1. Probably I'd wind up hurting myself trying to go super duper hard on a beach cruiser
2. Setup has unbendable category rules and most likely I wouldn't be 'allowed' to race in that division since I did the White Lake sprint in the Open category in early April (where I almost froze to death in the water)
I tried to get my friend to sign up for that division with me (that's assuming I could get in) but she thought I was joking and her response was something like 'LOL that's hilarious!'
So I'll be on support crew that morning.
I have been informally targeting some runs here in the fall. Mostly 5K's but in 2 weekends I'm doing the Magnificent Mile, which is a 1 mile race around State Capitol Building (am I supposed to capitalize all that? whatevs). I've never done a road mile like that - should be fun. How the heck do you pace something like that? I'm thinking you don't - you just run as hard as you can until you die.
Unfortunately, I won't exactly be well rested, but it's a mile. Who cares. On that Saturday we have our last open water swim event which I'll be volunteering at, and on that Sunday I'll be in charge of Junior Awesome all morning. Marty is doing the swim-bike of the FS Half that morning. My race isn't until Sunday afternoon. Originally I was going to do the run at the FS Half and we would have a Gaal/OSB relay team complete with a Logan hand-off, but then I realized that both races were on the same day. No, I don't want to run a half-marathon in the morning and then run a mile race in the afternoon.
And now, picture time. Because this blog is boring.
