    @KenElPescadoPelado has them. In other news: I fucking podiumed today but was too drunk to attend awards. One part surprising , the other not so much.

    I participated in my first Granfondo yesterday. I only had 3 goals: don't crash, not last, no walks of shame. Success on all 3 fronts. I hate riding in close quarters and the ride starts with a climb so I was pretty anxious before the ride. The hub rode in it as well and although he said repeatedly he was just going to ride with me, he dropped me 10 km into the 160 km ride. I kept him in sight until the start of a KOM segment (I was just 2s behind him at that point) and then saw him start to power up the climb like he thought he could actually compete for the title. Anyhoo, I wasn't bothered, thought "go do your thing hub". Apparently at the top of the climb he decided to stop at the aid station and wait for me but being the master communicator he is (not), he didn't tell me this was his plan and when I cruised by some 90s after he finished the climb, he didn't notice me. I ended up finishing the ride 35 minutes ahead of him despite taking time to IG a selfie at the 90 km aid station. Eliminating aid-station stops and the waiting for me he claimed he was doing, his actual ride time was 6:02 compared to my 5:57. Consider me smug.

    Check out the matchy-matchiness of my jersey from last year (Coeur) with these bib shorts (Safetti) and the sock porn. I should get a time bonus.

    Having enjoyed myself so much at my first Fondo a couple of weeks ago, 3 days later, after maybe 1 or 2 glasses more wine than was advisable, I signed up for another one... just a baby Fondo (50 km). They made all the short distance riders start in the last corral. Maddening. It took me 30 minutes to go 11 km. After that I'd gotten around enough of the slow 100/160km riders that I could have some fun. There was no pack to ride with so I was really surprised at the finish when there was hardly anybody there!
    1st AG, 2nd female, 4th overall.
    I love my bike.

  • Half Marathon Time/Pacing Help


    Followed by many months of asking yourself if you could have run every mile just 1 second faster. And yes. Yes, of course you could. But you didn't.
  • 2018 Goals and Challenges

    I also challenge @kjrunnin to drink enough wine to build this tree out of the empties and put it up in her yard next Christmas.
    Isn't this supposed to be something difficult? That's a test of my crafty-handy skills, not my wine consumption... Kidding! (sort of)

    My goals for 2018 include doing a little less of certain things: less spending, less TV (trainer Netflix doesn't count), less social media, and yes... less wine. I hope the BC & California wine industries will be OK.

    Run 2018 kms.
    Find a run PB somewhere, anywhere, to prove my best days aren't behind me.
    Eliminate a debt.
    Do 18 things I've never done before.
    Read 25 books.

    I "raced" a 5K this weekend. When I woke up to more of the worst winter ever, time goals went out the window in favour of not falling and breaking a hip. I didn't break a hip and I wasn't last. Really what more could I hope for?

    I believe the look in my face here is "I can't believe trainer miles don't count in the March challenge"
