well, i thought it is nice to send lee something that has a special meaning to me. to buy him something wouldnt be very effective, if you know what i mean
i try to find as much time as possible to check out the forum, but right now i only have 8minutes, so i try to tell the story quickly:
i won this gold-medal in 2004, at the austrian track championships (points race). it was my first ever national title, and before this race nobody knew me. i suffered like a pig the whole race through, and was equal in points with the austrian road race champion until the last sprint. it was the hradest race i had the whole year. i didnt think i could win it, because most of the other guys raced against me and helped the other one. i got 2nd in the last sprint, about 2cm in front of him. it was a photo finish and took about 5 minutes to tell who has won it.......i won the race by 1 little point
i was so unbelievable happy, because it was the first race i have won, and nobody thought i could win it. this medal always reminded me that if you really want something, you can get it. you just have to try as hard as you can.
very nice to open a thread lee! i hope the medal brings you luck
sorry for grammaticla mistakes, but i cannot read through the text. ...gotta go now
ps: hear you in 2 days
