I jumped on the trainer for my long warm up, only to learn the hay delivery man slept in so the race would be delayed at least an hour. Most people jumped in their car for an early morning nap or chill session. I took the opportunity to get in a longer warm-up. 2 hours later, I found my way to the line.
Sure enough the gun went off and like horses flying out of the start gates, we were off to the races!
I've now fallen in love with cycling in a whole new way. Yes, I actually enjoyed biking even though it didn't entail sitting in the saddle for 5+ hours. But, something else captured my heart that weekend! I knew I had a crush on this little guy, but now I am full on IN LOVE! The bonus to racing in Arizona, and much of the reason I go out there is to see my BFF. It's been way too long since I've seen her and her little man. He is more precious than ever and well....the picture says it all. I so miss that smile.
Oh Cole, I can't wait to see you again. You may of thought I was a stranger when I came in and swooped you up from your nap, but little buddy-you've captured my heart and I love you to pieces. XOXOXOXOXO.
