A Rare Occurrence In Mesa, Arizona
The Brumby riders left from their usual 5 a.m. spot for the Las Sendes two loop course. About 45 minutes into the ride, it started to pour. And I mean, really dump. The wind whipped us around like little paper kites on a string. And the tire sprays left little Jackson Pollack-esque mud splatters on everyone's backs.
I tried to challenge my inner Tour de Francer -- a die hard cyclists who rides in rain or snow, over cobbles/pave. But I was grumpy and slow and my socks were getting soaked. So one lap into it, I turned for home, and my nice Restoration Hardware sheets. Man, that was a smart move.
In other news, on this Fallish afternoon, I'm home working away on my computer. And wanted to share with you this website:
Rocky Mountain Sports Calendar. It lists a ton of Southwestern races for tris and marathons and halfs and open water swims.
And also wanted to remind you to buy these: Fuel Belt Lace Locks before your next tri. As I was practicing transitions with a friend this week, I failed to tell her about the fantasticalness of these little gadgets, which allow you to tighten your shoelaces without tying them.
I hope this is officially the start of Fall. We Arizonans deserve it. And it will be nice to ride tomorrow on my nice, clean bike.
