doin' the right thing

Wow! What an interesting turn of events. So, remember that team that was doing some gorilla recruiting in order to win the club challenge? Well, they didn't win (we did, they got second). However, many of the team members were opposed to what had happened. The best woman on the team quit yesterday, embarassed to race in her team kit today at San Rafael. And my friend decided not to race today either.

Well, it turns out that the team captain knew nothing about what had happened. One woman on the team (who doesn't even really race) decided single-handedly that the team could win the challenge if everyone on the team got one new racer to sign up.

So, this team withdrew from the competition and didn't accept their 2nd place winnings. I'd say that's the honorable thing to do, wouldn't you?

thanks for the ride invite yesterday--next time!

and sorry if i seemed to be ignoring you at first--i didn't recognize you until the ride invite--all the comments about ice cream and armwarmers and such i thought were just coming from some random crazy woman--it's hard to recognize someone in real clothes that i really only see in race gear.....

No worries. I assumed you didn't recognize me in my clothes!

Funny how we feel like we almost know folks from their blogs, isn't it?

How tall are you? I realized yesterday that I always assumed you were short but you're not.
