Not so HOT!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Caren Ware @ 10:30 am

So here goes pioneering timing in a pioneering part of the country.  Read about CYCLOCROSS, not Psycho in a blog in October.  Here is the part two of the race series.  Now it is forming more into the Psycho part of events.  It is purposely done in mystery weather conditions. Snow is falling today.  Well, more like frozen, beady pebbles.  The wind is biting.  The chill factor registering near zero.  The joke becomes.  “What is the temperature?  There is none today.”  But the spirit of the ‘pioneering’ people are warm.  The conditions are just a part of them.  And they live for it, through it, about it. Check these little tykes out doing events on wood and itsy bikes…in the snow.  And the open classes are flashing smiles at us each lap they fast, thrilled to be in this peak condition and just being outdoors.  I have on every California layer I own, still waiting for my Patagonia down,  Mountain Hard Wear Gortex, Smartwool Socks, Icebreaker wool panties,  Outdoor Research mitts, Mamut/Marmot/Prana body layers  from the pro deals working at Skinny Skis.  I feel and look like ‘puff woman’ in all these pseudo layers.  I spent my entire summer earnings at Skinny skis on the layers in route. I will need them.  All was very adventurous until this yellow warning sign popped up on my printer screen.  SERIOUSLY!!!  My body would like to go into room temperature right now.
