ok so i am stoked. I really hope this does not get misconstued in any way, i am just excited. why you may ask? I am getting to it. my story starts on friday. so i picked up the most recent cycling utah after work on friday as i departed Racer's Cycling Service. i read a little here and a bit there. this month they named their cyclist of the year...kathy sherwin and bart gillespie took the honors again. Deservedly mind you. I am not completely sure how cycling utah arrives at their cyclist of the year, but i know that i got a ballot to vote for individuals. i did not think much of it. anyway, it was a lengthy article so i did not bother looking at the back page where the story continued. Kathy and Bart are fast and place in lots of "real" races; enough said.
then on sunday, i had a bit of time so i picked up the paper again. forgetting that it was a continuation, i read the back page. I about fell over when i got to the end of the second column. Well, I did not really almost fall over and i just broke out in a huge, unbelieving grin. I seriously was dumbfounded. I know to most people this does not mean anything, but i really view myself as "just another girl on a bike". I thought it was pretty cool. It really does not change anything though, I will always be just another girl on a bike.
To make things even better the Tour of Utah is returning next August. See page 5. Sweet!
