I have had an eventful week- full of happy smiles and glad to be alives! Ya know what I mean

The weeks happenings were:

Early morning Wasatch Crest Lap-
This is one of my all time favorite mountain bike trails to do, here at home.. It is beautiful and fast and fun.... even this time in the rain and clouds and mud- it was AMAZING! We all looked like we had crapped our pants due to so much mud flinging, but oh- what a blast.
MS 150-
Okay- so this year I didnt do the whole 150~ I really wanted to, but I couldn't find a sub for my yoga class on Saturday morning... so instead I headed to Logan Saturday night, camped with some friends (side-note my subaru+air mattress = amazing car camping experience) and rode 75 on Sunday. It was so beautiful, and very challenging because I did most of the race alone, very little drafting.. I was thankful it wasn't as windy as Little Red.
Oh, yeah.... so the canyon that we rode up today was closed to traffic from like 7-11. On my way down the canyon the cops had stopped several cars from going up, and the line was quite long... As we rode past the cars- they were flipping up off, calling us Mother F@!!!$ers and a holes... I was like really shocked... I couldn;t believe people could be so rude and unsupportive of "a good cause"! and shit, they should have made good use of thier time, cheered us on and then been on their way... CAN YOU BELIEVE PEOPLE!!!!

Any way- the race was a blast, and THANK YOU so much to all of you who donated..

Aced Stats Test
What more needs to be said

Arts Festival Rain Out
We were at the Arts festival, happy, looking at arts and stuff-
when suddenly a bid black rolling thunder filled cloud decided to hover and dump on us for a good 30 minutes... All of the folks at the Festival crammed into 3 large tents and watched at the rain came down... launghing, joking, and still being happy (they'all need to teach the bike haters a lesson) although kinda a bummer- twas interesting- It made me smile, and left a full double rainbow!

 Little Red Riding Hood

6 down
19 left to race!

What a fun day.
Another century down- and other race in the past! I am now into the "teens"- whew!
This race was an all women's race, 2600 Women, I believe.. Really amazing.
I had so much fun with Shelby and Tiffany- thank goodness for them I made it through. 
What a cool feeling to be riding in a team to finish something so challenging.
The race was hard... much harder than the last! We had a head wind for a large majority of the race, and as you know this does not make it easy! 
I have really been amazed by the human body- and what it allows us to do! 
I am so grateful for my health- and for people around me who encourage. The scenery was incredible- I never knew Logan was so beautiful 
My whole family was at the end to see me finish... This was so nice, I was so surprised :)... 
I have a great family. 

I have great friends.

I have a great life.
