3 Marcs, 2 Chrises, 1 Diane.

"Whose motorcycle is this?"
"It's a chopper, baby."
Whose chopper is this?
"It's Zed's."
Who's Zed?
"Zed's dead, baby. Zed's dead"

love hate relationship...

This is my lime tree:

these are two perfect limes that it produced:
This is the high life:
put them together and hopefully it helps to ease the pain of a really bad race.
and while it may appear that Monkey and I coordinated our green shirts, we didn't.
the same could be said for our poor rides.
We could Monday morning quarterback this thing to death, but reality is that we just didn't have it today.
That's bike racing...

meanwhile my sister in law was getting fresh with Lord Stanley's cup:
and my brother was, well drinking from the cup so to speak:
And my nephew was also happy to drink from the cup, (although he drank gingerale)
May you all drink from the cup this week...

Monk and I will do better next time...

best to you all.

Self Conscious

You know, I'm starting to get a little self conscious. I mean, I get that I'm fatmarc, and I am what I am. When I joined C3, I clearly remember the director committing to me, "I'll never put you in a white kit." because frankly, I look like bibs the Michelin man in a white kit.

Last cross season, our Halloween kit was the storm troopers. Yes, it was a white kit, no it wasn't flattering, but damn it, it was storm trooper and I dug it. Yup, I am the fat stormtrooper.

Hell, I'm a good sport, I even bought the team's one off white kits for the summer (see header)...

Thursday night on the blue cup ride, my bike just didn't feel right, something was off. Friday morning, as Diane and I flew through the dirt sidewalk that middlerun has become, I broke my saddle. The rail gave out and bent beyond repair. It looked like the seat had been through a tornado...

For those scoring at home, that's my second saddle destroyed this year. This second one was only 3 months old. I really am the lead ass of the group. Taking Fatmarc to new extremes. Holy crap. Maybe it's was just bad titanium, yeah that's it, bad titanium....

Photo Blog now:
clear uniform violation- I can expect a fine from the director at the end of the month.

Monkey sporting the team's one off white summer kit.
We woke up to find all these people in our driveway Saturday morning, so we went for a ride. It was fun.

We made Jake run alongside of us the entire loop this morning.

Who is that handsome Devil? No, not Ted Logic! No. not Dennis Bike, or Jake, DLowe or even K-man. Come on it's me, Fatmarc, I'm the damn seat destroying handsome devil.

Happy 4th.
