Annual Hodges Village Dam
August 2 2009
Participation this week was not as good as it has been through out the year (low twenties I am guessing). It was cloudy and about 75 degrees. The course was very unique. It reminded me of a steeple chase. A lot of dirt roads and deep puddles. Their was also a bridge that was floating in the water. As a person ran across it, it sank down and tipped. Reminded me of the moving platforms in super Mario brothers
I pretty much spent the majority of the race riding alone. I wouldn’t see any one till the last lap. I passed a couple of guys and was closing in on a third person. I was trying to pull a ninja stealth attack on the third person. My goal was to catch him off guard and make my pass before the quickly approaching finish line. But my ninja skills were lacking today. He noticed me 200 ft back and stayed away. I finished 7th
It felt good to take a dip in the pond after the race with Wheels. The clean up /swim after the race has because as important as the race itself. I am thinking about creating a blog that focuses post race swimming places. It is going to be called mike joos post race swimming places blog (my towel is better than yours).
Today I swam here...
