Cross racing!

I raced Cyclocross fot the first time ever yesterday. Man was it fun. I love road and love MTB, so it makes sense that I love CX. It's super intense though. Race duration was just 45 min, but my average heart rate was 181bpm for the period! The course had a stari climb section that I feared at the warm up, but I ended up passing a lot of people pretty much every lap on it. I guess running those stairs at Teachers College all those winters paid off.
It was also my first race in the Team Tortuga kit. I stared dead last and finished, well, not dead last so I hope I didthe team well.
