RE: [RC] [RC] howard and racing - Howard Bramhall

Well, I'm glad I saved you from wasting your time to seek me out. I'd only disappoint you in person anyway. I always do.

Racing to the finish is quite rare in endurance but it does happen. I'd hate to see someone injured because of it but I really don't understand why anyone would put themselves in a position for that to occur in the first place. I wasn't at this ride so I have no idea what happened or the logistics. I have been to some crowded rides before (Biltmore) where this type of thing is just an accident waiting to happen because of the large crowd, loose dogs, and folks just not paying attention.

Let them race to the finish if they get the chance. I know I enjoy it immensely when I get to watch it. From behind that tree.

Howard (yea, I'm a big mouth fool, but I've never been run over by a horse at the finish line)

Howard, I've never met you and thought at one time I might want to, but now I think not! My father taught me at an early age
that it's better to keep your mouth shut and let people think
you are a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

I don't remember where that quote came from but it seems to
fit you perfectly.   Sorry if I miss quoted and didn't give the
author credit.  Thanks for your concern and thoughts about
riding in control.

Thanks! Cate Peloquin

I don't think you have to join a gym or buy frilly outfits to get some
fitness. A decent set of shoes and a 15 minute dismount here and there
will help.
