This year I talked to my friend and racing buddy Chris into riding with me so that I did not go crazy. When Chris arrived I had already done 7 laps and was groggy. Chris lifted my spirits and paced me back into my fast pace. Chris finally became sick and I set out on my final lap. 34-degree temperatures, sleet, and rain punished me. I walked the last half of the lap and barely made it back to my car. I put everything into my trunk and went back to my apartment. Unfortunately my landlord had evicted me and all my belongings were in the parking lot.
