We raced in Dayton yesterday (results). Our quad (I’m on the far left) did ok, though it wasn’t our best performance. No one else was in our event, so we can only compare times to what we think we should have done or against other events’ times, and actually of the 11 quads racing yesterday, only one beat us. At one point someone in our men’s quad made a comment that they should finish faster than us, and when the results came back we beat them by almost thirty seconds, 8:13 vs 8:41! 🙂
Our eight (I’m on the far right) got third. We had a couple of less experienced people this year so just finishing without disaster was good for some folks. The record high temperature and bright sun left me burnt and exhausted. Based on fluid intake and lack of bathroom trips, I think I sweated at least 80 ounces. Sweat was just dripping off of us and sitting in the sun on the reflective water waiting for the event to start wasn’t helping. I had a lot of sleep last night but I am not all there yet today.
David and I picked fresh tomatoes, basil, and thyme in the yard by flashlight last night and he made a fabulous marinara sauce. I was falling asleep in my pasta but it sure was yummy!
