i just can't buy into the whole "gee, it's rained 3 inches in the last two days but the course is GRRRRREAT!!!" it may not be sloppy muddy, but i think i'll pass on slippery, tight singletrack. i'm so bummed. i really wanted to exploit my fitness that i have carried over from the gateway cup torture.
i may try to find some other races this month. it's so hard to fit in already though.
ug. life wins this round.
