Sick Sick Sick

Ugh – apologies for the lack of posts lately everyone has been sick.  And I mean everyone. I was fighting something off the end of last week and into the weekend.  Calder got sick last Thursday, Cam got sick Sat and Evie got sick Tuesday…and by sick I mean projectile vomit.  To make matters worse the dog even barfed in the bed…luckily on my pillow so all I only had to change the pillow case.  Jojo was sick early this week, my mom vomited, even my nana is sick.  Ugh.  Don’t come around my house unless you have a biohazard suit.

First Post Pregnancy Bike Race!

Competed in my first post-pregnancy bike race today at the Bethel Spring Series – a series of criterium races held every spring about 40 minutes from my home.  The day started out slightly overcast and pretty chilly but during the almost 20 mile/22 loop race the sun came out and everyone warmed up quickly.  Luckily the pace was pretty controlled and there were no major attacks which made for a nice and gentle way to ease back into racing.  I was able to lead one lap but spent most of the time in the pack conserving energy for the sprint finish.  Unfortunately, I got stuck in traffic at the finish so was not able to finish well – but these races are just for fun, to get the legs going and work on bike skills for me.
