So I'm at work this morning and getting harassed because my blog never talks about work, big deal right? At least that's the way I look at it, but I'm told since the name of the blog is "working racing and family" shouldn't I mention work, at least once in awhile. But really who cares about my job, I sit around and make sure people get projects done on time, talk with clients, and currently am working to ensure some software we are developing gets done on-time and correctly. That's about it, Readers Digest version.

Cruised up to Snowmass for the NCS finals over the weekend. Good racing and hanging out. Ade's family was all there so we had a birthday celebration for Seamus. He was pretty amped for presents and cake. On Saturday Eric raced and threw down a solid race in the pro finals. Finished the day 9th and the series in 18th (I think), not to bad on the series given he missed the east coast races.

I raced on Sunday and had another ass-kicking in Expert. The course was brutal after an all night rain much of the course was nearly unrideable. Lap times were 15-20 minutes slower than in the MSC race a few weeks ago on the same course. At one point there was a single-track climb that became about a 2km run. It sucked but I held on and finished 14th out of 19. I lost a lot of time on the upper technical section of the course, especially on the 1st lap. On the second lap I was getting chased by some people and managed to hold them off in the last 2-3km which was mostly downhill. I was pretty happy to maintain my position given how bad my dh skills suck at times.

Today is Seamus' last day of day-care. I'm taking the rest of the week off with him, then he starts kindergarten on Monday (also his real b-day). Should be a big adventure for him. It will be interesting to see how he handles the transition.
