lola finishing strong over all

lola strong overall

lola and the alleycat

it is interesting
people may think that a messenger is done riding their bike when their workday is over
but that tends not to be the case
the bicycle continues in the messenger's life even after the workday is done

for some the bicycle carries them home from work
for others the bicycle carries them from bar to bar
while their are others who get on their bikes after work for pleasure and for pain

as some of these messengers work hard to be better on their bikes

in talking with Lola about the Destination Dublin Alleycat she used the "T" Word
that dreaded "T" Word
"training"
Lola said she had been training hard for this event
training? I thought
yes... training.

apparently the training is paying off
as Lola is currently holding the top seat for women competitors and is strong overall

riding bikes is fun
riding bikes hard is fun
pushing your personal limits is fun
getting better at something is fun
winning would be fun
going to Dublin to represent the Washington DC messenger community would be fun

Wednesday May 30th is an Individual Time Trial in Rock Creek Park
come out and race
your race entry fee aids in paying the travel costs of sending two cyclists to Dublin

yeah! Did Lola tell you that she has to train cuz she's worried I might beat her? I've done a great job at keeping the competition close between her and I. She is only 5 points ahead of my FatEx messenger self! I told her she'll probably win the free ticket but I'm not gonna let her get it easily--she's got to work!
And if you notice the overall points, Lola and I are right at the top, beating most of the boys! Girl Power!!

meredith...
I am certain that Lola is aware of the competition
she by no means thought that she was a shoe in for Dublin
no one is a shoe in for Dublin at this point
the race is too close to call!

and yes
you both are very strong overall!

GIRL POWER!
You Both Rock!
