So I have just a few minutes in between games and I thought I'd post a quick update.
This morning I dropped my daughter off for her games and then headed over to meet the cycle team for our nutrition clinic and our ride in the brutal 20+ mph winds. The winds were really bad, but lots of riders were willing to ride, so off we went.
When it started, I was in the first group. Luckily there were several guys in the group that I could tuck in behind, because it was BRUTAL. On the way out (heading straight into the north wind) we were going between 7 & maybe 11 mph. And that was pushing it. We had hoped to go farther, but after about an hour of stuggling in the wind, everyone decided to turn around and head back.
And that was the fun part. On one of the downhills, I was flying and reached 42.4 mph! Wahoo!!! That was fun. And there were parts where I was doing 25-30mph and didn't even feel like I was working at all. It only took us about 30 minutes to get back.
On the soccer front - My daughter's team lost all four games, but the one goal they did score was made by Madison!!! And, because there were only 4 teams in her division, they've qualified for nationals. Ha! They want to stay together and maybe even practice (imagine that) and play together some more. Should be interesting.
My son's team won 6-0. Their next game is at 6:30 and then we go straight from there to the Aztex game. And you can bet I'll be bundled up. The wind still hasn't died down.
