being a pro cat-4 rules

it is pretty sweet to have an agent that gives me clothes and promotes me. who needs to actually perform when you get publicity for doing nothing?

it isn't every day you show up at work and realize you got initiated to the Friday Hero Club! (scroll down on the link)

[just for a point of clarification, that picture of me in the alley cat was with jenny who rides with montano velo, not michiko. (although some guys would like to think so, all asian chicks are not the same).]

well, back to me being a friday hero, do i get a free t-shirt or a hat or something that says "friday hero"? swobo, i would be very, very happy to pin a patch with your name to my jersey-- just like i sometimes pin geritol and aarp to my sleeves. but if you actually had a real patch, as opposed to me having to use an old t-shirt and sharpie to write your name, that would be totally rad. and, ya know, michiko and i are accepting sponsors. although, it is a really long list...but if you throw in custom titanium frames for us, hell, i'd tatoo swobo in a dirty spot.

but, back to realistic requests: a patch. well, i understand if you don't want to give me a patch for my jersey. my quads have shrunk since the summer days of 62cm. this thursday, they are holding course at 58.75cm. but i am confident they will grow again this spring.

as for other news (but what could top being a friday hero?), be excited cause i am heading to ADT this weekend with karla, hanan, and alicia! then sunday we will go watch michael win me a disc wheel. (i charge a high price for publicity.) but if that is too much to ask for, some chips from the gas station will do.

anyway, thanks for making me a friday hero. i am going to write that in my christmas card. right after i write about being a juror on murder trial. (it is always nice to end xmas cards on an upper.)

Hey Beth, great description of your 1st Alley Cat. The Donut King lured me into a near death experience at the Oakland Scrape last year. We finished 6th/7th in a strong field, but I think that will be our last.

Welcome to Friday Hero(ine)stardom. Now the money, movie offers, unwanted attention from the opposite sex begin in earnest. Are you really ready? It's like a keirin finish- your stomach gets all knotted, you sweat in places you didn't know you had sweat glands... it's kind of fun.

Thighs holding at 64cm today. We'll see what happens when I get back in the gym full time.
