Today I was torn between a nice 10K trail race at Carkeek Park, and the Woodland Park cyclocross series finale. I went with the cyclocross - the clincher was that the boys could easily watch the race AND they could do their first ever cyclocross race. The day was awesome (but I think Matt is on the brink of a stress breakdown from chasing the boys around the park all day).
After my race, we met up with Costa, Holger, and Max (one of the boys' friend from school). Max, Cole, and Wilson were all prepping to do their first ever race. They were so very excited - I love seeing them get excited about sports. They were also all hoping to fall down to get to roll in the mud (which Wilson did often) which I found amusing. We had Cole and Wilson on balance bikes because their training wheels keep getting stuck in the mud. They now have a reason to get off the training wheels.
All in, great day, great race, can't wait to go again! And my knees don't hurt (a plus of cycling over running).
