What better way to beat the 104 degree heat in Denver than to head to the mountains for a down hill mountain bike race in Winter Park. Out of a field of about 50 Amateur men competitors, I placed first in my age group and first overall. Wahoo! I am especially happy because a while back, the only place my name showed when Googled was for a near last place finish in a different cross country race.
Tomorrow we leave for a family vacation for a week. My niece is getting married in Maryland. We’ll spend a little time with the grand parents, go to the beach and hang with the family. I am looking forward to a little down time.
