What a weekend.....
1)For the first time in a while the weather cooperated and I managed to get a very solid weekend of cycling. Close to 8 hours was just what I needed to ramp up the cycling miles.
2)Close friend Chris Sellar raced his first Ironman in South Africa and did a great time of 10hrs 17mins for 9th place in Age Group.....fingers crossed for the Hawaii roll-down!
3)The 70.3M World Championships were on tv and so we could relive the race from this past November....and wish we were back in North Redington Beach!
4)Sarah and I ventured into DC to see the remnants of the National Cherry Blossom Festival and also managed to sneak up to the top of the Washington Monument....I would definitely recommend it if you can ever get a ticket (Fortunately the weather was cold and cloudy so all the tickets were not taken!)
and to top it off we decided to get a chinese takeaway for dinner on Sunday night...a great weekend!
- First cross race of the season at #AACX today....always a tough race when you are the race director as well but had a solid race for 4th in the Elite Masters. . . . . . #IFB #cyclocross #parvillacycles #vandessel #tifosioptics #pactimo #industrynine
- Got to ride the trails at Marine Corp Base Quantico yesterday at the Quantico Epic....50 miles of awesomeness despite the muddy trails. Gradually feeling like I have recovered from the #bestbikegameever . . . . . . #marathonmtb #parvillacycles #alchemybicycles #IFB #quanticoepic #cycling #mtbracing
- Perfect day out on the trails yesterday on the @alchemybicycles at #schaefferfarms . . . . . . #IFB #parvillacycles #MTB #xterratriathlon #mtbracing #marathonmtb
- Kind of a rough day at 6hrs at Woodstock. First 3.5 hrs were fine (even with a 10min stop for horses on the trail) and then stomach shut down. Probably related to stomach bug earlier in the week. Decided not to head out for another lap. Great trails though and a good race from Joe's Bike Shop as always. 📸: @dchammerette . . . . #6HAW #parvillacycles #mtbracing #mtbmarathon #IFB #patapsco #mtb
