Where I've Been

Wednesday, April 21, 2010


Well the Penticton camp is now over and base miles are done with for the mean time. The camp was pretty fun it was nice to see every one again. I got a little bit sick on the camp after being out in the rain and snow for a couple hours on one ride, but just took a rest day and I was ready to get back out there. Also Advil works wonders.

After the camp my mom was going to come pick me up in Penticton and we were going to drive up to Abbotsford on the Saturday but as mother nature had it, she made a blizzard in Saskatchewan. It was pretty crazy to hear some of the stories about the white out highways and crazy high winds. All I can say about that, is that I’m so glad that I wasn’t there when it happened. So I was a stuck in Penticton by myself for a while so I camped out in the hotel room watching TV. We were only a day late with going to Abbotsford which wasn’t bad.

I had my first stage race of the year a couple days ago. We drove down to Walla Walla Washington. I was pretty nervous for the whole race because it was going to be my first time racing as a cat ½ woman. It was a lot of fun being there. It really reminded me why I like racing and reminded me that I was crazy for liking racing and the pain that comes with it. We had a bit of a Saskatchewan reunion down in Walla Walla, there were a few familiar faces that I ran into.
