Racing, Racing, Racing

Thursday night:  Dadddy bike race, Tegan bike race, Wawa (Casey's nickname given by Tegan) bike race, Tegan running race.
Saturday: Mommy 5k race, Tegan 1/4 mile running race, Wawa/Mommy (mommy carrying Wawa) 1/4 mile running
Sunday: Daddy and Tegan bike race (MNMBS#2 Mt Kato and the "USA Cycling State Championship Race")


Sunday went well and the weather was perfecto.  The course was tacky and in great shape too.  I stand my claim that Mankota is one of the best pure race courses in the series (technical enough to keep me entertained, ample passing, hard climbs to separate things, and some of the best XC descending in the state).   Regarding the actual racing action, I followed wheels, Doug and Jesse's to be specific, for the first lap and then made my move.  From there I suffered up the climbs, passed a lot of lapped traffic (inherent in a 5 lap race), and smiled as I rocked the downhills.  Riding the Luge downhill is about as much fun as you can have on 2 wheels!  I rolled across the line for the win a few minutes ahead of Jesse who was followed by none other than Mr Hinkens.

Next up is Buck Hill (hopefully, need to find kid care) and a team Duathlon w/ Jen Sunday.  Also, Tegan starts Baseball "Rookie Camp" Saturday.  I am putting the head coach hat on for the Rookie Brewer's team=)  My passion growing up was baseball and I want to be sure Tegan is exposed to as many different activity options as possible (not just racing!).
Life will slow down soon right?

Buck Hill #1 for Tegan

Buck Hill #1 for Casey.  This was her first bike race and I think she may have been the only 2 year old racing...  I am surprised there aren't more in the 2 year old category ;)

What we race for..candy
