Went out too hard too fast and started to panic and freak myself out. Had to slow myself down
What would you do differently?:

I felt pretty good about the bike. There were times I could have pushed myself harder but overall, I had a good cycle.
There was another woman close to my pace and she and I would pass each other back and forth joking about who was next to pass. It made for an entertaining and enjoyable ride.

Event comments:

This was my first sprint and I loved every minute! There were some weather delays to start but once we got going it was great fun! The staff were friendly, the volunteers were awesome and the course is so scenic you forget you want to keel over.
The only criticism that I have is that I missed the awards ceremony because I was showing a friend around Clear Lake who had never been there and also didn't know I was third in my age category. Any emails I send asking if I could pick up the award were ignored and I never received it which is really disappointing especially considering I placed on my first ever sprint.

Riding Zen means nothing more than being keenly aware of your surroundings and in control of your emotional state at all times. It also means riding safe and riding smart.

I was passing others who were saying, "Good job, 587" (that was my race number). People were cheering me on. These were the nicest people I have ever been around!

Known for its brutal cadences, nasty sprints and 12-minute hills, the spin class seems to be the perfect substitute for a raunchy ride outside. But is it?
