Racing Season 2, Race #1: Jeff Cup - A Road Race


Jeff Cup was a thirty mile road race held in the beautiful countryside of Charlottesville, Virginia.

My teammate, Tina, and I got to the race site early, registered, talked to our other teammates, and warmed up a bit.

There were twenty-three other women in my field, and I recognized quite a few of the women from previous races. We exchanged pleasantries, and finally it was time for us to start racing.

My people, I started off strong and felt good, but eventually, that hilly course completely wore me out. However, I was determined to finish, and I did.

Here are a few of my takeaways from this race:
  1. I need to work on cadence.
  2. I need to ride hills over and over again.
  3. I will master the art of riding hills at race pace.
My people, I am looking forward to seeing how my second race season unfolds.

I hope that you did something today that totally got you out of your comfort zone and challenged you.

Happy Sunday!!
