For a few months, Jude and I discussed starting a cycling team. We even threw a few names around. The Pedal Pushers. Pyscho Cyclers. Then one day, while we waited in line at the drive-thru for Dairy Queen, I scanned a promotional sign the employees had tacked on a fence for the latest burger. In small letters off to the side were the words: “Cheese Additional.”
“That’s it,” I told my husband. “Team Cheese Additional.”
“What?” His eyebrows shot up. “Why?”
“Because if you want the cheese, you gotta work for it,” I told him. Just like that, a dream was born, and a goal was set. We would begin training, both in the gym and on the road, for the local race from Zapata to Laredo, held annually in June.
Today was an exciting day for our little team. We put down the 50% deposit so Pactimo could begin designing our jerseys. The picture at the top of my blog is actually from our team logo and will be proudly showcased on the front of our jerseys.
Even though our team is only three members strong, we rely on each other for support and training advice. And, as we train more, others will see we are serious, and maybe, just maybe, Team Additional will grow. I. Am. Stoked!
