(Taunting:) I-i got a me-dal, I-i got a me-dal!
Finally! After five years of racing the Downieville Classic, trying desperately to break 3 hours, I did it. I knocked 22 minutes off my fastest time, for a commanding 2:44, second place in Sport Senior Women. The chick who beat me was like 19 years old, too. She's only gonna get older and slower as the years go on, while I -- a late bloomer -- am barely hittin my prime.
The Downieville Classic is like a roller-coaster. You work up the courage to do it, axiety yourself silly at the starting line, can't believe you're actually doing it while you're actually doing it, and then the second it's over, you can't wait to do it again. Here's to next year!
