getting there, bike is really starting to improve (finally)

ended up in a passing battle with a 30year old, we must have passed each other 8-10 times
What would you do differently?:

my tri bike is on the way, i could have used a 10 cog cassett on the back, just couldn't find the right gear for the false flat

good to go

What would you do differently?:

not too much, pretty decent run
