Another weekend of Fun awaits!



So its Firehouse 50 weekend again. So soon!
Last year was amazing. I sorta had that combo of luck ( others didnt show up) and speed ( a pretty good time, considering the torrential downpours and wind) and I won the Best of Both.

As you can tell from my outfit it was cold. Northern WI is cold to begin with but that weekend was extra chilly. Anyways...I would love to get another child sized trophy but it all depends on who shows up.

Saturday is the 50 mile TT. A variety of options, 4 person, 2 person, mixed, single gender, and of course the Individual. Which i have done the last 2 years. Then sunday is the 15k run. AFter the run they combine times to award the BEST of BOTH. The kicker is that I could theoretically sit on the wheel of 3 fast men and get a faster time than doing it solo, and then run a 2 hour 15k and still win the BOB. So as i said, my goal is not to win the BOB, but if it happens, then cool. And if it doesnt happen i can blame it on the fact that I actually did the entire distance all alone, no wheel sucking involved:)

Either way its a great weekend, great people ( Rich is racing solo too! 10 min start behind me, so i have to keep the fox away!) a great course, lotsa rollers and some fun fast stretches too, and a good chance to continue to "train" in a race format!

Have a great weekend everyone!
