‘Cross racing and picking out pumpkins
Good racing today down in Broomfield. I raced with the Open Men and got a thorough beating. I felt pretty good, nothing special, but I was riding with people the whole time, so it was definitely good training. The course was tough- not many places to recover and plenty of running. Not often that you get to race on grass out west, so that was a nice change.
On the non-bike related side of things, Dusty and I made a trip to the pumpkin patch yesterday and ended up with about 9 pumpkins (he had trouble making up his mind). I picked out a kind of flat-looking red pumpkin and a few pie pumpkins- I figure I should try to make a pumpkin pie at least once with fresh pumpkin (not out of a can). I think we might have ended up with a tiny goat too if Dusty had his way. I’ll admit, it was pretty cute.
