Jumble... I.... Unnnnhhhhh

I don't know what to do. I have seventeen different plans for tomorrow. If I decide to go to the River's Edge Mountain Bike Marathon I can either:

Drive out there, do my best, and if I make the podium sit I can sit there patiently and talk to whoever I might know for three hours till the awards. I should be home by 6:00pm

Drive out there, suck, miss the podium, and be home by 3:30pm.

Ride my MOOTS out there.... yeah, I'm not doing that on a SS mountain bike with a loaded messenger bag.


Ride downtown, hop on the
CATS route 5, ride the 4-5 miles from the Little Rock Road drop off, race, win (of course), drink beer, beg for a ride home, fail, and call The Pie for an extraction.

I was going to pick one of those plans until Big Worm hit me with a new idea around 3:30pm yesterday. He suggested we head down to Greenville, SC on Sunday, find a trail to ride, and then watch the US Pro Road Race Championships. I contacted my peep in Greenville, and he's making it sound like some sort of good time....

So, race and do something that's a lot like everything I already do or chase down a new adventure, a once in a lifetime opportunity? I know watching road racing can be a bit like watching paint dry (sometimes), but I kinda know what four laps at the White Water Center feels like too. What to do, what to do... Spend $65 to ride 50 miles on my local trail or spend the day in Greenville riding five miles of singletrack and screaming "ALLEZ!!! ALLEZ!!!" at George Hincappie the rest of the day.

Maybe I could spend the weekend sleeping. I'd like that too. I guess I could start building jumps in my backyard for my new Nummers.

Should I get black, or white, or raw? What would make you the most jealous... Thad?

just make sure you drink enough to get green!

race saturday, huck everything you can as practice for the nummers, which will undoubtedly leave you injured and bleeding. go home for some family time. go watch the epo train sunday, drink beer, throw empty cans at the racers and have the best of both worlds.

Seeing you enjoy the 26" wheel would make me giddy green. Glad Peter hasn't discovered Green, cuz then it's be toooniner green and that would be stupid.

Silver is fast. I like silver. Don't pick silver.
