We have now returned from our southwest adventures...
The prof and Jenna (and the muffins) got to park their RV at the sweetest camping spot in all of Durango--Moira and Ted's aka the Compton Compound. Incorporating the Prof and Jenna into the Durango crew was like mixing macaroni and cheese, or chocolate and peanut butter...Nothing short of a brilliant combo...Add in some quality time with a million other amazing locals and visiting 801-ers??? It really did just about blow the happy center in my brain (copyright Erin).
The hubs finished 48th in the cat 4 road race (out of 130!) and 8th in the crit. Rock star. I was super proud of him. And he had a fun time.
I finished 7th in the road race (I had a great ride!), 2nd in the crit, and 6th in the time trial. That put me in 3rd place for the omnium behind Kristin McGrath and Jeannie Longo. Durango Herald write-ups here and here.
Stoked would be an understatement. The prof was a total hero in the crit working her butt off to ensure the break I was in stayed away. She also let me borrow her disc wheel for the time trial so I could try to improve my omnium spot. She was a superchamp the entire weekend both on and off the bike. I feel really lucky to have her as both a teammate and now friend!
And now to the task of putting the pieces back together upon returning from a 10 day trip. Thank god for J9 who not only ensured our return to an alive cat, and thriving plants, but actually left us furniture! Being pathetic has its privileges I suppose.
