Sometimes life blows. Like when three or so weeks of work gets destroyed and $100,000 worth of elevator electrical panels blow up because a pro-fit (tm) fitting decides, after having hot water roll through it for 6 weeks, decides to blow up. If my labor foreman were not such an unbelievable stud, we would have had SeaWorld (tm) in the courtyard of the hotel yesterday. As it was, we get to continue to work on the stuff moving forward, while moving backward like bastards to rip out all the wet and demo'd stuff, then get all that stuff put back together so the hotel can open on February 12. THAT'S SO SUPER!!!
16 people showed up for the ride I was supposed to host out in Marshall today, which is mint. It's great that so many people on the team are into it. There are those who'll say "yeah, but there's 9000 people on NCVC so what's 16?" The deal is that there really aren't that many people who are that actively involved, and getting so many people to go an hour plus away to go do a brutally hard ride in balls cold weather is a good thing. Of course the lame part was that I had to oversee the rain forest today, so couldn't be there. From what I heard it was so cold out there that maybe I got off easy.
The MABRA season for all intents and purposes is over sometime in June. Wouldn't it be great if there was some awesome group of events that got scored as a series and gave people something to really get psyched up for from mid July through early August? I think that would be really fun. It's a shame to do all of the training that we're all now starting to do only to start racing at Jeff Cup in late March and be done at Reston a little more than two months later. What's the point of having your off season training be longer than your racing season? I think some innovative group of people should really make this happen, incorporating some existing events and also some new stuff.
Wouldn't that be great? Don't you think it would be awesome?
It's going to be super nuts cold tomorrow but I'm going to be a hard guy. Cuz that's how I rolls.
