Had a fun 2 days this past weekend split between a ski day at Kirkwood and a local mountain bike race on Sunday (ahh the 2-sport benefits of living in the NorCal foothills).
The XC race was one of the first 'serious' races of the season here in NorCal and is a good barometer of everyone's fitness leading into the more highly contested Spring races that will be starting in about 2 months.
But lots of things are out of your hands at races and you can only control so much. Sunday's race was one of those examples for me. I wrote up a race report for my new little blog I very recently started up and the report is here: www.onegeartwoplanks.com
