Hi its me Jared Samuelson
Awe man, they didn't talk about the race at all

Anyways it was extremely difficult. The beginning was weird, they had a police car to pace us out from downtown to the track at 14 MPH for 3 miles. Everyone was speeding to the front of the pack, so they get the advantage when the cop breaks off. So, the cop pulls off and signals us to start the race. Right when I put the pressure on the pedals, my body tensed up and everyone was passing me O.O I was trying my hardest but my body was lagging, then the first uphill came and it didn't feel to good.... BUT I didn't give up!, I kept my pace up though the pain, and eventually my body was like "Oh your racing" and I got unlimited power, started passing people up, I got my focus back, every uphill was a breeze, and the downhills were fast, my mind put everything together and I started owning the competition, oh passing the people I was meaning to pass put a smile on my face :) and I finished 4 minutes under the 2 hour mark, it felt so incredibly good :D well until they gave the trophy, that was hard to hold up, but it was so fun, I LOVE RACING!!!!!
