Remember the guy who came up to me at one of my first races and said "What are you doing here? You're obviously not serious."? Well, I do.
I already know the basket's a little silly. That's just how I roll.
I already know I should change to toe clips. But they hurt my sensitive little paws.
What I didn't know before is that I am a racer. Make that Racer with a capital R. Even if I never make it beyond the novice category, this is a new part of my identity as a cyclist.
I placed third last night and the competition were no slouches. I won third overall for the month of August and once again, the competition gave me a run for my money. Go girls!
