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.
