I’m down in Tulsa racing the next couple days. Kind of behind today, so have to make this short. I love the town of Tulsa. It’s kind of a unpolished jewel of a city. The downtown is where they hold the 3 Tulsa Tough events. It is a collection of old buildings and new people.
Anyway, I had a chance to stop by and check out the new Oklahoma ranch of my friend Rod Lake on the way here. I only stopped for enough time for him to give me a quick tour, but the place is amazing. I didn’t take enough pictures, but you never would have thought you were in the state of Oklahoma. The whole area was riddled with running water. A river on one side, a couple streams and a couple more ponds, that really were lakes. Full grown trees on one side and pastures on the other. It was amazing. I’m, for sure, going to make it a point to come through with my MTB bike and hang some next time through.
I’m racing the Salty Cow. Today is calld a criterium, but is really a circuit race. It is a dumbbell shaped course with the started finish line at the top of a hill. It can be a hard race because of the terrain, but sometimes the wind isn’t too gentle either. Okay, I need to get going.
