Now - I have never been a competitive girl when it comes to sports. I was always the "GREAT JOB passing me on that hill! WOO HOO!" girl. Really. No cynicism. My skills on the bike are fair to middling at best and I know it. But then...I found STRAVA. I started uploading my rides (see my past blog post to note that I once went 6 months before I checked my Garmin) and all of a sudden started getting little medals. And a little trophy for 7th place. I blogged about that. And I was SO proud. What you didn't know dear readers is that I also achieved one QOM status. University to PCH. Which is basically my house to Bike Religion. Probably late for a group ride hauling ass. When awarded this QOM I wasn't acutally sure I had earned it. Maybe I had DRIVEN my bike to the shop and forgot to turn off my garmin? But no...there I was. I was 1st and 3rd no less.
I kept it a secret. Besides, no one follows me on STRAVA so it was my own private joy. Until tonight: Uh oh! Rachel Kerber just stole your QOM!
You just lost your QOM on University to PCH to Rachel Kerber by 2 minutes 19 seconds.
Now get out there, have fun and be safe.
-Your friends at Strava
She beat me. By about 10%. That B**** is going down. Stay tuned.
