First off, I found someone that obviously does not know me well to room with for Friday night. Yeah me!
Second, looks like there is a chance right now we could be starting in rain at close to freezing temps. Hot damn this ought to be interesting.
Third, my Dad found this old medal of mine. It probably is pre 2000, but I can't say for sure. I think I know the race, but extra cool points for the person that can help me identify where this came from.
I was raised in the "hood", self-taught to survive on scraps of old inner tubes and changing bike tires with my teeth. Life is a struggle for me not to be another statistic that so many become after being raised in a caucasion middle class family. I now am a husband, bike mechanic, land lord, stay at home dad, and wannabe mountain bike racer.
