I seem to have lost 30 watts. The last time I saw them was in 2009. They were awesome. We had some good times. I thought I found them a few times, but it wasn't the same 30 watts. I think it was more like 15. I've been looking all over for them. Mostly I look in Cazenovia. Sometimes I look around Highland Forest, and sometimes I look in my basement around my trainer. I've become so desperate that I've even gone running in hopes of finding them. I figure these types of things tend to get lost within a couple of miles of the house, so I thought I'd stand a better chance of seeing them on foot. Then again maybe you're more likely to have an accident within a couple miles of the house. I get those things confused.
In any event, I stopped working with a coach a couple of years ago. Maybe the watts were part of the training program and when I stopped paying he transferred them to a paying client. Maybe if I read the fine print in his contract I'll find them.
I've been traveling a lot for work. I wonder if they fell out of the car at a rest stop in Massachusetts. I also stay at a lot of hotels. They tend to have restaurants like Applebees connected to their parking lots. Sometimes I order a couple off the tall beers while I'm there to offset the fact that I'm in a Crapplebees. Maybe I left them on the bar as a tip one night.
I did a lot of mountain biking last season. I took a pretty good tumble during the Highland Hex. Maybe they fell out of my jersey pocket. I'm pretty sure I lost them before the Hex though.
I also wonder if Haight stole them. He did move about 10 minutes ride from my house. He's also riding pretty fast this year. I know my dog Ray would eat him if he broke into the house, but maybe he took them from my garage. Sometimes I leave them on my handlebars after a long ride.
I gotta get those watts back . . .
I also lost a glove. It was a Sugoi. Something tells me I'll find or replace that first. I'm not religious, but isn't there a saint that brings back lost stuff? Meh, I guess I'll just keep riding in hopes that I find those watts. If you see Haight sporting my watts in the wide open though, call the cops!
