JEEP was on the move today -->
Due to Global warming, it was 23degrees this morning when I got up at 4:30 to drive to Greenwood for this race.
Normally I sleep until my cat makes me rise. Since I weight a couple hundred pounds now, should have stayed in bed. I cut my Urquell consumption back to a few gallons this week, so I was not going to let that sacrafice go in vain.
Race start was a balmy 32degrees, and that was good because it it had warmed to 35, I would have over heated and dropped out. I wanted to stop, but I hung in there even though it was not apparent to spectators that my pace constituted running.
The race was well put on, but my watch marked the course as long by a minute. I'll go back next year. Their time or mine showed an embarrasing result for me, but I am getting used to that as it is easier than training.
I was 20/217, so as long as I am not holding up the parade, no one complains.
Here is my new "CREW". This was a happy bunch. The ladies still love me!
Back in the day I would ride my Harley to the race, collect my trophy and ride home.
That ain't mine, but I own Harley "Night Train". Heck, that jacket I have on is over 40 years old. The owner took this photo.
I met some folks:
Here is Mother and Daughter (Debbie Wylie and Holly Brown) and me:
I think they only gave 1st place in age groups, but that is fair.
Back in the day when I was a real racer, they gave out real trophys like these, so this is kinda "retro". My Bride and I won hundreds of tiny golden people. It is nice to see a race going the extra mile for those who showed up and worked thier ICE OFF.

I really need to either give this up or train a little.
