Packing, moving, unpacking…and a little parenting, training and work mixed in. Although moving is stressful and very time consuming, it has been great to be living in town. I can go for a run with both kids in the Chariot right from my front door – saves me about 45 minutes of driving to and from. I have enjoyed road rides from the house, trail runs on Red Hill with a mile of pavement warm-up and mountain biking at Prince Creek from the driveway. Not to mention walking or riding my bike to the grocery store and not getting in the car for days at a time.I’ll miss a few things about the old house but there are so many great things about being in town that I’ll get past those things.
Before the move, I raced in the Mountain States Cup Blast the Mass race in Snowmass. I rode better than I thought and enjoyed pushing my limits with some fast and fun women. Although I was riding strong for me right now, I’m just not quite back to top race fitness yet. Despite holding onto third place for much of the race, I fell back to fifth in the last few miles. No complaints though as I felt strong and know I raced as well as I could three months after having Axel.
Now it’s time for more unpacking and hopefully some more races in the next month or so.
