100th post a good way to end the blogger experience

Well now that I've got the new site done to my liking until I learn a few more tricks in the HTML Code world.  I will be leaving this site behind and leaving you this link to the new one.  Stop by leave a comment, say hi, or whatever.  I've got a few more things I want to add but really wanted the guts done first.  

Save this on your blogs.

12 Hours of Blue Mounds is cancelled due to the large amount of rain during the overnight hours.

Firecracker was fun.  I really do like that course, but man do I have some work to do.  I had no start speed, but climbed very very well and stayed in the Big Ring during the whole ride.  I can't complain too much about that consider how friggin tanked I got over the fourth of July!!!  It was nice to see the familiar faces again, but I should have kept my focus oh least it wasn't 2 days before 24/9.

Looks like I'll be on superfan detail at Cheqfat this year as the 50 ways didn't pan out (I need costume ideas people).....what a bummer I feel I've been hosed this year on the lottery side of things no go to Iceman and Cheqfat.  Yeah you could say I am a little bitter, sure, why wouldn't I be.  At least 24/9 doesn't have a limit and lottery.

Levis 100

Since about last wednesday I've been battling a nasty stomach bug that really knocked me out and even missed a day and a half of work, but that wasn't going to stop me from riding Levis. Eric picked me up at around 5 am.....yuck!!! my stomach grumbling all the way there and still extremely tired, hell I was tired all the way up to the start, during the first lap, while sleeping in the back of the car, you get the story. I couldn't seem to get the sick feeling in my gut to go away and after talking with Lee about what happened out there and talking to Darko Marko and Creepyfriendly Esquire, I got pissed off enough to stop acting like a pussy and get out there and try it again and in a way I am glad I did as for one thing I didn't finish DFL and for another I got a good traning ride in. The downside was I couldn't keep NOTHING down which is hard to do a race like this with no stabilization of incoming to expended calories not good for endurance racing. Point is listen to your body take a break if you need to it's a long season. Anyway, I finished 4 laps, Jesse and Marko rocked the SS championship and now I get to do a WORS race this weekend in my favorite course in which causes me more injuries than I care to mention...Eau Claire.

Slimfast is good for endurance racing? I learned that this weekend, but kind of curious as I am still looking for something I can take down quickly and not choke...Ideas?

Secret Secret training session tonight has my confidence back to I wasn't at nine mile and we'll leave it at that.

As Scott listed, 33 days till nationals....YIPPEEE! It's going to be FAST this year and Chris...don't worry about the second log pile in the flower trail as it's already gone. The right hander in Ho Chi Minh got me I think I've been jinxed.
