Sunday Play Time

2008 Podium

This Sunday we are going up to the 24 hour course for the first time this season. Some of you are of course very familiar with the course while others of you have never been out there. I have confidence that everyone on this team can go out there on Sunday and ride a lap . I really hope that everyone comes as I think doing this will give us all a lot of confidence for the event. (Sabina you are so welcome to come and I highly encourage you. I think that you will have a great time, and your team would be very excited to see you. )

Meeting at clubhouse: 7:30am. I recommend bringing a bag with a change of clothes, so you are warm in the morning on the ride up, and then you can change into something comfortable and dry for the ride home. A backpack with a change of warm clothes, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Leaving approx. 8:00am

Trail head approx. 9am.

Home approx. 2pm.

It will be fun for sure!!!

Happy B’Day

Happy Birthday Lizzy!!!

This is one of my favorite pics from 2010

You are growing up into quite a fine young lady and I feel very fortunate to have you as part of this team. You have set some ambitious goals for this year and I am thrilled at the chance to try and help you reach them. Your birthday was yesterday, I posted this today, but hopefully we are together for years to come.

Happy Birthday!!!
