I've been up at school this past week in order to work graduation in order to see the seniors and hang out. Hopefully get to enjoy some nice weather and ride a bit too.
I did all of that, possibly too much of all of that.
After watching the seniors graduate on sunday, I was off to hartford to race the downtown crit. It royally sucked. Maybe my saddle was a hair too low, I'm not sure what it was but I couldn't keep up. Then again, it could have been the unrelenting rain that led to total sketchiness from everyone and everything.
I couldn't close gaps since I didn't feel safe enough to be on anyone's wheel. I got pulled from the course.
Monday, I was heading home from dropping/picking up friends from the airport and my car's hood started smoking. I managed to drive it to town without the engine overheating and then let it cool down (managed to get a quick lunch with a friend during this time) and then drove it back to my place. It was smoking a bunch and the engine was overheating so I had to stop it and push it into a driveway. Crazy.
Today in the afternoon, I managed to get a tow truck to come and pick up the car. I have to call the garage today to make sure that everything's good and figure out how much it's going to cost. Ugh...
In any event, I got a ride to the tuesday nighter today and the loathing was rife in me after the dismal hartford crit.
I had a blast at the tuesday nighter and chased down a ton of breaks since we had a someone in a break.
All in all, a good day. Tomorrow will probably suck when I figure out how much the car repair is going to cost. Ugh...
