Hi RM!
I've been overwhelmed with a training course I'm going through at work. I finally have a day off tomorrow, and if I get up in time I'll be out there in my Amici Veloci jersey on a red Giant OCR3. I haven't been able to ride much lately, so if I do go, you'll be blowing by me since I'm terribly out of shape!!!!
I had plans to go for sure a month or so ago, but back then I didn't realize what this training course was going to put me through.

I was all ready to go to Goodyear when my father in law called needing things. He's 84 with Alzheimer's and lives in East Mesa. So instead of heading west, I hopped on the bike and headed east to take care of him. I really wanted to do the ride and meet a real IRONWOMAN! That's the third ride this year I paid for and didn't get to do !!!!

well I know the feeling! I didn't get to ride it either!! My 2007 BMW with the whopping 11k miles on it decided to take a crap on me so I had to take it to the shop first thing this morning! ARGH!!! Turns out it was BAD and it's a good thing I got it in- bad rear main seal whatever that is. All I know is the guy at the dealer prefaced it with " I don't want to tell you youve got a lemon BUT....." :eek:
The worst part was driving down the hill and watching everyone ride UP the hill starting out! :(
But I did manage to make it out for 32 miles this afternoon, so thats good I guess. But yeah we ate our entries... sigh....

Wow, that really sucks about your car!!! Hope it was under warranty and there are no other problems with it!
Thank goodness for bicycles!:rolleyes:
