just a wee post before i konk out. we had us a lovely time in balmy Buellton and SB this weekend. i feel so inspired and happy to be on this team. this time last year i was telling linda every other minute, "i'm not racing this year. that's it. i don't want to do it." she started writing a tiny "NR" (Not Racing) in red ink on the calendar every time i said it. between the months of January, Feb and March the calendar was littered with those little red buggers. but this year, crikey, two races and it's only february! what has happened. well OV and all his motivational chit-chat and fun vids, and team-tactic talk and just the way he is as a rider is so damn encouraging that ,well, it's catching. And our queen bee Ms. VB has such a way of keeping the mood upbeat and silly and yet she gets down to business when business needs getting down to. And teammates! what a new concept. i've been bottom feeding for so long in races that it's so nice to have a friendly little school of fishies to go swimming and hunting with. and i will try my darndest to give up my solo scavenger ways and be a team player.

so anyhow today. we went out to Ellens had us some pancakes then rode a little. then drank us some wine and then did Solvang. more wine for Linda, five hours of driving for me and here we are with the babies. now, i ask you. does anyone know where you can get a good Kobe burger in Berkeley? damn you VB.
