After 5 days with the crew, I can confirm that this group formed under the proper name! It was such an honor to get to spend those days with them. We had a lot of fun, and I learned a lot in that time:

-What a GAP is!

GAP

-It rains a lot in the gaps.

-If Haley names her future children Wolfpen, Jack, Unicoi, and Skeenah….just humor her.

-They sure know how to make driveways steep in Georgia.

-Bungee cords fix everything.

-Wearing matching outfits never gets old.

-Masters swimming is fun. It is still scary, however, when Maria whistles at you and tells you to get out of the pool. Note: ignoring her and pretending you don’t notice does not help this situation. Totally worth it though when she makes you instantly faster!

-Masters swimming is also a bit ridiculous. Lots of strokes. Lots of everyone doing what they want. Lots of pool toys. I can see how it’s endearing.

-Riding with friends in the rain > Riding solo in the rain

-10ks are (still) hard.

-It’s not the 4th without fireworks. Even if they are from Walmart!

-Long rides with puppies and sag are The. Best.

All in all, I can’t wait for another opportunity to train with the Dynamo crew – I will be back!

  1. I know you travel a lot on weekends but where in the Baltimore area do you ride? I go to school at UMBC and although it’s not downtown it’s in a pretty sketchy area so riding outside can be tough

    1. Hey Shannon! From UMBC you can pop onto Frederick Rd pretty easily – if you head West you can easily loop into Columbia for some good rides, or if you head farther North and hit Liberty Road you can do quite a bit of riding out there to the west. Shoot me an email if you want any other suggestions/routes – but usually once you get further into the county the roads are great and it’s good hilly riding!
