I like this quote, and to be able to race like this AND win is a sign of true greatness.

A lot of people run a race to see who is fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more. Nobody is going to win a 5,000 meter race after running an easy 2 miles. Not with me. If I lose forcing the pace all the way, well, at least I can live with myself.

Happy Christmas! or whatever else you celebrate.

December Already?

Well, I have a pet peeve, walkers and joggers on the BGT and Sammamish River trail wearing dark clothing in foggy conditions. Impossible to see!
Well, I did EL Tour de Tucson, stayed with Franz and had a blast. I didn't make the split at the 2nd wash (sabino creek) so just cruised in with Bruce from Excel and about 60 others. Hanging out with Dan Byrne, Franz and the HSP crew was great too.
The Thanksgiving Day Ride was a huge success, we raised $1,400 on the day, so Northwest Harvest will benefit to the tune of about $3,200 when all matching is said and done. Hats off to the Seattle cycling community, we need to get some more publicity next year!

Other news, Ed Farrar was moved to Harborview for therapy this week, we wish him well and if
you get a chance, drop by and say hello.

That's it for now, except I hear Two Wheels is working on two tires for Christmas! (spare tires that is)
