We are now back in the good ole' USA leaving behind the awful weather of the UK and arriving to sunny skies and 85 degrees! Sarah was singled out by the nice folks at US Customs and Borders Control and sweated for a few minutes while they checked her documents.....they let her in :-)
Yes the weather in the UK is generally as bad as people say it is and it was a good job that I had taken some armwarmers and a windvest back with me....I bet I looked great running along with a running t-shirt and cycling armwarmers! Anyway the one good day of weather we did have was fortunately the day of Ben and Sarah's wedding and that topped off a great final weekend that saw all of the old crew (with the exception of Chris...who probably decided that leaving the heat of the Middle East for the grey of the UK wasn't a good idea) back together again for one very long night of typical English revelry (Read: plenty of drinking, poor dancing and even worse singing).
Now I have to download all the photos so that they can be put up on various blogs and facebook pages! Hopefully I will get that all sorted this week at some point.....besides this weekend is busy, busy, busy! More details to follow!
- 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
