My cough was really bad this morning. But I got a good night's sleep!

About two or three miles from the parking lot I realized I had left my TT wheels at home... oh well. The sky was not looking as clear as was forecast and then 60 minutes later when it started snowing I realized I had left my glasses at home. Shit.

I helped set up signage, thought about setting up the trainer, drank some super scientific sports drink and then took the race promoter for a drive down the course to check it out. Here is what it looked like.

Upon arriving back at the parking lot the snow was really starting to accumulate and I had to hit the head so off to the public restroom I went. When I got back the race had been cancelled.

It was for the best. Here is what one racer looked like after trying to ride around.

Nothing to do but drive back down the course and clean up all the signage. And eat a double chocolate muffin from Costco of course. Time to go home.

After getting back home my cough turned into sneezing and a runny nose. Nice. Race day just turned into rest day.
