2nd TT in Tulsa-May 13, 2010

Well, this race started off a little scary because we went to unload my bike and found out I had a flat rear tube! We had never had to change a tube before so I was afraid I wouldn't be able to race. My parents called our friend Craig at Al's Bicycles and he helped them over the phone! Yea...I got to race! Thanks Craig oh, and thanks to my mom and dad!

The first time I competed in this race it was only a 5K but this month they increased it to a 10K. I wasn't worried because I had been putting in lots of good training rides and working with my coach, Rob Green. He even made sure my mom knew exactly what I needed to eat up to race time! I think it helped because I was able to shave time off and come in 1st again! I was 7:59 faster than my closest competitor. I was very happy! I know I still have work to do but I know I am getting stronger and faster! So, I finished the race in 20:53...10:02 on the first 5K and 10:51 the second 5K. I yelled at myself on the second lap because I could tell I was going slower and it made me mad. I kept yelling "Go faster Luke!!!" I think it helped. I averged 17.85 mph. Anyway, I was still happy that I did my best and won the race! Now, back to OKC for my next TT on Saturday!
