BALLS 2012

Awesome as always!

No pictures, the sideways rain and 35 degree temperatures were not conducive to carrying a camera.

Skipped today's portion due to slight knee pain (not sure if it's the "fat" q factor or that the cleat was misaligned on my right shoe...).  Not worried about it going forward because I did pull the plug so preemptively early.  I've got a ton of stuff coming up fast and getting a bit of extra rest certainly won't hurt either.

Everyone involved with the ride was great, things were well planned out, the riders all had great attitudes etc. etc..  I know this is the same weekend every year as Trans Iowa and the Decorah Time Trials but I highly recommend making the trip.

Hope you had a good weekend.  Congrats to the Trans Iowa finishers...  more of you finished % wise than finished the cat 1/2 road race here in MN (so maybe I should also be congratulating those of them who finished...  way to go Brandon on another win as well!).  I wish the weekend were 3 or 4 weeks long so I could have done both and the time trials.  I had fun keeping track of TI updates etc. and trying to predict what would happen next etc..  Some of it was more predictable than other bits, that's for sure!

  1. fwiw- zero knee pain today on my commute with flat pedals/normal q factor. I'm attributing the issues to the cleat, will adjust and/or wear different shoes for future long rides on that bike and others.
