The third horseman

Of all the yummy things Rachel makes, her pies have to be her crowning achievement. She's been perfecting her crust recipe for ten years and takes a leave-nothing-wanting approach to the fillings. They are divine.

And so last night I took it as a sure sign of the apocalypse that offers of pie were turned down by neighbors not once, but twice. Some drivel about "just hit my target weight" or whatever. This is not normal. If Leadville weren't on Saturday, I'd be very concerned.

Not wanting a third strike, we gave it to some friends that don't ride bikes.


  1. I would of eaten the pie, 2 hours before the start even.

    Take a memo please......

    'dieting' to lose weight in the few weeks before a race is counterproductive to the fueling a body needs.

    It sounds fun though.

  2. I would have driven to Suncrest on a minutes notice to pick up one of Rachel's pies.

  3. That's why I don't do Leadville.

  4. Thanks for not calling me out

  5. dude. if Sam ever turns you down again remember my comments about have zero discipline. for the love of all that is holy...bring them by my house. i'll gladly take them off your hands.

  6. I would have taken it in a NY minute. I dream of that blueberry pie!!!! : )
