was starting to actually get hot out.As soon as we pulled out of the parking lot and hit the interstate, it poured rain the whole way home. 

Had an awesome race here last year.  One of those superman days that only comes once or twice each season.  This year, the legs didn't feel quite as good as then but was deceiving because my time was 3 minutes faster last year, even with the new little  piece of singletrack along the lake.  Not bad for feeling like a piece of garbage. 


The man in the middle.
 Another good result following a mediocre performance.  The first race that my parents have been too for as long as I can remember.  The last two weeks I've been doing a lot of intensity and volume, and its starting to weigh heavy on me.  Taking it easy this week, with lots of shut-eye and relaxing, and a weekend off of racing (plus some work to pay the bills) and I'll be ready to kill it for the next chunk of racing.  Looking for that superman day.  On deck in the coming weeks:  Cascade Classic, Iron Hill, and then a sweet road trip to Texas for the ProXCT race at Lance's place.
