Have you ever had one of those days where you're so amazingly efficient that you even surprise yourself? Yeah, you know. Well, I had one of those days today and my adrenaline is just pumping. Funny, it didn't start out that way. But as the morning progressed I checked one thing after another off my to-do list: inbox cleaning, house cleaning, laundry, cooking, clinic updates, bike fits scheduled, paperwork processed, a longer than usual walk with the dog, and work on the upcoming Sea Otter Classic Women's Outreach Activities.
For those of you who don't know, I've worked with Sea Otter Classic for the past two years on their women's outreach activities. Sea Otter Classic is a HUGE annual event in Monterey and (like many things in the bike industry) seems to attract a mostly-male audience. So my job is simple: develop activities (rides, clinics, seminars, social events) to draw more women to Sea Otter. You see, Sea Otter has all the necessary ingredients to be a favorite women's event: shopping, bikes, food, wine, entertainment, FUN! So we're trying to reach out to the fairer gender to let them know that Sea Otter is for them, too!
If you're interested in joining the fun, you'll find the full schedule of women's events here:
I had originally thought I'd get out and ride mid-day (my favorite time) in the warm sunshine and before the winds picked up. But all of a sudden the afternoon was almost over so I headed out for a late-afternoon spin. Apparently I wasn't the only one because I had lots of rabbits to test out my legs (although I didn't see a single rider I knew in almost 3 hours). My legs felt good. Really good.
To the guy with the amazing legs on the Pinarello on Foothill Expressway who yelled out "will you marry me?" as I passed you, my response is "I'm single. Next time pedal harder."
What's the most interesting thing someone has said to you while you're riding your bike?

Too bad this blog doesn't have smell-o-vision!
