I don’t know what it is about being on a team that is so damn enticing. Maybe it’s an instant sense of belonging? All of the sudden you have a title, teammates, inside jokes.. Sarcastic or not it’s a hell of a lot of fun. The latest team we find ourselves on is the #americankreamteam (slogan pending) although I am pushing for “We’re the kream of the crop and we rise to the top”.
Our team was founded one fateful balmy Denver afternoon as we pedaled from brewery to brewery hitting 5 in all. As far as I can tell our team is some sort of costume/climbing/beer nerding/thrift shopping team. Members include Sara, Matt, Adam, Robyn and myself. We met Matt and Adam climbing in Clear Creek one afternoon and hit it off right a way.
Our next trip? Each of us will purchase 3 items to outfit another team member from a thrift store: pant, shirt and accessory. Then we will have a thrift store outfit climbing weekend at shelf. After that? A trip to the Everglades. Then Idaho. Gonna be busy.
