Precognition

I've done Great Glen enough that I really ought to have less enthusiasm for this event by now. Every year it goes the same way -- I spend a whole week getting hyped up, losing sleep, super excited -- and by 6pm during the race I'll be shoved in the hurtbox, praying for it to end.

This year I'm on a 4 man team, which only sounds easier. Longer breaks just means you have to hurt more when you're on the bike. With five other expert teams and a pro team out there, suffering, intensity and focus are gonna be the name of the game.

So why am I so excited?!

Tell me that at 2am when you crash and break your only light.

Backup light is charging as we speak, and I've already packed my backup appendages.

Tell Colin that...
after I pay off a bunch of toothless New Hampshire hillbillies to smash your backup light and appendages to pieces with ax handles.

Well done, you guys hammered some serious lap times out there.

How come no one mentions how smart you sound using "precognition?" Jeez, I had to look it up.
