Kill Kill Kill

Renaissance Festival. Oh Jeebus. Scary stuff. Battle axe throwing. Here's two in the heart for you. Don't mess with me.

Ok, so the funny hat kinda ruins it...

There are quite a lot of fun things to do at the RennFest. Throwing stars, hatchets, bow and arrow, he-man hammer thing, climbing wall, turkey legs, beer, mead, cleavage... It really is people-watching at its best. And worst. And you have to check out the jousting. Big horses, armor and lances. Freud would LOVE it...

Emma had a soccer game on Saturday morning. She enjoys it, I think. Run around and kick the kids that are near the ball. She's stil working on the finer points of 'rules' and 'strategy' and 'playing' soccer. She looks cute though. And she even looks like she's paying attention. Rare moment.

24hrs of Landahl is this weekend. We leave on Friday. This will be the final race of the season for me. We challenged the Athens boys to come out and race. If we beat them, we win the series. If they beat us, they win the series. It all comes down to this one race. Pretty exciting.

We were going to race Landahl and not tell the Athens boys to get points and try to win smart instead of riding bikes faster than them. We quickly realized that we wanted to ride to win and challenged them to make the trip so we could end this in MO.

We have a shot to beat them. It might not be likely, but it's possible. If we win, we will have truly earned it. If they beat us, they deserve to win the series and we went down swinging.

It'll be fun. Real-time results will be available from Granny Gear. Noon Saturday to noon Sunday.

Good luck this weekend buddy. I will be in B-more trying my hand at this thing called cyclocross racing. I see a DNF in my future.
