Random shot of me, at least she didn't focus in on my nose hairs.
It was a killer five-way race at the front tonight. At one point, I crashed into another rider who had crashed in the sand pit. Ouch. Somehow, I fought back to the leaders, made a move, and finished 2nd. My heart rate hit 185 bpm for the last two minutes of the race, and averaged 175 for the entire 42 minutes.
Cyclocross is HARD!

Never leave your phone alone!
Eli in his TOO-COOL pose.
Every year since 2005, we've had kids in the Gateway cup races. Hanna and Tyson started then in the 4 and 5 year old groups. Eli started just a couple of years later in the little guys group. The older kids have become too old for the kids races, leaving Eli as the only one. Fine by him.
He and I did sprints one night a couple of weeks ago, and he's taken that bit of instruction to it's obvious conclusion: he's one fast kid in a straight line. He mopped up on Friday night at Lafayette Square, and did the same thing on Saturday at St. Francis. Then a funny thing happened....he didn't race The Hill. That's the one place we have never missed. But, we did a family outing to Johnson's Shut-Ins so that's compensation. Still, it was a little weird to miss The Hill.
