I can't ride wednessday, so I decided to ride today instead of resting. I parked at Hains Point at about 830 and started changing when I realized I forgot clean socks for the second time in a row and would have to wear the pair I did the 7am and the 10am on Saturday, and 4 hours that included both sides of Mt Weather on Sunday. What's one more day?
So, I head out at 9 and do 3 hours. When I got back, the noon ride was starting, so I hopped in. I meant to cut out early to take a shower before class when Ken Young and some other DC Velo guys showed up about half way through. The speed picked up and I did 3 more laps. It was fun, a DC Velo guy would go, I would chase, another would go when I caught the first one, and so on until in the end I would sprint with Ken who beat me 2 out of 3 times. Great ending to a long day of training, but needless to say I had to go straight to class.
So, I am sitting in class and I keep smelling this awful smell. I looked around irratated wondering who the culprit was and eventually decided who it was. At the break, I sat farther away from him - but to my amazement I could still smell him! In my next class, I could still smell it and the realized, IT WAS ME! I guess wearing thoose socks for over 230 miles in three days did not help my hygene. I wonder if people in my classes could smell and knew it was me. God I hope not.
