It is finally online at Cyclocross Magazine. You can read it HERE!
After racing in yet another World Cup (in Zolder, Belgium) yesterday, i was a little tired today and did very little writing. By tomorrow i should have my race report from this last race submitted to Cyclocross Magazine.
I did, however, take time today to thoroughly relax with lots of couch play and left the house briefly to run some errands and buy myself a holiday gift or seven.
First stop was to my favorite cheap supermarket called Aldi. They sell rotating staple items like pasta, tomato sauce, coffee, wine, bras, bike trainers, wedding dresses, and boxed wine.
Next was to my favorite store in all of Belgium. It is a thrift store called Spit. I go there for set items like pocketable backpacks that i use for shopping when on the bike, fun winter hats, funky tees, outdated bike jerseys, and exotic dishware. I got lucky with three hats and two backpacks, each 80 cents but jonas scored more than I. He found a stylish chocolate pudding-colored short sleeve button-down that'll go perfect with his Levis. His other winner was a pale blue insulated vest - both 4€. And lastly I found him a scrunchable backpack he can use to carry his meals into work when takes the scooter.
As Jonas waited on the checkout line, I ran over to their book section. I never checked it out before since i assumed they were all in dutch. But to my surprise, there was a whole English section. By the time i settled on some books, peeled my eyes away from the rest, and ran over to checkout, Jonas was already checked out. Since the line was too long to wait again, the moment was gone. I will have to read my remaining two books real slowly to drag them out until I go back to Spit again.
Thanks for reading and hope your holiday season is going well!
