Sandia Peak Challenge 2011

Our last race was up in Albuquerque at Sandia Peak. Because of the fires, they moved the state championships over to this coarse instead of Cedro Peak. Unfortunately for a lot of people, this is a major hill climb. Last year we all had to go up and down the peak. This year we had to goa third of the way up, come back down, and then all the way back up and down again.

This is Mike on the first lap. The weather was great.

After I finally realized Jessica was taking pictures.

The starting line with all the Cat 2 guys.

I was trying to get all the Cat 2 girls pumped!

I got second overall and first in my category. Mike got fourth we did alright!

The Adventures of Barney Part Three

We decided to take Barney to Cloudcroft a few weekends ago. He has so much energy so we wanted to wear him out! We decided to take the Rim Trail backwards and hit some rocky parts.

Barney and Mike on the long downhill.

He kept sprinting to keep up with Mike. That tongue was out!
Then he got a little tired and would go back and check on me.

Mike went ahead and had a big spill. You can't see it, but his thigh has a massive gouge in it too. I spared you guys the picture!

As soon as I took that pic of Mike, Barney and I took off in a different direction. The storm clouds started to roll in and all of a sudden some major lightning started striking. Barney and I took off for the main road, but we were five miles out. I rode my bike while Barney ran along side me for four miles. It was pouring rain!

This is what he looked like when we got back to the car.

The next couple days he was limping around and could barely walk. But he was a trooper!

Brad's Birthday At The Lake

I've been dying to go to the lake all summer so Mike talked to Kimball so we could all go out for Brad's birthday and ride the waves.

It was so nice out and I love to just sit and ride in the boat! Mike does too. :)

Brad making one of his first jumps.

Abe and Kimball hanging out on the front of the boat.

Sporting the new bathing suit.

The keychain they were making fun of.

I love this pic. The boys decided to go cliff diving and I love the view. Kimball went first with a back flip, then Abe with a scary jump, and then Mike.

It was nice to get a boat trip in by the end of the summer.
