Photos by Amy D Not knowing that Renee was close behind. Some where on the final lap, I swear Renee came out of the woods cross the lap finish area going into the 4th lap passing me like she was doping. I mean, she went past me like I was standing still or she just started racing. Nice finish by the way! Not too far behind her was fellow teammate Regina smoking up a storm and closing the gap on quite a few of us, nice work. I am sure I am next on your list :-)

Wonderful Colleen, demonstrating the creek crossing
Ty demonstrating the killer Equalizer Climb
I heard from the Smoking guy that Tilford might show up at the start on Sunday. Overall I give the course an A+. I look forward to racing this Sunday.

Yesterday evening after work I headed to Estabrook Park on the East side of town for my first cross practice. I e-mailed Angie and Regina ahead of time to see if anyone else was going. Angela stated she would be there around 5:30ish. I pulled in the parking lot to see practice was in full swing. Luckily Angela let Russell know I was coming since I would need extra special education on this stuff. I think Russell was suckered into this last minute :-) He started off with the basics of proper dismounting and mounting on the bike. This went quite smoothly and I think I caught on quickly. Russell then went on to show me the proper way of holding my bike after dismounting, running and hill climbs. I even got a full inspection of my bike and was told the water bottle cage has to go, UGH!, and I need some thingy to prevent my front chain from slipping. After my lesson we headed off for a lap and I never realized how fricken fast this type of riding is. I did OK on the first lap until I decided Angie should get a picture of me showing off my new skills. Thanks again guys for being there for my first cross experience. Thank you Russell for the awesome one on one instruction and the low down of the cross scene! I now feel ready to have some fun.
