Fall Five Stage Three – Rob’s Results

October 31, 2012

in Humor, Rides

A brief sign language description of my performance in Stage 3 of the Ride Studio Cafe’s Fall Five. “I barfed in my car watching Rob ride this stage; it was like taking an arrow through the throat. Stop, just stop. He should quit while he’s behind. Take up juggling, or fight club, instead.”
Apologies to Lydia Callis.

Here’s my accounting of my “race” results on Stage Three of the Ride Studio Cafe’s Fall Five.

ascending three hills
finish line observes my lope
no breath to argue

Taking a moment to reflect on the wall.

I was following the yellow line. That’s the problem.

I feel like the Minute Man has turned his back on me. Forsaken by the Lexingtonian saint. Why? Why?

Fall Five dope doping tip #27: Doing a lot of dishes is the ideal pre-race warm-up. If you don’t have enough dishes, I have some I’ll share.

Thinking about riding. Not during the daylight hours, though.
