John and Kristen blew away the tandem record for
Mt Washington at Newton's Revenge. They roared up in a time of
1:06:32, taking almost 6 minutes off the long-standing record,
held by two guys!
I (Pamela) wasn't around to take pictures, because
I decided the week before that I would do the race. These are
courtesy of a 545 velo racer.
Dominique is showing off how light the new Guru
Everyone else was in and changed by the time I
arrived, but I did arrive! I am so happy to have this almost done.
The most pain, I've ever expreienced - but where's
my medal - dammit
I was cramping so bad for the last two miles.
Then when I got off the bike I could not move. My glutes were
screaming. It was agony to stand and changing clothes was awful.
Kristen had to spot me!
OK, it was worth the pain! I made the podium (ok,
just in my age group, but that's still pretty cool!) I carried
that medal around for weeks!
