BEFORE THE RACE
AFTER THE RACE
I don't mean the results of the weekend. In fact, I don't even know my results. We didn't wait around for them after the race because we had a 12 hour drive home from Ohio to contend with. The super human status refers to the entire adventure. A 12 hour drive each way to Ohio in one weekend. Oh yea... and a race. Check out the videos of before and after the race. You can actually hear the whipping wind in the "after" video... yikes.
Big shout out to mom for keeping me company, keeping me awake, driving when I needed a nap and for the overall laughter and fun. Suffice it to say, every state has a story and this was no different. The story of Ohio is about the tornados, the rain, the lightning and thunder and 40 mph cross winds across the very flat corn fields. White caps on the lake, afraid to take my hands off the handlebars to drink because of the wind and a cross country run through mud on the aqueduct.
On the way home we stopped at Schlep's Diner (yes, you can't make this stuff up) and the lights were out. They were still cooking and we were starving so we stayed. But when mom went to use the ladies room, Schlep himself followed her in with a candle. She thought he might stay and hold it too but he just wanted to make sure she was ok.
Super human, hysterical, whirlwind adventure.... all to raise much needed funds for ovarian cancer research.
