Let the pictures do the talking

The race report will have to come later.  I’m just too tired to sit down and type it out right now.  So, for now, we’ll just let the pictures tell the story.

My number for my first Category 4 race

The number for my first Category 4 race

Not sure why it wasn’t a 4** number.  This is definitely a number that will go in my collection. It represents my first Category 4 race.

My pinkie survived!

I made a special glove to keep my left pinkie finger attached to my ring finger.  It worked perfectly.  The road was rough and when I was warming up before the race I didn’t use the glove.  The vibrations hurt.  With the glove, I didn’t feel a bit of pain!

My first "pay check" from racing.

My first "paycheck" from racing.

I finished in the money and got a $20 check.  Let’s see… registration: $25 + online registration fee: $1.98 – race winnings = $6.98.  Hmmmm, I guess I would have to win in order to cover the expense of the race.  Of course, I say that tongue in cheek.  I’m not racing for the money.
