weekend report

It is disappointing that I finally get to race at my favorite trail in the area and I cramp so badly I don't finish. Landahl was dried up plenty enough for a good race. I moved into the lead after the first lap, I thought I was feeling fine and motoring right along. The start of the third lap I got the twinge inside of my quad, I soft pedaled and drank, but when i tried to get back going my left hamstring and right quad locked up and I spent minutes along the trail in pretty awful pain. I am not sure if I was not recovered from DK or just what was wrong, but it is disappointing. Well done Steve Jarrett on another solid performance.

Amber and I took our new Electra cruisers and went to her grandparents house in Manhattan, KS for a fun little get away. We meet Amber's mom who had brought Amber's old cruiser from Great Bend and joined us for some sightseeing. We rode around the campus on Sunday, and circled town on Monday morning on the bike path. It was a ton of fun, Cruiser riding is less painful.

Don't worry man. None of the Emporia DK riders even wanted to attempt a race so soon!

Bummer on the cramps. Those suckers hurt.

That sucks about the cramps but thanks for the push up that rocky section. I was in my own world of hurt after nailing my head on one of those low branches and almost knocking myself out (ouch). Hope to see you back at Landahl in two weeks for some more fun.
